    School-College-Work Initiative

School-College-Work Initiative

  • The School-College-Work Initiative (SCWI) is a program that encompasses three programs that offer high school students a chance to immerse themselves in college curriculum prior to completing high school.

    The three programs offered through SCWI are:

  • Dual Credit Program


    The Dual Credit Program is an exciting opportunity for high school students to try our college for free.

    High school students enroll in a college course that will count towards both their O.S.S.D. as well as a future post-secondary diploma or certificate programs. Dual credit courses allow high school students to explore their areas of interest and help shape their future educational goals.

    How to Register

    To register for one of the many course offerings available, students must apply through their high school guidance counsellor.

  • School Within a College Program


    The School Within a College program (SWAC) gives students an opportunity to complete their O.S.S.D. at Lambton College.

    Students enroll as full-time high school students but complete their courses in the college environment. They also get to explore post-secondary programs by taking part in the Dual Credit program.
