Prelude Program

Prelude is an enriched school program - not a district program. Only students in the Churchill catchment may be admitted to the Prelude Program.

Prelude has never been affiliated with IB - it is not a Middle Years or Pre-IB program.

For details about IB (Grade 11 and 12), please visit the IB page
