The Combined Studies Program is an alternate academic education program that supports students who have had difficulty in the mainstream setting. It is a program for academically capable students in Grades 10 through 12. Students, aged 16-19 who successfully complete their schooling through the Combined Studies Program earn a regular Dogwood Certificate of Graduation which allows them to pursue post-secondary education in a variety of fields.
The Combined Studies program operates on the principles of attendance/participation, peer/teacher respect, development of a solid work ethic, and 100% completion of all projects. This is a hands-on learning environment that meets the needs of students with a wide range of learning styles.
The program operates on a quarterly system with three intakes per year. Students must interview.
