We would like to acknowledge that our schools are on unceded Algonquin Territory, and thank the Algonquin Nation for hosting us on their land.

Why Choose Alternate?

Richard Pfaff Secondary Alternate Program offers:

  • The ability to flex structure to accommodate for students at risk.
  • An attendance system that rewards hardworking students and places responsibility for poor attendance with the student.
  • An 8:00 - 10:00 a.m. flexible start time that allows students to tailor their school day to meet out-of-school obligations.
  • Access to an addiction counsellor, social worker, psychologist, Ontario Works and nurse practitioner on site.
  • Students have access to the same curriculum offered at traditional high schools at the applied/college and academic/university levels.
  • A large percentage of our graduates attend college and university each year.
  • There are three staff on site dedicated to cooperative education and specialized co-op.
  • The school has clear and consistent expectations and consequences that provide students with a solid framework they can count on.
  • It should be noted that no special education services are provided at the alternate sites. Due to the fact that the curriculum is delivered using ILC (Independent Learning Courses) materials, good reading and writing skills are required.
