​​​​Goal Oriented Alternative Learning is an alternate educational program jointly offered by School District #43 and the Ministry of Children and Family Services. The class offerings are equivalent to the core and elective offerings found in other B.C. high schools. All courses offered at GOAL comply with Ministry of Education standards and are officially recognized. 


Mission Statement

At GOAL, Teachers and Youth Workers support the academic and social/emotional well-being of students. We aim to provide an inclusive learning environment as a pathway to graduating and to becoming engaged citizens. 

"I really like's a good learning environment and you get a lot of one on one help from the staff."

Why Attend GOAL?

GOAL is a transition program, where students can re-engage in their schooling, and work with staff to get back on track with their education.  The GOAL Program is a part-time program that allows students to work a their own pace, build their confidence, and be part of a small community of learners.  No matter where or how the student has left the schooling process, GOAL welcomes them back. GOAL is a transitional school that offers a high staff-to-student ratio, counselling and behavioural support in addition to instruction that adapts provincial curriculum to meet individual needs. 

"We work at our own pace, allowing us to go through the year at our own speed."

Who Can Attend GOAL?

GOAL is a program intended to serve the educational and social needs of those youth who have become involved with Youth Probation, who have come into difficulty in other regular or alternate school settings, or who have been without formal schooling for a significant period of time. The typical candidate wishes to "transition back" into either the regular or alternate school setting. 

"The program really helped me get back on track...and return to a mainstream school."

 In Addition, Students are:

  • able to gain work experience and skills required to enter the workforce.
  • supplied with all needed materials (pens, paper, textbooks, and binders)
  • provided with ongoing "after hours" support through GOAL youth workers
  • provided with opportunities to participate in volunteer activities​
  • provided access to career and employment counselling, assistance in resume writing, and support in job searching 

"GOAL is a very good place to come learn, make new friends, and have fun!"
