MaST is a four-year program specializing in Mathematics, Science and Technology that provides:

ACCELERATION: The grade 9 program enables students in grade 10 to take some grade 11 courses.  This acceleration continues in the following year and interested students could graduate with up to twelve grade 12 credits (This is double the minimum requirement for university acceptance.) MaST students graduate with an average of nine grade 12 credits.

ENRICHMENT: The MaST classes allow students with similar interests to work together on projects that are hands-on and open-ended.  Many challenging and enriching opportunities are available to them such as Math and Science Contests, National Science Fair, and Skills Canada Competitions etc…Please visit the  news page to see what they have been up to recently.

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