SIDES offers a number of dual credit opportunities for students who are interested in trades or an academic program.

SIDES belongs to the South Island Partnership (SIP). SIP offers tuition-free technical college programs and first-year academic college courses to eligible grade 10-12 students. Students will earn dual credit, meaning that they will earn credit toward graduation from secondary school at the same time as they are earning credit toward post-secondary programs. Students must meet prerequisites and ideally start the planning process in grade 9 or 10. Please note that students are responsible for a registration fee (approximately $40) and required textbook costs.

The first step is to contact the SIDES career teacher Rhiannon Cockayne at or 250 888 5669.
