Accelerated Mathematics and Science Programs
Beginning in the 2021-2022 school year, St. Hilda’s is excited to announce the commencement of our Accelerated Math and Accelerated Science Programs. The programs will offer a rigorous, thorough, and specialized focus in Mathematics and Science, and is designed for students who have a love for learning, appreciate challenge and who have a strong work ethic.
Our programs will be offered to incoming grade 7 students in September and will continue to expand by a grade each year as the students progress through grade 8 and 9. Students have the opportunity to enroll in both programs, or simply one of the two.
After graduating our 3-year program, successful students will have completed the junior high curriculum and have completed the equivalent of Math 10C and/or Science 10. Successful students will receive high school credit upon completion of their designated program. Completing high school courses sooner will give the students the ability to pursue other courses, free up another spare or two in high school, or to retake Math 10C and Science 10 with a comprehensive understanding and curricular confidence to achieve even higher grades.
Within the three years, students will learn more curricular content at a quicker pace. The diagram below depicts an example of the educational pace students can expect.
As Alberta curriculum follows a spiral education, students will have the opportunity to consistently review and fine tune their understanding of the learning objectives. Students in grade 9 will continue to write the Math and Science Provincial Achievement Tests in grade 9, giving them an intellectual advantage.
Prospective students will need to meet entrance requirements and successfully complete an entrance exam to make sure that our Accelerated programs is a right fit for your child.
St. Hilda’s Accelerated Math and Science Programs are being limited to 33 students. Do not let this exciting opportunity to fast-track your child’s future fly by. Registration is already open.

Come soar with the Hawks,
Your St. Hilda Family
