The Discovery Program is designed to be a life-changing experience for Grade 10 students. The program is a year-long outdoor education cohort of up to 20 students who extend their learning by undertaking challenging outdoor pursuits over the course of their grade ten year. Removing students from the distractions of our modern urban existance and engaging them in hands-on opportunities allows them to extend their learning and develop a deeper understanding of classroom concepts and of themselves. Through a wide range of activities, the program challenges boys in body, mind, and spirit to become positive, contributing members of society.

The following video includes information about the program, images of trips and activities and interviews with students who have previously participated in the Discovery Program.

Students in the Discovery Program participate fully in all aspects of the regular grade ten curriculum with an additional focus on:
  • developing leadership
  • improving time management
  • understanding risk and decision making
  • developing a personal environmental and social ethic
  • connecting classroom learning with local field trips
  • enhancing outdoor skills through wilderness experiences
