Through Elm Alternate School, young people can obtain a Grade 10 or Grade 12 equivalency certificate, or a Dogwood certificate (high school diploma).
Students work at their own pace, either in the morning or afternoon program, supported by a teacher. The morning program runs from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and the afternoon program runs from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. Monday to Thursday.
Any young person 15 to 19 years old who has been out of school for three months can apply.
Elm Alternate is totally flexible; students may start at any time during the school year and leave when they have completed the program.
