AlgomaU program prepares Indigenous students to transition into university


Algoma University’s Brampton campus and the Peel District School Board have partnered to launch the Learners Early Access Program (LEAP). PDSB Grade 11 and 12 students who take part in LEAP can pursue university courses at AlgomaU, while also completing their high school classes on campus. The program prioritizes Indigenous, Black, and equity-deserving groups from high schools in Mississauga with the goal of helping the students become more comfortable with the postsecondary environment. “We know many of these students will be the first in their family to go to university”and we know that the first is rarely the last,” said AlgomaU President Asima Vezina.
