Immaculata High School Achievement Centre at St. Mary's Home
Students who can attend this achievement centreThis achievement centre offers pregnant teens the opportunity to earn credits towards their OSSD as they prepare for the birth of their infants. Many students of St. Mary’s Home have had gaps in their education. The welcoming classroom setting and the valuable programs delivered at the Home re-engage these young women in a motivating and supportive environment.
Benefits of attending this centreThis special link between the OCSB and St. Mary’s Home began in spring 2000. The classroom combines a warm and inviting mood with state-of-the-art technology. High school credits are earned in a variety of subjects under the guidance of a full-time teacher. Working together with St. Mary’s Home programs, the Immaculata High School Achievement Centre offers a respectful and supportive environment. In this way, two generations benefit at once: both mother and baby.
OutcomesThe students here are offered a program that leads to a high school diploma or other educational or job opportunities. They will be motivated to take control of their life choices. The schooling at this achievement centre guides the development of the whole person.
