Advanced Placement

At times students have expressed interests for enriched learning experiences within the regular school day.  As a result, in 2015 we added the Pre-Advanced Placement program to our course calendar.  This program commences in grade 9 in academic English, science, and math.  Students can choose to enroll for 1 or all 3 Pre-AP courses.  The courses are exactly the same of as their academic counterparts in terms of curriculum, but also include extension activities and can lead to advanced placement if a student chooses to continue their studies at the university level. 

Specialist High Skills Majors

Understanding that many students enter high school with a focus on a specific career path, we introduced Specialist High Skills Majors to our school.  These programs support a student's focus on a career path that matches their skills and interest while meeting the requirements of the Ontario Secondary School Diploma.  Students receive a SHSM seal on their diploma after completing a specific bundle of courses in the selected field, earn valuable certifications and gain important skills on the job through cooperative education placements.  As a result, our school offers Specialist High Skills Major programs in a variety of disciplines and sectors:  Health and Wellness that allow students to focus on either health care or fitness.  As well, students can choose to acquire specialized skills in Information and Communication Technology with a specific focus on Engineering and Robotics, or they can choose the Non-Profit sector with a focus on Community Action and Social Justice.

French Immersion

For many years now a strong French Immersion program has existed at Mother Teresa.  The program presently has an enrollment of almost 350 students. Students in this program complete a package of courses in French over their high school journey, leading to a French Immersion Certificate upon graduation that is recognized by the Ministry of Education.
