Campus EPSB

Campus EPSB is designed as an additional way for students to earn high school credits and industry credentials, to get ahead of their studies or prepare for post-secondary. It’s a great way to explore opportunities and get hands-on experiences that can help students plan their next steps.

Programs are offered in the first or second semester at Centre High Campus, Eastglen, M.E. LaZerte, McNally, Queen Elizabeth and W.P. Wagner schools.

Three blocks of the day (15 credits) will be spent in Campus EPSB programming and one block in a core or option course (5 credits) required for graduation, with the exception of Health Care Aide that runs all four blocks of the day. Watch short video.

Have questions? Please contact Jordan.dunn@epsb.ca or visit Campus EPSB.  TO APPLY: Complete the online application form by June 1, 2018.

CONSIDERATIONS

Keep in mind that transportation to Campus EPSB programs won’t be co-ordinated by the school or the program. Students who take one of the 2018-19 semester programs are still considered students of their current school and won’t be able to transfer to the other school when the semester is done.
