Early in September, an introductory session will be held for students who have been identified gifted through the Identification, Placement and Review Committee process. This opening session will introduce students to gifted learning at the secondary level. Information sessions promote the enrichment of academic and personal pursuits.


Students will meet regularly during each semester both on an individual basis and in group sessions with a Facilitator of the Gifted Program. Individualized, differentiated learning will be explored to meet each student’s needs. Sessions are brief and informative in order to avoid missing valuable instructional time. An Individual Education Plan will be formulated that focuses on skill development. As early as Grade 9, students will be introduced to scholarship planning and goal setting. This will continue through to graduation.

Our program offers a myriad of opportunities such as educational conferences, workshops, simulations, field trips, competitions and symposiums that are geared toward the development of key skills.
