This program is aimed at Grade 8 through 12 students. The purpose of the visit is to provide an experience that covers many aspects of the curriculum. This will be done by treating the students as though they are moving in, prepared to attend University. It will include the concept of preparing for and maintaining part time employment that is most often necessary during student life. The goal is for each student to be exposed to young adult realities and begin to consider how their actions today affect their life in the future.
