Outreach Programs are community-based high schools for young people who, due to particular personal and/or family situations, experience obstacles in their educational pursuits. In the academic stream, youth embark on self-directed, personalized learning.

Discovering Choices works in partnership with other organizations to complement / supplement a holistic approach in supporting young people who face life’s numerous challenges.  Some of the partnerships we work closely with include the Alex, Alberta Health Services, United Way, Youth Justice, Youth Central, Integro, Cenovus, the Food Bank and Brown Bag.

As part of the partnership with Calgary Achievement Centre for Youth (CACY), Discovering Choices works in conjunction with the Eau Claire YMCA for Physical Education, the City of Calgary (Youth Employment Centre), the Calgary Immigrant Youth Services, Calgary Catholic Family Services and the Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada (LINC) program to provide services. Clinical resources and outreach support services are available.

Mission Statement

“To provide an alternative educational program that provides personalized educational as well as social and emotional supports to our students.”

Vision

Discovering Choices is committed to providing a safe, nurturing and encouraging educational milieu that keeps students connected to their present and future learning needs. We work with our allied agencies to provide students a “holistic” approach to learning. We support students to gain the competencies that will help them acquire a love of learning and become responsible, contributing, and caring members of society.

  • A shared sense of ownership of learning involves the student, caregivers, school, and community, and is necessary to build a positive foundation for learning and health.
  • Learning takes place best within a nurturing and trusting environment that fosters rapport among teachers, students, and the students supports.
  • All individuals have an inherent value and are worthy of our unconditional positive regard
  • All individuals are capable of lifelong learning.
  • All learners are unique and in diversity is strength
  • All individuals are entitled to quality learning experiences.

School Development Plan

​Each year, our school prepares a development plan with input from teachers, school staff, students and parents. We review many sources of data, including report cards, provincial achievement test results and school surveys. Based on this information, we create our plan identifying targeted areas for growth. Our school development plan is not meant to represent all of the work that takes place in our school, but rather it focuses on specific areas for improvement.​​​

School Results Report

Our school also prepares a results plan, which looks at our previous school year. It shows our students’ achievement and progress in meeting the goals and outcomes as set out by the CBE and Alberta Education, outlines some of the highlights of our school development plan and gives an overview of our school. You can look on the CBE website for system-wide results​.

Update | We’re postponing the next phase of our high school engagement until Fall 2020. This change does not affect the timeline or our commitment to have two active engagement phases between now and the final decision https://t.co/ClQGI1gdog #yycbe #CBEHighSchool https://t.co/oHPyhOd5Ux
