I graduated from Gravenhurst AETC in 2012 and went on to earn my diploma as a Chemical Lab Technologist from St. Clair College in Windsor. I plan to further my education and get my degree in physics. I wish to give kudos to my teachers at GAETC. As an assignment Mel, my english teacher, had her students write a letter about their goals and then she sends the letter 3 years later to her students. I recently received my letter which is very cool, a testament to the support and encouragement I received from GAETC staff. Thank you.Jesse Ketch, AETC

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.Rob, AETC
