The GOALS Program is a system program with smaller classes for more targeted instruction, and is designed to meet the needs of students identified with mild cognitive (intellectual) disabilities. The focus of this program is to improve academic and independent living skills within a positive and supportive learning environment. Flexible and responsive instruction is guided by an Instructional Support Plan (ISP), builds on individual strengths and needs, and follows the Alberta Education Programs of Study, with adaptations or modifications as necessary. The GOALS program continues all the way through to High School, where students work towards a High School Certificate of Completion or a Certificate of High School Achievement (Knowledge and Employability) rather than a High School Diploma.
