What is a focus area?
A focus area is a bundle of courses designed to develop a student’s passion from Grade 8 to Grade 10. All bundles include a balance of required and elective courses. Generally, you can expect to take at least two courses in your area of interest per year.
Students follow their natural strengths but also balance out their timetable with a variety of science, arts, technology, physical education, humanities, and other electives to achieve balance in the Four Pillars of Student Success.
