We ensure our students remain current with the rapidly changing digital spectrum by offering classes fully online & blended (online support for face-to-face classes). We fuse Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics learning together through our STEM program, complemented by a mandatory computer programming course, a complete Wi-Fi environment, and Chromebooks for our grade 9 and 10 students.

Our inclusive community provides students with a safe environment to take risks, explore ideas and challenge themselves. We encourage students to nurture and develop their skills as leaders through our leadership courses, student council and numerous extra-curricular clubs and activities.

Experiential Learners

Driven by our Specialist High Skills Major, Bike, and Cooperative education programs, CTA has brought experiential learning to the forefront of all classes by partnering with numerous industry professionals and organizations. By putting theory into practice, students are deeply engaged in the material they are studying and gain a lasting academic experience
