What is Off Campus Learning?
The Off-Campus Education program provides an opportunity for high school students to enhance and apply, in real-life contexts, knowledge, skills and attitudes acquired through course work. This program is viewed as a partnership of student, school and community. Partnerships provide opportunities for students to explore and expand their career interests and aptitudes in meaningful activities, situated in community-based work sites and volunteer agencies. These partnerships will provide our students with the knowledge and skills needed by business and help to ensure that our young people are able to contribute positively to the changes occurring in our economic, cultural and social fabric. Currently, Highwood High School offers the following programs in partnership with our surrounding community:
1) Registered Apprenticeship Program (RAP)
2) Work Experience- working for wages or volunteering? Check with the Off Campus Coordinator to see if you are eligible to be set up on a learning plan to earn credits. Start by downloading the Off Campus Agreement form (under the FORMS tab) and getting parent and employer to sign it!
3) The Green Certificate Program
4) Career Internship Program- Up to 5 credits may be earned for students working in setting that explores a career path.
Check out more detailed information on Green & RAP under the "Departments" menu on the Home page of the school website.
