An Enriching and Empowering Program for Young Women
 
 
What is the Mathematics, Science, and Technology Program?
 
The Math, Science, and Technology (MST) program was developed for students who enjoy and excel in the subject areas of Mathematics and Science and who would welcome the challenge of working in an enriched classroom environment with other like-minded students.  Students will meet Ministry curriculum requirements by working on interdisciplinary projects.  The depth, not quantity, of assigned work will distinguish this program from the regular academic stream. The MST  program will prepare students for post-secondary education in areas which offer diverse and challenging opportunities. Successful applicants will be enrolled in enriched level congregated Mathematics and Science courses in grades 9 and 10.  Students will also take a Technology course in Grade 9.  To qualify for the MST Program Certificate, students will complete 4 additional Mathematics, Science, or Technology courses.
