The Enhanced Academic Program is an academically focussed program that is designed to help prepare students who may be interested in pursuing the Advanced Placement Program at the high school level. Students can enter into this program at any grade level at Cardinal Leger. Instruction is offered in the four core subjects of English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies. Students follow the regular Alberta curriculum but do so at a faster pace which allows students to go into more depth through additional project work which allows them to apply their knowledge. Students need to not only be strong academic learners but also need to be self-motivated for their educational success, and be able to work well with others. Typically, students coming from elementary should be achieving at the level of “exemplary” in all subjects. For students who are already in junior high, the expectation is that marks are at a minimum of 75% or higher.
