Dual Credit Academic Info Night

Dual Credit Academics

January 26th, 7:15pm- 8:00pm 

Mark R. Isfeld – Theatre

Students in grade 11 may sign up to take one or more first year college courses, or a certificate program that supports them in transitioning into a career, or down a career pathway. There are many courses and certificate programs available through North Island College that provide smaller class sizes and have supportive instructors who are keen to engage new learners in areas of passion.

There will be time for questions, as well as NIC staff on site to engage in meaningful conversations around how this might be a great fit for you and/or your child.

ADST Projects in Grades 4-7

One our goals this year is to support teachers and provide learning opportunities for students in grades 4-7  to take part in a variety of hands on learning projects. We have been working hard to design teacher guides and build toolboxes so that all elementary school students can learn how to use hand tools and explore creating, ideating and designing.  Teachers will be provided with training, lessons and resources for a variety of project, here are a few:

Grade 4: Planter/Pollinator Boxes

Grade 5: Bird Feeder

Grade 6: Bird House

Introduction Into the Trades: STEP

The STEP program is designed to support students who are curious about entering the trades. This 3 level (4 days per level) program supports with learning the basics about hand tools, power tools, and certificate acquisition. Students will walk away with an idea of what trade most interest them, WHIMIS and other certifications, and a Forklift certificate.
