Venture is a unique academic enrichment opportunity for motivated grade 9 and 10 Panthers. The program will be multi-layered and will have in-class and extra-curricular dimensions. This program will provide students with outstanding preparation for University. Students will be timetabled together for a minimum of one course per semester to ensure that their learning can extend to and from the classroom. 21st Century skill development will enhance their educational experience beyond the classroom through the use of technology, trips and hands on activities that will encourage collaboration and critical thinking. Venture leads to the University Advanced Placement Opportunities in grades 11 and 12 in addition to enrichment certificates.
Students selected for this program will have the opportunity to participate in two major trips. The trips will be student funded but participation will be inclusive with financial assistance available if necessary. Previous trips have included: Montreal and Washington DC. Students will be required to complete several independent learning opportunities.
Venture is a unique Prince Edward Collegiate Institute initiative. We strive to provide all learners with the experiences they will need to ensure success in their future endeavors. We are proud to declare that the Venture Program has evolved and will continue to evolve as the needs of our Panthers continue to change and develop.
