Welcome to Avery Outreach School
“Providing students with safe, positive, diverse learning opportunities”
Avery Outreach School offers an alternate education centre for students in grades 10-12. Avery Outreach School is comprised of three high school classrooms that can physically accommodate up to 18 students at a time. Each classroom has a full-time teacher and a full-time educational assistant to support student learning. Counseling support is also available.
Avery Outreach School offers correspondence based programming where students work independently on one academic course at a time. Option courses such as Art, Food Studies, and P.E. are also offered to students attending full-time. Programming is based on the individual needs of the student and success is dependent on the effort of the student.
Way to go Avery students and staff!
And a big thank you to Alberta Beverage Container Recycling Corporation!!!

Message to students
Hello Avery Students,
We have missed seeing your faces in the halls and doorways of our school and have missed our morning chats and afternoon coffees. You may be feeling a range of emotions around everything that has gone on over the last month and we wanted to reach out to let you know that we are still available for counselling support; whether it be video chat, phone chat, email or text. A situation such as this has never been seen before and it is so important that we do our best to be there for one another. We can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com if you would like to connect.
We are also considering continuing with Coffee Talks in a virtual group setting. They would be held on Monday afternoons. If you are interested, please let us know.
