What happens to students that do not spend 4 years of high school at Ashbury for example those that join in their last 2 years? Do you/Ontario recognize community service gained away from Ontario and other experiences in grade 9/10 earned elsewhere like Europe? My son attended MUN conference in Harlem 2019, was part of Athletics team which competed within the DDODS League (American Dept of Defense schools in Europe League), and won Coach's award in 2019 and was camp counselor/English teacher in Spain for a summer camp. Can he import those experiences given he has evidence of the same?

We would look at each case individually in these cases. This is something we would review through our prior learning equivalency process.
