The DSBN and Niagara College have a unique opportunity available for Grade 12 students called Connecting to College (C2). This program is for students who would like to experience the college environment, thereby exploring whether it is the right post-secondary option for them.
Students apply through the Student Success Office typically in late May of their Grade 11 year. In the general C2 program, students attend one of Niagara College's campuses in the afternoon, Monday to Thursday. They take 2 general elective college courses which are preset each year. These are dual credit courses - students earn both a high school credit AND a college credit for the same course. There is no fee for this program and transportation is provided.
Other C2 programs are more specialized. Currently, there are others in the areas of Arts and Culture, Business and Tech Design. These programs run one or two days a week. Students in these programs are hand-timetabled as they continue to take afternoon classes at SWC.
Listen to announcements in late spring for the applications or see Ms. Romaniuk in the Student Success Office.
