Primary Goal
Our primary goal is the ultimate and successful re-integration of our students into a regular school
setting with minimal support. Obviously, for some students, this is an easier task than for others. To
attain our primary goal, we include an intensive upgrading of students' skill gaps to the level of the
Ministry and Board guidelines for appropriate grade levels. We also provide them with individually
tailored learning strategies which they can apply to other settings to ensure their continued success.

Secondary Goals

1.  The understanding and attainment of socially acceptable and appropriate behaviours.
2.  The further comprehension and integration of personal awareness, including the
3.  The attainment of a level of true independence in life skills and academic ability.
4.  The development of academic tolerance, determination and success through the use of
effective             study, learning, and homework strategies
5.   The attainment of positive decision-making and critical thinking skills leading to a successful
and           happy life.
