Science Co-op Program - This is a 16 credit full semester program for students interested in exploring science careers and learning science in a more hands on manner than traditional courses. The courses offered are physics 11, chemistry 11, IDS Chem/Physics (enrichment) and work experience 12. You spend all day with the co-op class during second semester. Students spend 3 weeks at a work experience placement of their choice and there are numerous field trips. You make valuable workplace connections and get preferential admission to most post secondary co-op programs.  Students are selected for the program based on recommendations from their teachers and their marks (minimum B in science and math).

Astronomy 11 – Astronomy is the oldest science. It is the study of stars, galaxies, planets, moons, asteroids, comets and other "celestial objects". This course will provide a comprehensive introduction to modern astronomy including its historical development, practical sky observations in our local area, telescope use and detailed information on the planets & moons of our solar system. In addition, we will study the formation of exotic objects in our universe such as quasars, pulsars, black holes and neutron stars. This is a rigorous academic course which is a locally developed elective credit course. 

Sport Science 11 – This course is designed to expose students to aspects of Biology, Biochemistry and Physics as concerned with sports and the human body.  The topics that will be explored will prepare students for post-secondary work in the faculties of Kinesiology (SFU) and Human Kinetics (UBC).  Those topics include human anatomy and physiology, biomechanics and other principles of physics, analysis of team and individual sports, principles of training, nutrition, and sports injury management.
