What is S​TEAM?

The Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics program has been developed for students who enjoy and excel in the subject areas of mathematics and science and who 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 distinguishes this program from the regular academic stream.
STEAM students will be enrolled in enriched level congregated mathematics and science courses in grades 9 and 10. Students will also take a technology course (robotics) in grade 9. To qualify for the STEAM Program Certificate, students will complete 4 additional mathematics, science, or technology courses in their grade 11 and 12 years.

  • Inquiry based classroom experiences and reach ahead opportunities that enrich student learning
  • Opportunities for interdisciplinary studies within science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and English courses
  • An all-girls environment is ideal for fostering the love of mathematics, science and technology
