Career High programming is also available at Gasoline Alley Career High School and through the Sundre Learning Centre. Please note: Adult learners who are 20 years and older will be supported by Gasoline Alley Career High for the 2021-2022 year. 

Dedicated Career High teachers at each site work closely with the school’s full teaching staff to determine the best path forward for each student. Students have access to the broader resources of the school (including all curricular and extracurricular programs from athletics and counselling to specialized courses and specific career training) - all while being supported by the distinct Career High approach to learning. As Career High students become more aware of the opportunities available to them within the high school, many are choosing this type of blended programming which is opening exciting doors for them. 

We know students are drawn to career high programming for a variety of reasons. They are all supported by the Chinook’s Edge commitment of ensuring high leverage strategies to help them find success in their learning. Career High programming is about getting our students to high school completion and creating a clear pathway to success beyond graduation.
