Royal City Alternate Program

Royal City Alternate Program (RCAP) offers coursework in grade 8 and grade 9 and provides a transition to regular or alternate high school programs with social and emotional support in and outside of the classroom.

A Sense of Community

A sense of community is important at RCAP and is fostered through hot lunches, celebrations, field trips, fun activities, and our P.E., yoga, and hockey.

Caring, qualified teachers deliver B.C. Ministry of Education curriculum, with supports when necessary.

Classes start at 9:15 a.m., Monday to Friday, and have a maximum of 15 students.聽 Grading and assessment are individualized and our students progress at their own pace within a full classroom experience. At RCAP we have:

  • Youth Care Worker on site
  • On-site counselling

A unique agreement system helps students who are trying to improve their attendance, punctuality, or productivity.聽 Three-way conferences occur 3 times per year with students and their parents/guardians, and by request.

RCAP provides a positive learning experience for those facing social and emotional challenges in school.

At RCAP, our School Learning Plan for 2023-2024 outlines our goals,
our strategies for reaching them, and the evidence for success.
