The Independent Living Program focuses on developing life skills following an alternative curriculum. The curriculum is aimed at building skills in the following areas: communication, social skills, self-regulation, functional academics (literacy and numeracy), activities of daily living, motor skills and experiential learning.   For more information, please contact Shannon MacCharles


Students in Monarch Park's Independent Living Program focus on developing life skills. They learn to safely navigate in the wider school community and build experiential learning skills. The program works to consolidate these skills with a focus on building targeted employability skills that meet the needs of our students.  We work with several community partners such as Special Olympics and the Rick Hanson Foundation.  We are always looking for additional community partners and inclusion opportunities. We are looking forward to starting our work with Jays Care when we start Challenger Baseball in the spring. 

Here is some of the work from our students
