Enrichment Opportunities

AP Computer Science

The York Region District School Board has chosen our school to offer the Advanced Placement Program for students who want to challenge themselves with a more rigorous curriculum.  We invite all students who are willing to accept the challenge of a more demanding academic curriculum to consider enrollment into AP Computer Science.  Although it is not a mandatory prerequisite, taking grade 11 Pre-AP Computer Science, is highly recommended for success in grade 12 AP ICS4UE.
The Advanced Placement Program (AP) is an international course of study written by university professors, which allows students to write standardized exams around the world.  Successful completion of the AP Computer Science exam in May can earn credits or advanced standing at universities in Canada and abroad.  The biggest incentive for students enrolled in the program, is that they will be well prepared to meet the challenge of university courses.

Computer Club

The computer department also runs a computer programming club which is available for anyone who is keen and looking for opportunities for enrichment. Senior students teach the junior members programming languages and concepts that go beyond the secondary school curriculum. Teams are formed from the members of the club and they compete in challenges such as the York Region Programming Contest, the University of Waterloo CCC, ECOO and IBM's CASCON Highschool Programming Contest. The club meets after school each Wednesday in the senior computer lab, room 221.
