The Algoma Education Connection (AEC) includes students enrolled in Urban Aboriginal, Teen Parenting Program, Sault College Connection and Prince Charles Secondary School. AEC currently has a total enrolment of 280 students. These programs are still enrolling students and the numbers may change, due also in part to the Board’s Re-engagement Strategy.
