Murray McKinnon Foundation is aligned with the education goals and principles of the Ministry of Children and Youth Services. We have long standing partnerships with Durham District School Board (Grove School) and Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board to provide alternative educational opportunities for young men and women residing at the Murray McKinnon House, Harold McNeill House Supportive Reintegration Residence, Oakwood House, or participating in the programs at the McKinnon Attendance Centre (MAC) and the Ajax Learning Centre.
Young men and women will receive education plans that are youth centred, adaptable to respond to their unique lived experiences/interests and cultural backgrounds. Teachers and classroom youth workers work collaboratively with community agencies, school boards and colleges to promote an integrated service delivery and successful school transitions.
Young men and women will have access to individualized educational programming utilizing student success strategies such as: credit recovery/completion; dual credits; inter-disciplinary/cross-curricular approaches; blended/eLearning courses; Co-op; plus, Prior Learning Assessment Recognition (PLAR).
Young men and women may be given opportunity to attend school programs in the community. They will be supported with their academic programs.
