Bringing Exceptional Thoughts Alive
A program for highly able learners in Grades 8-12
The BETA Mini School at Alpha Secondary is designed to enrich, challenge and support students who have demonstrated high potential, talent and ability. In an inclusive environment of intellectual peers, the students would participate in rigorous, complex, creative, cognitive challenges. This differentiated program offers an exciting and engaging learning environment designed to support students of high ability to reach their intellectual, personal and social potential. For the 2016/17 school year, the Mini-school will host grade 8 and 9 classes. The program will then continue to add a grade each subsequent year, until it covers grades 8-12. Students who are already in the program do not need to reapply. Should vacancies come available in existing classes through the years, students not already in the program can apply for consideration to fill these vacant spots.
