The EMCS Program Office, overseen by the EMCS Society and Sooke School District #62, was established in 1987 when Edward Milne Secondary School became a community school. Since that time, the staff have worked to provide education opportunities for people of all ages in the Sooke Region. We continue to grow and change with the needs of the community, and we hope that you will find programs and services that are both useful and timely.
