Academy of Academic Upgrading
This academy profiles Nutana’s strength in offering programming to students who wish to complete Grade 12, upgrade their previous marks, or pick up a class that they require for post-secondary training.
· Students take only two classes at a time and complete each course in just ten weeks.
· Students can register for classes four times each school year - September, November, January and April.
· Teachers strive to provide learning experiences that are distinctly different than traditional programs.
· Support from teachers and tutors are available outside of class time.
· Over fifty percent of our students are over the age of 18 and choose Nutana because of its comfortable adult atmosphere.
· Students over the age of 22 are most welcome to attend but will be required to pay tuition.
Services Available to Students
· The Student Services office provides support services to students in the following areas:
· School registration and records
· Academic program information, preliminary assessment and planning
· Personal relationship and crisis counseling for students and parents
· Post-secondary education and career information and counseling
· Referrals to support services within the school and community
· Students can make arrangements to meet their teachers at 8:30 each morning if they wish extra assistance.
· Regularly scheduled noon hour tutoring sessions are also available.
CanSask (Career and Employment Services)
· An on site CanSask Career Consultant provides students with up to date information, services and resources so that they are better
prepared to develop a career path and to pursue their goals.
· Students can also access information on post-secondary training programs.
· Information and support in finding a job is available as well.
· iJob, a new and innovative career resource, is designed to support youth to be successful in making the school to work transition.
· Nutana and SIAST have a working agreement designed to assist students to make a successful transition into programming at Kelsey.
Re-Entry and Support Program
· Students are provided with material and activities designed to review fundamental skills or to provide enrichment to support success
in their classroom courses.
· Course material is divided into packages so that students can work at their own pace.
Nutana Extension Resource Re-Entry Venture (NERRV)
· This is an afternoon program designed to provide alternatives for students who benefit from non-traditional curriculum delivery.
· Students have the opportunity to work semi-independently on curriculum modules, finish courses from a previous quarter, or receive
instruction in small groups.
Resource Room Program
· Students learn how to study, take notes, proofread, be organized, manage their time and write exams.
· The Resource Room teacher also works with classroom teachers to adapt curriculum, instruction and evaluation in order to meet
the needs of individual students.
I have found the quarter system to be a very effective way to learn
while maintaining a full-time job. If you show up for class and do your work,
you will be successful.
