STEM - Science, Technology , Engineering  & Math

STEM @ Libermann is a prestigious program for students in the Academic/University stream who enjoy and excel in the Mathematics, Science, Technology and English and 21st Century fluencies.

STEM courses are grounded in a rigorous-based curriculum and incorporates unique opportunities for enrichment and differentiated instruction.  Students travel as a cohort in Grades 9, 10 and 11 in the core STEM courses and work collaboratively on many school-based assignments and community-based activities.​

Students who successfully complete the requirements of the STEM Program from grades 9-12, will be awarded the Francis Libermann C.H.S - STEM  Program Certificate and Medal at the Graduation Ceremony.

STEM students move as a cohort (grades 9-11) in the following classes:

  • STEM Grade 9:  MPM1D2, SNC1D2, TGJ102, ENG1D2
  • STEM Grade10: MPM2D2, SNC2D2, ICS3U2, ENG2D2
  • STEM Grade11: MCR3U2, (SBI3U2 or SCH3U2 or SPH3U2),  (TGJ3M2 or ICS4U2), ENG3U2
  • ​STEM Grade12: Students do NOT travel as a cohort but must complete at least two credit courses in Mathematics, Science, Technology and English.
Please Note:
*STEM students are expected to maintain a minimum of 70% on each of the STEM courses.  Failure to achieve 70% may result in withdrawal from the STEM program.
*STEM students must take ALL STEM courses or they will be withdrawn from the STEMprogram.
*Once students withdraw from the STEM program, they are no longer eligible for STEM courses and/or the Francis Libermann C.H.S STEM Program Certificate and must complete OSSD graduation requirements.

STEM & FIT Certificates (Graduation)
Students who successfully complete all four years (14 credits) in the STEM program will receive a STEM CERTIFICATE and STEM Medal at Graduation Ceremony.  Most STEM students who have taken grade 11 and 12 Computer Science receive FIT certificates in Software Design and Development.
