Welcome to Gary Allan High School. Gary Allan High School is a place of innovation and opportunity. We are a school that oversees a wide range of Adult, Adolescent and Continuing Education Programs within the Halton Region, serving over 13,000 students each year, between the ages of 4 to 90 years of age.

Gary Allan High School Continuing Education Programs includes programs from early childhood through to adulthood including our International Languages Elementary Program, Elementary Summer School, Secondary Summer School, eLearning, Night School, Robotics, International Travel, and our Skilled Trades Pre-Apprenticeship Program. Programs are offered throughout the Halton Region in the four communities of Burlington, Oakville, Milton and Halton Hills and each program is designed to provide unique and innovative learning opportunities to all students within the Halton region.

Our Gary Allan High School Day School Program serves over 2,000 adult and adolescent students throughout the school year and is housed in multiple sites across the region. The Day School provides continuous entry, individualized, self-paced learning opportunities for students, and the programs progress from the SCORE program for 14 & 15 year olds who may need the greatest amount of teacher support and direction, to our Self-Reliant Learning Program in which students have the greatest level of independence and flexibility. Alternative program opportunities for our adolescent students include the Bronte Creek Project (Outdoor Education) and our Trades Exploration Program (TREX) allowing students to participate in unique and engaging learning experiences, as they successfully complete their high school diploma. Adult students who may be working towards high school completion, entering the workplace or an apprenticeship, applying to university or college, or learning new skills to make a career change can access credit programs any time throughout the day from early in the morning to late into the evening, on any day of the week, adjusting their schedule and timetable based on their individual learning needs. The innovative use of technology including online learning opportunities enhance and support the learning experiences of our day school students and the caring and individualized learning setting provided by our exemplary teaching staff allows our many students to thrive and achieve success.

I am very proud to be part of a longstanding tradition of providing alternative and innovative programming at Gary Allan High School. We welcome your enquiries about our many program options, and would be very pleased to speak with you to answer any questions that you may have.

Together, we will do whatever it takes to inspire, empower and support your journey to success.

Tara Connor, Ed.D.
