Head Start on High School

​2 students hold up certificates of completion.pngIn July more than 250 GECDSB students at 8 different locations took advantage of our Reaching Ahead program to get a high school credit before they even started high school.

The recently graduated Grade 8s completed β€‹the Discovering the Workplace course - which usually covers an entire semester - in less than a month with classroom and on-line work. They also learned about earning the 40 hours of community service required to complete their Ontario Secondary School Diploma. 

Reaching Ahead also gives students an opportunity to ease the transition from elementary to secondary school. It will be offered again in July, 2020.
