Want to attend Learning Alternatives?...

Learning Alternatives serves students and families from across Nanaimo Ladysmith Public Schools.  Our school programs are designed to support students when their catchment area school has exhausted all the interventions they can offer.  Catchment school can complete the referral with students and families.

Students that have never been connected to a school in Nanaimo Ladysmith or have been out of school for an extended period of time can complete the referral.

Referrals and questions can be emailed directly to Learning Alternatives principal, Brett Hancock.
