The Venture Enrichment Program Application 2016
Venture is a unique academic enrichment opportunity for motivated grade 9 and 10 Panthers. The program has in-class and extra-curricular dimensions and will provide students with outstanding preparation for post-secondary life. Students are 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, experiential and hands on activities that encourages collaboration and critical thinking.
Venture can lead to the University Advanced Placement Opportunities in grades 11 and 12 in addition to enrichment certificates. Students selected for this program will have opportunities for many trips that are student funded but participation will be inclusive with financial assistance available if necessary. These trips have included Montreal, Washington and Chicago. Students are required to complete several independent learning opportunities and must also report back to their fellow learners as to what they have done to enrich their own learning.
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.
Please note that applications are due April 5th at 3:00 p.m. - late submissions will not be accepted.
