The Enterprise Program
An Alternative Education Program
Provided by: Anglophone West School District
The Enterprise Program is for students ages 17-21 who may be at risk of dropping out of high school or who are not currently attending school. Students are referred to the program by the administration of their zoned high school. Students earn their high school diploma by working individually and at their own pace through the required academic credits.

The Program Offers:
A safe, quiet, relaxed environment conducive to learning.
Staff dedicated to employing a holistic approach to student learning and wellness.
A smooth transition into the world of work or post-secondary education.

Enterprise is located in Fredericton High School. The Centre follows the same school calendar as ASDW High Schools. Students attend half days.
The Enterprise Program’s curriculum is based upon the prescribed New Brunswick graduation requirements. Students utilize the same textbooks and materials, and meet the same curriculum outcomes as provincial high schools.
Students study math, english, science, social studies, technology, and personal development. The program consists of self-paced and self-directed academic programs facilitated by teachers who provide individual instruction.
All students are required to complete 150 hours of work experience. These hours are to be confirmed by each student’s former or present employer. The Enterprise Centre staff will review each student’s work experience status on an individual basis. Our staff will connect students to work experience and training programs as needed.
Completed applications will be accepted from ASDW administration once school-based interventions have occurred. All applications are to be submitted to the Education Centre electronically.
Applications will only be accepted for youth who are registered in an ASDW High School and are at least 17 years old.
Upon receipt of referral, students will be placed on a waiting list. When an opening in the program becomes available, students will be contacted for an intake meeting interview.
Upon completion of the program, students will receive a diploma from their respective high school issued by the Department of Education. The students’ transcript from The Enterprise Program is recognized by various colleges and educational institutions across the province. Graduates from the Enterprise Program may apply for any programs which call for a High School Diploma as the admission requirement. The Enterprise Centre conducts their own graduation ceremony in June where students will receive their diplomas.
