External Sport Credit

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.

The Department of Education and Lifelong Learning is responsible for the External Credentials program and the Sport Credit Portion of this program is administered and monitored by Sport PEI. Only sports which are members of Sport PEI are eligible.
