The rationale of the course is to increase the rigor for our academic students in order to prepare them for post-secondary experiences in whatever field they chose. The course will focus on STEM with an Arts component included either through AP European History, 20th Century History, Social Justice, and Aboriginal Studies. The course’s intent is to ensure that students are more understanding of the requirements of Post-Secondary Schooling, what Post-Secondary has to offer, what requirements are necessary for various fields of study, and how they can access financial assistance via: scholarships, bursaries and work placements (co-ops, internships, research opportunities, learn abroad).
