Avondale Alternative Secondary School

Welcome to Avondale Secondary Alternative School

We are now accepting applications for 2nd Semester 2022 in Grades 10 - 12. If you are reengaging with in person school or thinking you may thrive in a smaller school setting you have found the right place.

Avondale Secondary Alternative School is a small and caring community where every student is accepted, valued and celebrated.  At Avondale, students take an active role in creating a dynamic program and learning culture.  For the 2021-2022 school year we will run a  semestered format.  We offer intellectually rigorous courses at the academic and university/college preparation levels. Our teaching approach centres on dialogue and student engagement. We also run many opportunities for experiential learning and student leadership.

Food for Kids Program

We know that the closure of schools has been difficult for many families, especially those who rely on school-based Student Nutrition Programs. The TDSB and the Toronto Foundation for Student Success have teamed up to provide families at your school with $50 grocery store food cards (one per TDSB student). If your family would benefit from this card, please complete the registration form online.
