Some students learn better by doing, experimenting and practicing. Students enrolled in the Options and Opportunities Program, better known as O2, are able to do this by being engaged through active learning in their school as well as their community.

O2 is a three year program designed to help students work toward a career or occupation in learning contexts that respond to their learning needs, providing linkages to the workplace and other post-secondary destinations.
