For motivated and creative students entering Grade 8, this challenging program is unique in that it offers both academic and computer enrichment in the core subjects of English, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies.  Students entering this program should enjoy academic challenges with opportunities for creative problem solving, critical thinking and teamwork. Throughout the program, there are opportunities for leadership and service to both the school and the community.

Advanced software is used to support student activities.  The multitude of resources available on-line will assist students in developing their research skills and exploring the issues related to their core subject areas.  Students will have an opportunity to produce technologically enhanced projects (presentations, videos, publications, animations, etc.) as part of their learning experience.  They will be able to discuss their ideas through forums, conferencing, blogging and other online venues.

Successful completion of this two-year program will include credit for Information Technology 10 and will allow students advanced placement in the senior Information Technology courses offered at King George Secondary.  Students in the Technology Immersion Program are automatically enrolled in the IB Middle Years Program as well.

Enrolment is limited.  Admission requirements include an application form, satisfactory results on the District test, a copy of the student’s most recent report card, and an interview.  An electronic portfolio exhibiting examples of the student’s work would also be helpful.
