"The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has
its own reason for existence. One cannot help but be in awe
when one contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of
the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries
merely to comprehend a little of this mystery each day.
Never lose a holy curiosity."
Albert Einstein
1879-1955

Our science program offers thorough training in theoretical science, focusing on physical
principles, logical analysis, problem-solving and applied mathematics. We offer programs in two
streams:
Academic and Gifted.
Advanced Stream

This stream is ideal for students wanting to study science at a challenging level, helping the
transition to University-level courses. Students in this stream typically desire to pursue careers in
the sciences, health sciences and engineering. The general aim of this custom-made curriculum
is to provide a deep understanding of the topics covered in high school and first-year university
Physics, Chemistry and Biology. Each course is one year in duration.
