In addition to the wide variety of regular programs, Agincourt offers E.S.L., Special Education and French programs, and Co-operative Education as they prepare to enter the world of work. The school body has a strong sense that students can help other students through mentoring, student tutoring, and peer helping. Senior students can apply to act as teaching assistants.
