Senior Integrated Program:
We promote potential
The Senior Integrated Program at Roland Michener Secondary School offers a non- diploma, Life Skills program for students aged 14-21. The goal of the program is to provide students with the most appropriate academic program with opportunities for building life skills necessary for their supported or independent living at home or in the community.
Students work on developing functional literacy and numeracy skills appropriate to their own level and interests. They also take non-credit courses which may include Phys. Ed, Art, Life Skills, Shop, Computers, Music, Transportation, and Drama to enhance their interests and learning.
Some students participate in regular secondary courses with alternative curriculum expectations as determined in the IEP. Courses may or may not be for credit, depending on the students ability. These courses may include Healthy Active Living, Art, Digital Photography, Integrated Technology and Essential Level English, Math and Science.
Independent Living Skills
Cooking, nutrition and menu planning, laundry, shopping, budgeting, social skills, and basic repair skills, are life skills students may work on as part of their Individual Education Plan.
Later in the program, some students may take work readiness courses to prepare them for a Co-operative education work placement and/or the College Vocational Certificate program at Northern College.
To develop social skills, students are given the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of community outings such as the Northern College Wheel Chair Rally, The Special Olympics Torch Run and the Tim Horton’s Camp Day. In addition, students enjoy in school activities, such as monthly birthday parties, Christmas and Halloween parties, Easter Idol, Spring Tea, and RMSS house league events. We are proud to have our own house team, “The Fox Hounds”
