NGINDAASMIN—Academic Upgrading Program

We offer academic upgrading and academic supports from Monday to Friday from 9 AM to 4 PM. We provide school supplies, the GED manual and TTC tokens if needed. This program has proven to be a success for the Aboriginal people that have enrolled in it. Earning your diploma leads to opportunities in post-secondary programs, training and job opportunities.

The Ngindaasmin Academic program is an upgrading program for those that want to earn their Ontario Secondary School Diploma. What makes this upgrading program unique is that the students have the
opportunity to learn about who they are as First Nations people: the history, treaties and traditions of the Anishnawbek. The course is designed to bring about an understanding of the complex issues facing First Nations people in Canada. Another major highlight of the program is having volunteer tutors on site and they are an invaluable program resource.
