How to Apply

Schools interested in Turning Points can contact us at dual.credit@sait.ca for more information about the program.

Students interested in youth foundations studies should contact their career practitioner, high school counselor, or off-campus coordinator.

The selection of high school students for youth foundations programs is determined by each school board. School boards will take into account different criteria, such as attendance, ability to commit to the program, and if the student is on track to complete any other classes.

School boards will provide prospective high school students with deadlines for program application and registration. Once selected by the school board, students will need to register for the youth foundations program with SAIT.

Students who have successfully been selected to participate in youth foundations studies will receive detailed information about the registration and orientation processes.
