Congratulations to our new incoming grade 8 students. See you in September!
The International Business and Technology Program extends the Ontario Secondary School curriculum to provide students with opportunities to develop the technological, business, and soft skills essential for success in today's rapidly changing world. The content and delivery of the IBT Program is unique. Students are immersed in learning activities which develop essential skills, including those of problem-solving, communication, and leadership. At the same time, competency in vital technological and business skills is addressed. For example, students solve real-world problems through the use of popular business-oriented software in grade nine, and apply theoretical business knowledge to run their own small businesses in grade ten. The IBT Program provides all students various opportunities to learn and succeed, both in and out of class, effectively maximizing each student's potential. The skills and knowledge attained while in the program will be of lifelong benefit.
The Graphic Design Management Program offers students a wide variety of career pathways related to graphic design, fashion, architecture, photography, video, game design, and architecture. Students take two years of foundational courses in art and design and then specialize in grade 11 and 12 in the area of their choice in order to prepare post-secondary portfolios
The Secondary High Skills Major Program is a Ministry of Education initiative that prepares students for post-secondary careers in either Hospitality or Non-Profit. Students participate in conferences, certificate training, and create portfolios for workplace, college, or university programs.
