Outreach Alternative Secondary School is a school in its own right, located on the Maple Ridge Secondary School grounds. Under the umbrella of Outreach Alternate Secondary School are two alternate programs: Outreach, and Journey.
Outreach is an academic alternative to regular high school serving students needing flexibility and new opportunities. Outreach offers a limited graduation program for students from grade 10-12. Courses are a mix of independent studies and classes which you must attend. With work done at home as well as at school, two courses should be completed every 12 weeks. There is a limited Dogwood graduation program. To be considered for the program, you must be 16 to 19 years old at the date of application, demonstrate a strong desire to return to school and the motivation to work independently.

Journey is an alternative program designed for students who have average or better ability but are not coping with their regular classes due to poor attendance, social/emotional difficulties, or behavioural problems. Students are referred to the School Based Team and selected as space and need arise. Self-paced and teacher-led instruction is offered in core areas and supported by teaching assistance. A Youth Care Worker provides support for home/family situations and elective courses.
