Ernest Manning Off-Campus Education Programs are designed to help students recognize their special gifts, talents, skills and interests, by putting their education into a meaningful framework. Our programs play a vital role in assisting students’ transition into the workforce and post-secondary education. Students who participate in Off-Campus Education benefit by:

  • learning and developing the knowledge and skills demanded by business, while enhancing their future employability.
  • gaining valuable hands-on work-related experiences, that open up additional opportunities for future employment.
  • the opportunity to gain insight to their career development options, which support successful transition from school to work and from school to a post-secondary institution.

Ernest Manning High School Off-Campus Education Opportunities include:

Dual Credit ProgramsThese programs are designed for high school students who are interested in specific career areas and would like to work towards post-secondary and/or workplace certifications, while still attending high school.

Exploratory ProgramsThese programs are designed for high school students who are interested in a skilled trade and would like to work with a journeyman, in order to explore the trade and earn both workplace certifications and high school credits.
