Our four-term approach to the academic year has dramatic benefits for our students.
Enrolling in only two courses per term, as opposed to a more traditional semester or full-year setting of four to eight courses at a time, allows our students to balance their academic workload and pursue non-academic interests more effectively.
Two-hour class blocks mirror the lecture model of most universities, while also providing time for in-depth study, experiential learning, and ongoing individual attention from teachers. In our small classes, students have the opportunity to identify the learning strategies that work for them, preparing them to independently manage their postsecondary studies.
Our guidance counsellors work weekly with each senior student to ensure they achieve their academic potential. Students are encouraged to identify their passions through proper course selection, and to actualize their goals by completing courses based on their individual post-secondary pathway plan. We provide regular guidance for parents and students throughout the university and scholarship application processes.
