We are known for our strong focus on science and technology. Our commitment to providing an innovative, challenging and hands-on science education has catapulted our students to remarkable achievements, high course completion rates and success in admission to post-secondary programs.

COURSE PATHWAYS

COURSE DESCRIPTIONS

Science 10 is a hands-on course that lays the groundwork for students to progress to Grade 11 science disciplines. Science 10 provides an overview of the biological, chemical, physical and earth sciences, as well as an awareness of the connections between them. A minimum mark of 65% in the previous science course completed is highly recommended. This course is also available at the AP level.

Science 14 and 24 are generalized courses that focus on applying science with hands-on activities and experiments. These courses allow students to meet the science credit requirements for an Alberta High School Diploma.

Science 20 and 30 explore many interesting hands-on activities to help students understand scientific concepts. Science 30 can serve as an entrance requirement for many post-secondary programs.

Biology 20 and 30 focus on the study of living systems through hands-on experiences including dissecting hearts and other specimens and building body maps. A minimum mark of 65% in the previous course is highly recommended. These courses are also available at the AP level.

Chemistry 20 and 30 examine matter and how it interacts on a molecular level. Students will study the properties and reactions of chemicals and learn skills such as titrating acids and measuring the molar mass of butane. A minimum mark of 65% in the previous course is highly recommended. These courses are also available at the AP level.

Physics 20 and 30 explore matter and energy through problem-solving and lab work in areas including motion, waves, forces and fields. Students will develop skills in using technology to acquire data and spreadsheets for analysis. A minimum mark of 65% in the previous course is highly recommended. These courses are also available at the AP level.
