Attending School at New Beginnings

Attending School at New Beginnings

New Beginnings is a part of the Bakerview Centre for Learning, which is attached to the Abbotsford School District.

Whether a student has graduated or not, courses do not have a fee. New Beginnings’ students have the opportunity to choose several options for completion of their grade 12 education.

A student who has graduated can take courses to upgrade for a post-secondary education. Our classroom consists of one full-time teacher and one educational assistant.

Dogwood Diploma

Students have the opportunity to complete a full course selection at New Beginnings. Included in this is the chance to graduate with a Dogwood Diploma.

Adult Graduation

This secondary school completion program is shorter and oriented for students over 19 years of age. Students will come away with a designated Adult Graduate diploma.

Indigenous Students

New Beginnings has a number of students from different First Nations. We provide an opportunity for Indigenous students to connect with and explore aspects of their Indigenous heritage with a First Nations Support Worker from the Bakerview Centre.
