STEM is the language of the future
Adult learners typically return to school to complete their secondary education with specific goals and timelines in order to support their future career and education endeavors. It is important that adult learners are supported to expeditiously achieve their Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) and efficiently move to sustainable employment, postsecondary education and/or apprenticeship. Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR) for mature students provides a process by which the prior experiences of adult learners, both formal and informal, can be recognized for secondary credit, minimizing duplication of learning, saving the learner time and opportunity costs, and providing them with an enhanced pathway to high school graduation.
Who is a mature student (Adult)?
- A mature student is a student who is at least 18 years of age on or after January 1 of the current school year and who is enrolled in a program for the purpose of obtaining an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD)

What Makes Us Unique
In a world that has become increasingly globalized and complex, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) skills are becoming increasingly important. As a result, students are eager to learn these skills in order to participate in modern society and the economy. We understand that not many day schools can provide stem education as part of their curriculum. That is why STEM after school programs are becoming more demanding. In the last 15 years, we have offered after school programs and STEM workshops to over 500 students in grades 1-8. We strongly believe in STEM education and the benefits it provides to students.

What is Math Word Problems
A word problem is a few sentences describing a 'real-life' scenario where a problem needs to be solved by way of a mathematical calculation. Word problems are seen as a crucial part of learning in the primary curriculum, because they require children to apply their knowledge of various different concepts to 'real-life' scenarios. The following are example word problems that apply to each primary year group.
Sarah wants to buy a teddy bear costing $5. How many $1 coins will she need?
Brian has 3 sweets. Tom has double this number of sweets. How many sweets does Tom have?

Sarah sees the same jumper in two different sales:
In the first sale, the original price of the jumper is $36.15, but has been reduced by a third.
In the second sale, the jumper was priced at £45, but now has 40% off.
How much does each jumper cost and which one is the cheapest?

What are STEM skills?
STEM is an approach to learning and development that integrates the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Through STEM, students develop key skills including: problem solving. creativity, communication, and leadership. The continual advances in technology are changing the way students learn, connect and interact every day. Skills developed by students through STEM provide them with the foundation to succeed at school and beyond.
STEM empowers individuals with the skills to succeed and adapt to this changing world.
Employment in STEM occupations is projected to grow 8.8% by 2028
