Next Step is a supportive, alternative senior high school for students who require a non-traditional, individualized program. We have 3 school sites – Sherwood Park, Fort Saskatchewan and Vegreville, Alberta. Next Step provides students with a safe and comfortable environment, flexible and individual schedules, an opportunity to take responsibility for their own education and to experience success, excellent teachers and support staff.
We currently have students from grades 7-12. Some of our students have no other choice for school because of expulsions, high risk lifestyles or mental health concerns that a traditional school cannot fully support. The care kits would help Next Step staff ensure that our students have access to basic needs so that they can be successful in school and achieve a higher education or career path.
