Our unique approach focuses on an adolescent's long-term development. Our youth are referred to us by the teachers, guidance counselors and principals from our five feeder schools, all in high priority neighborhoods in Toronto.

  • Lawrence Heights Middle School
  • Pierre Laporte Middle School
  • Portage Trail Community School
  • Taylor Creek Public School (formerly Warden Avenue Public School)
  • Beverley Heights Middle School

Our schools are selected by using the Toronto District School Board's Learning Opportunities Index (LOI). The LOI ranks each school based on the measures of external challenges affecting student success.  The LOI measures relative need and compares all schools on exactly the same set of data collected.  The LOI assists with steering additional resources to the schools serving students who face greater challenges.
