There's lots to do and lots to be involved in here at SCAS. Here are just some of the activities we offer:
Eco Club (ECOTEAM) - Bill Ward
Are you concerned about creating a better environment for ourselves and for our future generations?
SCAS does regular recycling in our classrooms and offices. We also do gardening in the school garden at the front of the school. Other projects involve raising school awareness on various environmental topics such as reducing waste of paper, electricity, water, food, and use of plastic water bottles and coffee cups. Students are encouraged to participate to help us make our school and our world more eco-friendly! If you have any environmental interest or project you would like to get involved in, please contact Bill Ward by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Gay, Straight Alliance (GSA)

The program is run by dedicated staff & student volunteers. If you are interested in helping with the Nutrition Program or if you are in need, contact the Principal.
Muslim Student Association (MSA)
The MSA is a group for students who would like to promote the cultures of the Muslim faith, and to provide a safe place to discuss issues and successes within the school community. EVERYONE is welcome! The MSA sponsors a prayer room in room 150.
SCAS is proud to partners with CCS to host two settlement workers in the school. Settlement workers can assist with immigration issues, health care information, housing and referrals to community agencies. The settlement workers are located in room 147A. Their hours are posted on the door.
Student Council (SC)
At SCAS, the Student Council is the foundation for school spirit and the voice of students. Our Student Council is comprised of Adult (21 years plus) and Ed-Vance (18 to 20 years) students who articulate the concerns and interests of our entire student body. The Student Council inspires and motivates others to accomplish common goals. Student Council representatives listen to a broad range of perspectives and act in a manner that is inclusive of everyone at SCAS. Student Council organizes activities that help to enrich our school’s community and our students’ lives. It organizes all-school field trips (e.g. Centre Island, Toronto zoo, and Rouge Valley), connects and works with community organizations, runs charity events, organizes school BBQ events, and helps to acquire low-cost computers for students in need through outreach programs.
