Special Program Opportunities
AP and Pre-AP:

The York Region District School Board has chosen Thornlea Secondary 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 enrolment into pre-AP Science in Grade 9, pre-AP Biology and/or Chemistry in Grade 11, and in Advanced Placement Biology and/or Chemistry in Grade 12.  Although it is not a mandatory prerequisite to take grade 9 Pre-AP Science, Grade 11 Pre-AP Chemistry, or Grade 11 Pre-AP Biology, it is highly recommended for success in Grade 12 AP Chemistry or Grade 12 AP Biology.
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 Biology or AP Chemistry exams 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.

Other Program Opportunities:
  • Biology, Chemistry and Physics Competitions
  • Science Olympics
  • York Region Science Fair
