Who Should Enroll? ​


Any student with a keen interest and aptitude in a particular subject discipline, who thrives when given an opportunity to reach a higher level of understanding. It is highly recommended that a student have a pre-requisite grade of 80% or greater, and demonstrate proficiency in reading and comprehension. 

What is Different About It?


The honours progr​am completely covers all academic expectations of the Alberta Education curriculum in an environment where students are able to reach higher levels of thought and expression which enables them to demonstrate their best work. The combination of teachers questioning techniques and the quality of the responses from the students create an ideal learning environment where the scope and breadth of curricular expectations are maximized. Formative assessments will be tailored to meet the student’s deeper level of understanding of the prescribed learning outcomes. As a result, the students will gain a much deeper understanding of the curriculum and how it relates to other disciplines and real life experiences. 

How are They Assessed?


​As in all other streams, the honours program will use a combination of formative and summative assessment tools. Formative assessments will occur as the student is trying to achieve a deeper level of understanding of the concepts delivered in class. Summative assessments will occur once the student’s proficiency has been demonstrated and will be used to calculate a final grade that reflects the Alberta Education curricular outcomes.
