Welcome to Elizabeth Wyn Wood Secondary Alternate Program

The Elizabeth Wyn Wood Alternate High School program allows students to work towards their Ontario Secondary School Diploma (O.S.S.D.) via a pathway tailored for them.

Students work on one credit at a time, have access to the same core curriculum offered at traditional high schools at the applied/college and academic/university levels and have opportunities to participate in cooperative education placements, apprenticeship and house building focus programs.

We work collaboratively with the student, their family or school resources to achieve the intended goals.

Our Students

Students who attend an alternate program are seeking an alternative to the traditional high school setting with a different delivery model. Alternate programs offer students an opportunity to learn at their own pace. Students work on one course at a time, and are able to complete six or more courses in an academic year. The focus is on student directed learning. Student progress is monitored closely and students are held accountable for their work.

  • Students can work towards an Ontario Secondary School Diploma.
  • Applied, academic, college and university level courses are available.
  • Our students range from 16-20 years of age.
  • Students benefit from a non-semestered, one course at a time setting.
  •  No special education or ESL programming.
  •  Minimum grade 10 level of reading comprehension is highly recommended.

The students must be committed to their education and demonstrate this through consistent academic progress and responsible behaviour.
