Campus EPSB

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.
