Stay in School Program

The Stay in School Award program recognizes elementary and high school students who are doing exceptionally well in school given their extremely difficult personal circumstances and encourages them to complete high school and pursue a post-secondary education by providing tools and motivation for their success.

Awards are given for perseverance, attendance, improved grades and transitions from special education to general or advanced classes.

In grade 8 I began receiving ‘Stay in School’ awards through Scotiabank and Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada. All through high school they were a consistent reminder that someone out there was pulling for me.
