Pre-Employment - Project, Academics, Skills & Experience (PASE) is a two year program at Windermere which may lead to Grade 10 equivalency.
In a supportive, collaborative environment, students build their confidence and skills through a unique combination of core academics, work experience, community involvement, outdoor adventure, and hands-on shop experience. Students have one elective choice separate from the P.A.S.E. program.
P.A.S.E. is an excellent choice for students 15-18 years old who are struggling in a traditional classroom setting or are coming from a junior special education program.
PASE Program referrals must be submitted to Learning Services.
A successful P.A.S.E. student, based on achievement and interests, can pursue a variety of paths after completing the P.A.S.E program.
Some possibilities include the following:
Enroll in grade 11 courses towards a Dogwood Graduation Certificate, or an Evergreen School Completion Certificate
Enroll in a senior Alternate or Special Education Program
Select mainstream courses with part-time enrollment in P.A.S.E. in a mentorship capacity with continued personal and academic development
Enter the work force or a post-secondary training program
Complete requirements for an appropriate high school ACE IT program
