1970’s: St. Clair Endorses Alternative Learning At Twin Valleys

As we continue to celebrate 50 years we’re taking a look back at some alternative learning…

In March 1972, St. Clair College announced an agreement to provide academic services to the recently inaugurated Twin Valleys School in Wardsville, Ontario.

Buildings were constructed by young people who were part of a Provincial Rehabilitation program launched in the late 1960’s to assist young people to lead productive lives in their community.

Students formed a community, built their own residences and learning facilities and raised their own food becoming rehabilitated through self-sufficiency.
