Second Year School Curriculum
In January 2012, Fort Vancouver premieres a Second Year School program that merges the Dame and Young Engagé School pathways together. Combined into one large class, Dame and Young Engagé School graduates continue training on one Saturday a month in winter and spring.
Both first year programs ensure that students grasp a solid understanding of the Hudson's Bay Company (HBC) era at Fort Vancouver. The second year program exposes students to what came after the HBC, expands on how research and archaeology are integral to the story of the park, and of course, features many more hands-on skills, such as medicine, watercolor, and storytelling.
The second year program is available to students who have successfully completed Dame School or Young Engagé School.
