Important Update: The Ontario government has announced that, due to the continued spread of COVID-19, all publicly-funded schools in Ontario, including those at the TDSB, will remain closed until Monday, May 4, 2020.

How to Register     

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, our school is currently closed by order of the Minister of Education for Ontario.  

At this time, we are not accepting new student registrations for quad 4.  However we have every intention of serving the needs of our current students.  For this reason, we are making plans for current quad 3 students to complete their quad 4 courses through an online learning format with our teachers.  More information regarding quad 4 will follow as details become available. 

Current quad 3 students are asked to contact their teachers and keep up to date with course work which is also available online.  

We wish all of our students and their families continued health and well-being during this very difficult time.

The TDSB has created this brief form to help us understand how many of our students need devices and/or access to the Internet at home.

Welcome to The Scarborough Centre for Alternative Studies!  Our school represents a unique opportunity for adult students to learn new skills, develop new ways of thinking and to change direction in life.  Whether you are completing the requirements of The Ontario Secondary School Diploma, earning the prerequisites for a post-secondary program, or gaining work experience through Co-operative Education, SCAS provides a supportive and encouraging learning environment.

Our classes focus on learning by doing, on solving realistic problems and on discussing complex issues.  Our teachers recognize the life experiences of our students and use this knowledge to enhance the curriculum.  Our teachers also recognize that much learning occurs outside of the classroom.  To that end, they sponsor field trips, clubs and sporting events.  Students are encouraged to follow their example and become actively engaged in the life of the school.

Congratulations on your decision to consider The Scarborough Centre for Alternative Studies.  It's the first step to reaching your goal.
