Complementary Courses

Career and Technology Foundations

Complementary Program

Career and Technology Foundations, the Fine Arts, French as a Second Language

Purpose: At Arbour Lake School, students study career and technology foundations, fine arts and a second language to learn more about themselves. These experiences are project-based and are designed to help them:

  • Explore - discover their gifts and talents
  • Integrate - connect their knowledge and skills from other subject areas
  • Extend - delve into an area of interest

Assessment: Students are assessed according to a similar rubric structure that includes:

  • Discipline-specific knowledge and skills
  • Their project process and end result
  • Soft skills which may include: leadership, persistence, problem solving etc…

Choice: Students select from the following experiences based on their conversation with advocates such as parents and teachers and by applying knowledge of themselves as a learner. Please be aware that some courses may be cancelled due to demand, timetable constraints, expertise, and other unforeseen circumstances.

Exploratory: The complementary program allows students to try different courses and experiences. Grade 5 and 6 students take an “experiential wheel” of complementary courses where they become familiar with different complementary programs. In Grade 7 through 9, students now have the background and experiences to make informed decisions about the complementary courses they wish to take.​
