Ashern Central School ~ Student-focused ~ Community-minded
It is our privilege to be part of each student’s journey, honouring where they come from, discovering who they are now, and preparing for who they want to be.
It is a source of pride for us to be able to offer a wide range of courses and opportunities to our students. Along with a full range of core academic courses, we offer French language, music, drama, visual arts, and foods and nutrition credits from grades 9 to 12. These programs are also part of our middle years’ options activities starting from grade 5. Our vocational and trades credits include woodworking, engineering, career and technology studies, high school apprenticeship program, and we offer a dual diploma program in Automotive Technology with students working in our fully equipped on-site automotive shop.
