The College Readiness Program is designed to validate cultural aspirations and identity, and motivate academic excellence. This program utilizes a cooperative project-based curriculum approach, rather than a textbook and test method. Students engage in real world projects of benefit to the larger community. Learning is "hands on" as much as possible. Past learning projects include publishing an Okanagan photo-history book of horse, ranch, and rodeo history; production of children's videos adapted from traditional stories (from script writing to video editing), and other culturally and socially relevant learning activities.

BC ADULT GRADUATION DIPLOMA COMPLETION PLAN: The courses that need to be completed for the Diploma include: ENGL 060 or ENGL 12/English 12 First Peoples; and MATH 057 or 059 or MATH 11; and Three additional qualifying courses at the provincial (Grade 12) level or higher, OR INST 050 and two provincial (Grade 12) level or higher qualifying courses.
