The Open Doors program is intended to deliver a holistic approach to education reflected of the Ontario Catholic Graduate Expectations. This limited enrolment program is tailored to increase student achievement and increase credit accumulation while taking a restorative approach to suspensions, through an in-school reflection center. By taking an experiential approach, the program will match curriculum expectation to tasks making partial credit accumulation possible. Students need to develop responsibility, independent work, initiative, organization, collaboration and self-regulation skills in the academic environment. When students have an absence of one or more of these competencies, the potential for escalating behaviour problems increase. This program is a proactive strategy to keep students engaged in school.
