All students, regardless of their postsecondary destination, have the opportunity to take co-op. Cooperative Education is a planned learning experience, for which credits are earned, that integrates classroom theory and learning experiences at a workplace. Two co-op credits can count towards a student's compulsory requirements in Groups 1, 2 and/or 3.

"Learning from Experience"


Start by doing what's necessary, then what's possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible." -- Francis of Assisi


Students continue to excel in their placements, making connections to their learning and the world of work, enjoying varied learning environments thanks to the continued support of local employers.




Some students have chosen APPRENTICEABLE TRADES and are being signed on by supportive employers. Students can start an apprenticeship after they have acquired 16 credits and are 16 years of age, usually in grade 11. Coop hours can be included for their apprenticeship hours. This gives them a great start at their career when they graduate.

We greatly appreciate the support of employers in assisting students to explore so many different career opportunities.
