Benefits of Program

Fast Tracking

The program enables MST students to take summer courses prior to starting grades 9 and 10. This allows students to take grade 10 electives in grade 9 and grade 11 courses in grade 10. This acceleration continues in grade 11, which allows students to accumulate more 12U credits, better preparing students for their post-secondary education.

Enhanced

The MST program allows students with similar interests to work together on projects that are hands-on and self-directed. Many challenges and opportunities await MST students such as Math contests, Sci-Tech Fair, Engineering Team, Sci-Squad, field trips and more.

Opportunities

As students progress to Grade 12, their course options increase dramatically to support a wide variety of post-secondary opportunities.

Pre-Ap

Students cover the curriculum at a faster pace leaving time for enrichment and integration activities, as well as pre-AP preparation.
