Complementary Courses

Complementary Programs


At Peter Lougheed School, we offer a variety of complementary programs. These programs are designed to help young adolescents explore a variety of experiences. Students will explore many programs in grade 5 where they will learn about themselves and areas of interest. As they move into grade 6 to 9 they will be able to select their own courses and delve more deeply into areas of passion.

Student Choice

Students select from a variety of programs based on their conversation with 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.

Semester System

Our school year is divided into two semesters. Students take two complementary courses in each semester..


The complementary program allows students to try different courses and experiences. By providing a variety of courses within any given area, students are able to delve into areas of passion, or experiment with up to eight different complementary courses over the course of the year.

Grade 5 to 9 Complementary Programs

Students select up to four complementary programs. All courses are one semester in duration except students in some grades may have the option of signing up for a full year Music class.
