Applicants—local and out-of-region
Our Regional Learning Choices Programs are open to all eligible students. Students who meet the criteria for acceptance to the programs and who live in Brampton, Caledon and Mississauga will be offered spots first.
Students who live in Peel can only apply to regional programs they are eligible for based on the programs' boundaries. Please visit program web pages below or call the school for boundary information .
Students who meet the program criteria and who live outside of Peel Region will be offered spots once local student applicants have been accommodated. In some cases, all spots may be offered to students who live in Peel.
It's important to note, also, that students who attend a Regional Learning Choices Program in middle school – grades 6, 7 or 8 – will not automatically be accepted into the same program for high school. They must apply to the secondary program in the same way all other students are applying, and participate in the same assessment process.
Transportation is not provided for students in regional programs. If students have been accepted into a regional program and they live within the school boundary, they are eligible for busing only if they meet the distance criteria outlined in Policy 39 - Transportation.
