Carleton Place Open House

December 13, 2019 (Carleton Place, ON) – The TR Leger School of Adult, Alternative and Continuing Education hosted an Open House Thursday, Dec. 12 at its Carleton Place campus.

The event showcased the campus and its high school and adult programming.

“We wanted the community to know that our programs can change lives,” says TR Leger Principal Sandy McInnes. “Our programs offer a second chance. They help high school students and adults obtain their Ontario Secondary School Diploma or strengthen their resume to find employment. They can study on a schedule that fits their needs and the diploma TR grants is exactly the same as any mainstream school.”

The campus is located at 350 Edmond Street in Carleton Place. It offers “one stop shopping” for a variety of programming, says McInnes. Programs showcased at the event included the Skills Training and Employment Preparation program (STEP), Adult Education, and our high school programming.

The STEP program allows adults to study relevant occupational courses so they can secure a job. The school offers courses such as its call centre program, daycare worker program, and materials handler program. When completed, students earn a certificate they can list on their resume.

The Adult Education Program permits adults who did not attain a high school diploma the flexibility to earn one online, on their own schedule. Adults can gain credits for their life experiences through the Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition Program (PLAR) - drastically shortening the amount of credits required to attain a diploma.

“With PLAR, the road to your diploma is much shorter than you think,” stressed McInnes. “People don’t realize how the work world can qualify you for a fast-track on getting your diploma. People have worked hard for that experience and they should benefit from it.”

High school students looking for an alternative to mainstream classes can benefit from the self-directed course structure at TR Leger to earn their diploma and set the stage for a successful future.
