We had our graduation ceremony last night (Thursday, Oct 21) and as usual it was an inspiring and moving experience. For us teachers, it is the apex of our relationship with our students, the reason we are here at Contact. Students, who in many cases never thought they would achieve this life milestone, receive the honours and congratulations they have worked so hard for, and leave with a renewed belief in themselves and a new sense of hope for the future. It truly is the best day of the year for all of us at Contact. Congratulations you guys, you did it!

​​Program Highlights 

  • Strong guidance and social services support to our students to help them deal with obstacles which may prevent them from achieving their full potential
  • Nutrition program including breakfast and a lunch cooked and served by teachers and students. 
  • Opportunities to participate in our unique "Paid" Co-Op program, which grants students 2 co-operative education credits while they maintain part-time employment outside of the school (students must already have a part-time job before applying to the program).
  • Instruction that is multi-levelled, individualized, and that both recognizes and encourages different learning styles​​
  • To teach and practice social justice, both formally and informally, as the primary and fundamental value of our school community.

Contact is a learning environment that supports students in achieving their academic and personal goals. There is a team that consists of a Curriculum Leader, Teachers, a full-time Child and Youth Counsellor, a Social Worker and a Resource Teacher who provide support to help students earn their high school diploma and make post-secondary plans.

We offer small classes, a caring and inclusive environment and adapt to the unique needs of each student. Contact has vibrant Co-op, Credit Recovery and Extra Credit programs, a strong Phys Ed program, and packaged courses that help students earn compulsory credits in a more engaging manner.
