As the school year winds down, students are working feverishly to complete their courses and prepare for the next steps, whether that is returning next year, transitioning to a new school, or graduating and moving on to the next phase of their lives (work, apprenticeship, college or university).

Staff are working with students to get them to their chosen destination and are now preparing for our graduation ceremony to be held this year on Wednesday June 27th. This year approximately 50 students from our Milton site and 55 students from our Halton Hills location will potentially graduate. Staff, students and family are always excited to take part in this event each year.

This month our alternative students continued with their weekly art sessions by ArtHouse. Students have found this experience very interesting and therapeutic. Our students also visited Sheridan college (Brampton Campus) to explore future educational opportunities and joined our Halton Hills group for an engaging, interactive day hosted by Altitude, a program run by McMaster University staff to explore more experiential learning opportunities and team building activities.

The group of students at the Outdoor Education programs: Trailhead and Bronte Creek project are completing their coursework and preparing for their end of year camping trip in Algonquin park in early June.

Pre-registration for our adult Online Plus program is now open for next year. Anyone interested should visit our website to book an intake appointment.
