Dear Students and
Between March 22 and
March 27, 4,500 staff from high school settings provincewide will receive a
COVID-19 vaccination at a clinic in one of several locations.
Staff participating in
the vaccination roll-out include all those who work in a high school setting. Schools will be closed to students on the
days that local clinics are being held to allow for school staff to be
vaccinated and to plan for the full return of high school students to schools
where a blended learning environment currently exists.
This letter is to
inform you that Enterprise will be closed on Wednesday, March 24, to
allow staff to participate in a high-school-prioritized clinic as scheduled by
Thank you for your
patience and understanding as we work through this. By adding these layers of
protection to the previous “Return to School” plan, we further minimize the
risks of transmitting the virus when all students are back for the rest of the
2020-21 school year on April 12.
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.

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.
