The Specialist High Skills Major- Environment Program is based upon an experiential learning model where students will experience learning opportunities in a variety of outdoor settings such as canoeing, mountain biking, cross-country skiing, backpacking, winter camping and high ropes activities. Students will develop leadership skills and build confidence through hands-on activities, certifications, team leadership and multi-day trips. Students will be exposed to post-secondary programs and career possibilities within the field, and will acquire the knowledge and skills needed to work in the outdoors.
Our location at the edge of Algonquin Provincial Park, the partnerships with local businesses and the abundance of natural spaces in our region, makes AHSS an ideal location for offering the Environment- Outdoor Education SHSM.
