School Within a College (SWAC)

What is School Within a College (SWAC)?

High school students can complete their Ontario Secondary School Diploma on a Georgian College campus (Barrie, Midland, South Georgian Bay). Students will take a dual credit, one common high school course as a class and will complete their remaining credits through independent learning, on-line courses, credit recovery or co-operative education.

Although the SWAC students follow the board's school year calendar, they will be considered part-time college students and their schedule will be similar to a college schedule.
