Junior High & High School Outreach

Connections for Learning Junior High & High School Outreach provides flexible, innovative programming to help students realize success in their career and educational goals. This program focuses on the individual needs of students. The students, parents, teachers and administration collaborate closely together to create a personalized program plan designed specifically to meet the academic, social/emotional, health and wellness learning needs of each individual student.

Programming is available for students to earn an Alberta High School Diploma or an Alberta High School Certificate of Achievement. This can be achieved through individualized outreach programming or other alternative High School programs that Connections for Learning offers. For more information about other alternative High School programming, please visit the Programs section of our website or contact the Connections for Learning office.
