The POWER Alternate Secondary School is a secondary school program in the New Westminster School District that has been in operation since 1992.  The program is open to all lower mainland students aged 16-18 and is conveniently located one block west of the New Westminster Skytrain Station.

POWER offers...

  • High School Graduation in a smaller supportive environment with flexible individualized schedules and timetables
  • Three terms per year, each with a different set of structured courses.  Equal semesters offer students a chance to focus on fewer courses each term, while still completing numerous courses in a school year
  • A sense of community through the sharing of breakfasts, lunches and celebration meals, as well as through various fun activities, events, field trip and outings
  • Bi-weekly meetings between student and teacher that fosters an understanding for individual circumstances and monitors attendance and progress
  • Personal therapeutic counselling, as well as, connections to external resources
  • Recognition Day - a celebration in July for all students who have completed courses and special recognition for graduates

At POWER Alternate Secondary School, education isn't done to you, but done with you!
