The External Sport Credit Program (ESCP) gives eligible student-athletes the opportunity to earn graduation credits in grades 10, 11 and 12. While described as a sport credit, it is an educational credit and therefore, learning is emphasized throughout the entire process of becoming a high-performance athlete.
