Regional Learning Choices Programs (RLCP) empower students by providing an opportunity to develop and explore skills in a particular area of interest. The Peel board provides elementary students from across Brampton, Mississauga and Caledon with six different Regional Learning Choices Programs. The programs are open to all eligible students. The entry point is grade 6 for all programs, except for the Arts program South of Highway 401, which is held at Queen Elizabeth P.S and has a grade 7 entry point.
Please note that students in the Elementary Regional Learning Choices Program will not automatically be accepted into the same program for high school. They must apply to the Secondary RLCP in the same way all other students are applying and participate in the same assessment process.
Students and their families are encouraged to attend the information night for the program of their choice to receive specific information about the program and application details. Use the Find Your School tool to access a list of Regional Learning Choices Programs available in your boundary, based on your home address.
