Options and Opportunities
Options and Opportunities, most often referred to as O2, is a program designed to help students work toward a career pathway in a context that responds to their learning needs. Students are supported with learning opportunities where they develop skills and make connections to the workplace, post-secondary institutions, and training programs that assist with transitioning to new environments beyond high school. Students enrolled in O2 will develop the competencies and skills needed to prepare them for a lifetime of transitions and learning.
The O2 program is a three-year program that is unique to Nova Scotia public schools. The purpose is to provide flexibility to provide students with community connections and authentic learning experiences based on their interests. The O2 program has a maximum cohort of 20 students who must enter in grade 10.
