What are Intake Meetings?

The intake meeting is an opportunity for students, parents and guardians to meet staff and learn more about our program. It is also an opportunity for staff to learn more about the student and their needs. If staff believes that the Triangle Program is an appropriate space for the student’s academic success,  guardians/youth will be notified 5-10 business days after an intake meeting, and a registration date will be set to complete the paperwork.

If accepted into the Triangle Program we will need copies of the documents listed below in the Fall, and a few forms will need to be completed.

  1. Birth certificate
  2. OHIP card
  3. Proof of address (e.g. Phone Bill, Drivers license)
