Eric Dallin, Principal

Welcome to the Burnhamthorpe community; we are like no other! Our team of caring teachers and support staff will always be there to support both the academic and well-being needs of our adult students using an equity lens. Our EdVance program serves students aged 18 to 20; our Adult program and specialty programs serve students aged 21 plus. All pathways are offered (university, college, workplace, apprenticeship). We welcome students from all over the city including new Canadians and international students! We support your success!

We pride ourselves as a school that doesn’t just offer courses. Student well-being is at the forefront. This takes on so many forms which includes counselling, tutoring, lunch & learns, nutrition programs, sports & clubs, foyer events, assemblies, guest speakers, field trips, and whole school events that bring the whole community together. The majority of our courses are in-person and we support our students in both academic and social/emotional needs.

Some of our specialty programs include PSW (Personal Support Worker), Child Care Assistant, OYAP-Hairstyling, and Co-operative Education. We do everything that we can to design a positive learning experience for you that leads to your future success. There is something for everyone at Burnhamthorpe! Go Bucs!
