Classes Unique to TDChristian

  • Environmental Block. E-Block is a grade 10, two credit class that focuses on care for the earth, learning about government, citizen responsibility and action, and more. Students get their hands dirty exploring environmental issues, running the school's recycling program, working the community garden, cleaning up creeks, and more. Nearly half of the grade 10 class signs up for this popular block.

  • Internship Block. This block connects in-school learning with real world experience. For a full semester, students spend two days a week in an adult mentor's workplace in a career area of their choosing and the other three days at school with two teacher advisors and their fellow Internship Block students. The structure of the program allows students to take greater control over their own learning and gain meaningful experience exploring a career or service area they are considering for the future.
