Pre-Advanced Placement Program

The “Pre-AP” academic programs offered at Mother Teresa are in English, Math and Science (biology) in Grades 9-12 that follow the Ontario Curriculum.  Where possible, pace of learning/assessment and additional enrichment content is incorporated into the courses. This is to better prepare students for the Grade 12 Pre -AP Courses  when students will need to manage the incorporation of the AP Exam material into the Ontario Curriculum within one semester of learning. The Pre-AP program’s objectives are to ensure that students possess the skills and attributes necessary to succeed in the Grade 12 4U courses and to demonstrate their knowledge on the AP Exams should they wish to write them.
