Discover College before Leaving High School
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 a great way for high school students to try college for free while experiencing the full classroom experience at Lambton College.
High school students enroll in a college course that counts toward both their O.S.S.D. and their post-secondary diploma or certificate. This program allows students to explore areas of interest to help shape their future educational goals.
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 are also able to explore post-secondary programs by taking part in the Dual Credit program.
