Grade 11 and 12 Niagara Catholic students interested in careers in healthcare or in early childhood education will soon have the opportunity to gain two college credits while still in high school. The board was recently approved for two new programs through the School College Work Initiative with Niagara College. Both programs are offered with an introductory Psychology course. Communications in Healthcare 1 supports students interested in a career in health care with written communication. Foundations of ECE 1 introduces students to the foundations of play-based learning and the principles of Early Childhood Education, including the roles of an Early Childhood Educator.
