Off Campus

Off-campus programming (Work Experience, Green Certificate Program, and Registered Apprenticeship Program) allows students to earn high school credits while gaining valuable hands-on experience that will help them in careers after graduation.

All Off Campus programs have prerequisite course requirements (available with LRSD) and all programs require signed documentation and approval in writing. 

To apply for any of these programs and for more information, contact your school's Off Campus Coordinator.

Work Experience

Make the most of a part-time job or volunteering while in high school. Through Work Experience 15, 25, and 35, Grade 10-12 students can earn up to 15 high school credits while working or providing unpaid work, discover career interests and aptitudes, and increase their personal development and employability skills. Some pertinent guidelines for work experience include:

  • Prerequisite course: HCS3000 (Workplace Safety)
  • Students must be at least 15 years old and at least in grade 10
  • Retroactive hours towards credits are not permitted
  • All worksites are subject to approval by LRSD
  • An "Off Campus Agreement Form" must be signed by parents and the site supervisor (this form available after consultation with the school Off Campus Coordinator), before the work experience can start

Contact your Off Campus Coordinator or fill out this Google form expressing interest.

Green Certificate Program

The Green Certificate Program is a hands-on agricultural training program. Grade 10-12 students work and learn on the agricultural worksite under the direction of an experienced trainer, and can earn up to 16 credits toward graduation.
