Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

Junior University Multidisciplinary Program (JUMP) offers a variety of educational and interactive courses. Students explore subject areas beyond the classroom and develop a first-hand perspective of postsecondary education.


Can you dig it? Students participate in an archaeological excavation to apply digging techniques and examine authentic artifacts that include real bones. In this course, students learn about the history of the land they’re standing on.


Let’s get moving! Enthusiastic instructors demonstrate that exercise is fun. Students participate in exciting co-operative games, rock climb and take part in an aerobic workout. Students of all abilities and fitness levels enjoy this active course.


Students are introduced to valuable concepts as they identify creative business products while learning about marketing, advertising and finance. They learn what it takes to become tomorrow's brightest leaders.

Communications and Media Studies

Communication is essential in this digital age. Students learn effective ways to use social media, the principles of communication, and how media reflects and influences the world.


This fun course encourages leadership in a variety of ways. Through community building, social action or involvement in school or sports, students learn about different types of leadership styles, why they are important and how they can be applied.


Let’s make music! Students learn about different genres of music and create their own music using boomwhackers and other interesting instruments. Students of all musical abilities enjoy this energetic course.


This interactive course examines how science plays a part in our daily lives. Students have fun learning about and completing biology, chemistry and physics experiments.


Why do people act the way they do? To learn how the brain controls our actions, students are introduced to psychology and human behaviour by wearing perception goggles, and participating in demonstrations to discover more about memory, emotions and personality.


Lights, camera, action! Students gain practical skills and acting techniques such as improvisation, setting a scene and tableau. Small groups work together to develop and present skits which allow students to exercise their imagination and explore their creativity.

“A worthwhile experience for any grade - not just an academic experience but a life experience - developing and enriching all facets of human development - social, emotional, and physical.”
