Alternative Programs

English as a Second Language (ESL)

The ESL program is designed for students whose primary language is not English. While English Language Learner (ELL) students have much in common with other students, they often have additional needs that come with learning a new language and adapting to a new culture. This program enables students to become effective communicators in the English language, allowing them to develop their skills and gain confidence in speaking, reading, writing, and listening. 


Knowledge and Employment Program (K&E)

Courses in the K&E program are designed to provide experiential learning to enhance the development of skills in the areas of reading, writing and mathematical literacy immediate for transition to the workplace. Eligible students are provided with individualized programming that remains flexible over the course of the year. Students who successfully complete the K&E program earn an Alberta Certificate of Achievement.


Interactions Program

Our Interactions program supports students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Our goal is to improve communication, social interaction and behaviour while developing academic skills. Students’ unique capabilities are highlighted and opportunities to develop their skills are incorporated into their daily routine. Students can also earn work experience credits through volunteer opportunities in the school!


Individual Support Program (ISP)

Individual Support programming supports students with severe to profound developmental disabilities. Students may have physical, sensory or behavioural challenges, and/or medical conditions, requiring special accommodations. The goal of ISP is to build functional and communication skills that enhance quality of life for students
