There are a number of alternative learning opportunities that are available to students in the TDSB. Generally these are not available until grade 10 and beyond. The environments vary and are aimed at providing students with an alternative educational experience suited to their learning styles/preferences and/or needs. Each of the schools and programs differs in their approach to student learning and program structure. The admission criteria, age, and/or grade for entry differs for each Alternative School and Program although a student profile has been included to help guide interested students to an appropriate choice. For more specific admission requirements, please contact the school or program directly or access school profiles. Please keep these in mind if your child is having difficulty in a regular program beyond grade 9.
