Street School is an adult continuing education program designed for learners who are unlikely to attend school in a structured or traditional academic setting. Street School provides an opportunity for students to learn basic literacy skills and acquire accredited high school courses that can be used towards a grade 12 adult dogwood diploma. Courses are free and self paced. The school offers individualized instruction, self-esteem building, one to one tutoring, flexible hours, and a hot lunch/breakfast program. In addition to academics, students will have the opportunity to receive support in accessing community resources and services if needed. Street School is offered in partnership with School District No. 73.
