Secondary Enhanced Programs & Academies Night | January 23, 2019

January 08, 2019

Our enhanced programs are designed to assist students to develop an approach to their career pathways and life goals through flexible options that include project-based activities, work experience, and Distributed (online) Learning. We offer personalized, authentic learning experiences for each student.

In January of each school year, the North Vancouver School District presents an Enhanced Programs and Academies Night for students currently in grades 7 to 11 and their parents/guardians.

The evening provides an opportunity for students and parents/guardians to meet staff and student volunteers to familiarize themselves with the NVSD Enhanced Programs and Academies. It's an ideal time to ask questions and learn if one of our programs is the right fit.
