Accelerated Math and Accelerated Science Programs

PROGRAM GOALS

The Accelerated Program is specifically designed for students who are academically capable of completing grades seven, eight, nine, and ten Mathematics and/or Science in a student’s junior high years. It provides students with the opportunity to pursue Math 10 Common and/or Science 10 in junior high school and earn high school credits. Course requirements are rigorous, and students are commonly required to spend more time working outside of class, than those students in the regular program.


ADMISSION CRITERIA

  1. Accomplish a standard of excellence achievement level on the Entrance Exam(s) based on the Grade 6 Learner outcomes and skills extending into the Grade 7 Math and/or Science curriculum learner outcomes. The exam consists of two parts: a calculator section and a non-calculator section.
  2. The student will have demonstrated an overall standard of excellence achievement in Math and/or Science in grade six according to the most recent report card.
  3. The student’s past report cards will indicate not only academic ability, but also strong organization and work habits.
  4. Potential students require a mature, positive attitude, exemplary classroom behavior and the ability to work independently.

 

The Learning Team Coordinators, Accelerated Math/Science teachers and the school administration will review each student’s application. Based on the ADMISSION CRITERIA, the top students will be chosen for the program. The primary determining factor is the Entrance Exam. 

CONTINUATION IN THE PROGRAM

Student performance and program recommendations will be reviewed regularly.  In order to ensure a student meets the Program of Studies learning requirements, any decision to have a student discontinue in the program will be made at the end of the school year. 

Students are only eligible to enter the program in the grade 7 year due to the organization and delivery of curricular outcomes.

REMOVAL FROM THE PROGRAM(S)
 

Students exhibiting behavior detrimental to their progress or the progress of other students may be required to move from the Accelerated Math and Accelerated Science Program to the regular program.
