Regional Learning Choices Programs (RLCP) empower students by providing an opportunity to develop and explore skills in a particular area of interest. The Peel board offers 17 Regional Learning Choices Programs:
It's important to note, also, that students in the Elementary Regional Learning Choices Program– grades 6, 7 or 8 – will not automatically be accepted into the same program for high school. They must apply to the Secondary RLCP in the same way all other students are applying, and participate in the same assessment process.

Applicants are offered space in a Regional Learning Choices Program based on a two-step process:
Once students have been offered all available spaces in a specific Regional Learning Choices Program, the remaining students will be placed on the school's waitlist. Each school has its own waitlist.
The Peel District School Board has a commitment to equity and inclusion for all. As such, based on a process of self-identification, admission to regional programs will reflect the need to address historically and statistically significant disproportionalities in enrollment as per student census data, ensuring equitable representation of African, Black, First Nations, Inuit and Métis students.
All African, Black, First Nations, Inuit and Métis students who self-identify and meet the criteria for admission will be accepted into the program without participating in the random selection process.
Offers must be accepted through the Peel board's online application website. To find out when offers will be made, visit the RLCP-Elementary or RLCP-Secondary pages.

All regional programs include a non-refundable application fee and an annual program fee. Annual fees are specific to the program. All fees must be paid through the board's online application website. Once a program is accepted, the amount owing is recalculated (the program fee is added to the cart) and the applicant will be able to pay online using the pay now button.
Applicants who may require assistance or have any questions about the application fees are requested to speak with the principal directly.
For support in processing your payment, please contact School Day at [email protected], or follow these instructions to submit a support ticket.

Transportation is not provided for students in regional programs. If students have been accepted into a regional program and they live within the school boundary, they are eligible for busing only if they meet the distance criteria outlined in Policy 39 - Transportation.
Some programs are supported by parent-funded school bus transportation. This is a fee-based service that is contracted directly between parents and a third-party company. Please note, neither the school nor Peel board is involved with this agreement. All aspects of safety, insurance, licensing, communications, fees, applications, service complaints, student behaviour and pick-up/drop-off locations are the responsibility of such third-party bus company.
For specific program information and for all inquiries regarding fees and the status of applications, contact the school that offers the Regional Learning Choices Program of interest.
