Logistics of the Program

    The program would be a two year commitment for the student starting in their grade 11 year. Each semester, half of their timetable, two blocks (morning or afternoon) will be designated for the Science Academy. This would continue over the four semesters of their grade 11 and 12 years. The other two blocks the students will be timetabled with all other Fraser Heights students. This would allow students to take English 11 and 12, Social Studies 11 and other electives within the school community.

    During their two blocks of Science Academy students will be in their cohort with a flexible instructional schedule designed by their instructors. The two and half hours each day can be used for lecture, labs, group work and/or independent studies. With this flexible schedule it is hoped that curriculum can be compressed, integration between mathematics and science is better achieved and the scientific process can be modeled and reinforced within a secondary school setting.

    In the first year of study, students will be instructed in Pre-Calculus 12, Chemistry 11 and 12, Physics 11 and some Physics 12 topics. Along with traditional instruction, an open inquiry approach to learning will be used in preparation for a Capstone project in the grade 12 year. This would include the use of technology in a laboratory setting to model the scientific process. Furthermore field trips will be taken and work experience placements will be offered to students to reinforce the process of acquiring scientific knowledge.

    In the second year of study, students will be instructed in AP Calculus BC, AP Physics 1 and SFU Chemistry 121, 122 and 126. The SFU courses will be available to our students at SFU Surrey as careful consideration has been made to match our timetable with SFU to accommodate for this.
