About the Program

Aboriginal Academic Access to Post-Secondary (AAAPs) is a program being held at the Mi’kmaw Native Friendship Centre in Halifax, in partnership with Mount Saint Vincent University. AAAPs is a new university access pilot program designed to support Aboriginal students in achieving their education and career goals. Made possible by funding from the Province of Nova Scotia, the program brings university courses and academic supports to students at the Friendship Centre to provide a solid foundation before students transition to their chosen university programs. During the program, students have the opportunity to explore and expand their academic interests and abilities.

This is an 8 month program, running from September to April. Courses will be held Monday-Thursday between the hours of 9-4, with a very similar style to the way a schedule would be as they transition into University (some days the courses may end at 2, some days they may not start until 10, etc.)
