School/College Work Initiative

The School-College-Work Initiative is a co-operative effort with a mandate to assist in creating a seamless transition for students from secondary school to college. In addition to a wide array of learning and awareness opportunities for students, teachers, parents and the broader community, projects have been developed to provide dual credit programs for secondary students through the partnership of secondary schools and colleges.

SCWI creates opportunities for school boards and colleges to bring together faculty, teachers and administrators to work collaboratively to increase opportunities for student success. Since its inception the growth and success of the SCWI projects have been phenomenal. Many students from grades 7 through 12 and their teachers will be involved this year in special forums, hands-on learning opportunities and visits to colleges.

Presently the Huron Perth Catholic District School Board has SCWI agreements with both Conestoga College and Lambton College and an advanced standing agreement with Fanshawe College.
