Are you looking for a different High School experience?
At Contact you won’t be just another student number, you’ll be an important member of a small community. Our focus as a school is on Community Building, Social Justice and Personal Responsibility, so students are expected to participate in weekly General Meetings and in the planning and execution of many aspects of school life, including: field trips and special activity days, suggesting courses for the school to offer every year, and the Nutrition Program, which provides a free lunch daily to all students.
What kinds of courses are available at Contact?
Contact offers a wide range of grade 9 to 12 courses, particularly in applied level, though some academic university-level courses are available. All courses provide credits leading to an Ontario Secondary School Diploma.
What's different about Contact?
At Contact, we know that there’s more to life than just school, and that life outside of school can offer complex challenges. Contact teachers do their best to be flexible with respect to student academic needs: we have 2 full-time guidance teachers, a full-time on-site Youth Counsellor, and available Social Workers. Whatever you need, we want to be able to help. We want you to succeed at everything you do.
So, who can attend Contact?
If you are between 16 and 20 years of age, don’t like your present school, or are out of school and want to return to school, consider Contact.
How do I sign up?
Contact welcomes new students 4 times a year. Everyone interested in attending Contact must come to an Information Session, complete an application form, provide a Credit Counselling Summary and attend a personal interview. We will be able to welcome you as a contact student if we can provide you with a program that meets your needs.
The next Information Sessions are in June for the beginning of the upcoming 2016/2017 school year. Be sure to bring a credit summary, your Health Card number and be prepared to complete an English writing sample, as well as other paperwork.
If you have further questions, please call the school at (416) 393-1455 and ask to speak with a Guidance Counsellor.
