About the GPL Program
The Gibsons Pathfinder Lab (GPL) Program offers a self-paced, independent learning environment using both computer and paper-based programs for students in grades nine to twelve. The program also offers creative opportunities to advance personal growth and self-exploration through community fine arts programs, a community fitness program and career preparation seminars. These programs allow students the opportunity for flexible scheduling to meet the studentsí individual educational, emotional and/or behavioural needs. The students, in consultation with the staff, create their own
academic program within the B.C. Ministry of Education curricular guidelines.
