Co-operative Education at Heights

We have the largest Co-operative Education Program in the Upper Grand District School Board. Our students are given the opportunity to join the work force in various placements which range from half day to full day sessions, 4 days a week for most of the semester.
The variety of employers has grown rapidly as the numbers in our courses increases yearly. These employers are found throughout the Guelph and surrounding area, as many of our students are bused in from as far away as the town of Erin. We offer placements to accomodate each and every student. Therefore, if students find it difficult to find transportation into Guelph for a full time placement, the placement may be located near that student's home area.
Come on out and see our program in action and see what we can do for you."

Our Mission: The Mission of The Phoenix Project

The Mission of The Phoenix Project, as a broadbased community partnership, is to improve the employability skills of students through co-operative involvement of school, business, industry, and community. College Heights and its partners are determined to ensure the best possible futures for the students who participate in the projects provided.

To develop curriculum, programs, and partnerships that will provide students with opportunities in technological fields. The vision and mission will be implemented into College Heights through the Five Guiding Principles.

Our Five Guiding Principles:
To foster a healthy start in adolescent/adult life.
To provide ongoing, positive relationships with caring adults.
To enable positive and meaningful experiences within a safe environment.
To develop marketable skills to foster employability.
To offer a chance to give back through community service."
