What Students Say

It’s never too late to finish something you started long ago.
Jeremy, LAETC
The staff here are really friendly.  They are willing to go the extra mile to help you out.
Charles, LAETC
As I reflect on the time I have spent in your school, I really enjoyed the work and the fantastic staff.  I will recommend friends to pay the Alternate Education Centre a visit; you know, the people who were like me, that need that extra push to complete their grade 12.
With paid co-op, I was able to complete my grade 12 without having to give up my job and return to school full time.
Caitlin, LAETC
With the support of the teachers at LAETC and the support of my employer, I successfully obtained 2 credits in a short period of time.
