Pope Francis Centre

Supervised Alternative Learning

Supervised Alternative Learning Plan(SALP) is used to encourage students who are at risk of not graduating to continue their education in an alternative manner. Students who are not attending school regularly are encouraged

to apply to a SALP along with parental/guardian support. The goal of the SALP is to re-engage students to work towards their secondary school diploma and graduate with their peers.


Students between the ages of 14-17 years who require a Supervised Alternative Learning Plan to maintain a connection to learning may access the Pope Francis Centre as a part of their alternative schedule. A variety of supports are provided to students participating in a SALP.


Students under a SALP will maintain regular contact through Niagara Catholic’s Stay in School Coordinator.
