The School of Immigrant and Transitional Education provides programming that is flexible and more individualized than mainstream programming, with tailored supports such as added counselling and advising, individualized learning plans, and specialized services. The School offers smaller classrooms and built-in accommodations to meet individual learner needs creating a supportive learning environment for our students.
Faculty and staff are educated in areas such as anti-oppressive education, counselling and advising, social work, psychology, cross-cultural communication, literacy and language development, and understand the impacts that poverty, immigration status, negative school experiences, mental health issues, addictions, learning disabilities, and other challenges can have on student success.
