Y(our) Program is a Parkland School Division alternative high school program of choice built on your questions, your ideas, and your impact on community.
Y(our) Program is a student-led learning environment which combines core curriculum with out-of-classroom learning opportunities. Students will take charge of their learning by creating custom projects and opportunities with teachers and community members, which will have real-world outcomes and impact in their communities.
Aimed at creating an environment where students can live out Parkland School Division’s vision - ensuring they possess the confidence, resilience, insight and skills required to thrive in, and positively impact, the world - Y(our) Program ignites students’ curiosity, illuminates their passions, builds their world-changing abilities, fosters collaboration, social emotional learning and equity. Y(our) Program supports students’ brave and confident pursuit of their ideas and dreams.
Each student will work on a variety of personal passion projects which have a direct impact on their community throughout the three years of Y(our) Program. These projects provide a personalized learning approach, which gives students the relationships, tools and experiences that help them develop as community leaders and innovators. These inquiry-based, authentic learning opportunities help students to think critically, explore deeply, challenge themselves, and contribute positively to their world; and to allow them to learn from their failures and successes in a safe environment.
Emphasis will be placed on developing a proactive, holistic lifestyle, including mental health and social emotional literacy, active living, nutrition, and strong partner/family relationships and community connections.
