Alternate Community Programs

ACP School Plan for Student Success Implementation 2021-2022.pdf​​​​​​

School District # 57 offers alternatives to mainstream education programs. Students are required to meet specific criteria and in need of Tier 3 interventions to be considered for an Alternative setting.  Prior to acceptance, information is gathered from the last school/education facility, caregivers, community agencies and supports and is discussed at a screening committee to determine the best placement. 

At the Alternate Community Programs (ACP) our students love the flexibility of our programs and they value their relationship with our staff.  

We offer a variety of flexible learning options that are focused on the needs of the learners. 

We provide a safe and caring space with reasonable boundaries and expectations. Our in-take team will assess where you are in your stage of learning and support you with the services that best meet your individual needs as you move along the graduation path. When you are ready, we will help you with the next steps of your education journey. 

We offer a five-day schedule. From Monday to Friday, each day consists of  core academics, electives and core competency work. Ventures, and our Land based programming at W.E.L.L provide a great opportunity to encourage students to experience the outdoors with a focus on physical health and well being.

Student Leadership, Bean Bar Cafe and new this year- the ACP Landscaping Project,  provide opportunities for our students to have a voice in our school, to learn while contributing positively and to gain valuable experiences that will help them beyond their time at school. 

 We have a variety of classrooms, access to technology, full gym, Foods and Nutrition room, music and art spaces, and a full woodworking shop.  Learn in a safe place at your own pace!  

These supports are available for students who need more time and support before learning begins.
