Program Description:

Flex Humanities is a program that integrates Philosophy, World Literature, History, Fine Arts, Film and Media Studies, and Integrated Arts and Technology from grades 8 – 12.  In normal times, we begin each year with a community building outdoor camp. The Flex Humanities students attend plays, films, and music productions and Fort Langley is a major history field study in grade 9. In grade 12, the students will participate in a major culminative field study; in past years, this trip as involved Quebec City/Montreal or New York.

The program provides a supportive, stimulating and challenging environment for self-motivated learners. Students are encouraged to develop their intellect by emphasizing critical thinking skills, analytical writing, cooperative learning, and open format projects. The program has been designed to meet the needs of above average ability students who are interested in working with other self-motivated students.
