The NEXUS Program is designed for passionate post-secondary bound high school students. Through NEXUS, we’re bridging the gap between high school and post-secondary education (PSE), whether you are planning on going into college, university, apprenticeship programs or other post-secondary pathways – there’s a place for you at NEXUS. The NEXUS Program is an opportunity for students to acquire the technical and soft skills necessary to succeed in life after high school! Students can take the Engineering Stream, or Science Stream (or both) to begin acquiring the technical skills in their field of interest. Throughout the program, students will cover modules and complete assignments that help them develop fundamental soft skills that have been shown to be crucial for success in post-secondary education including time management, studying effectively and note taking.
Anyone in grades 11 and 12 can sign up for NEXUS.
Weekday evenings - click on each course above to find out when they take place!
Participants can take both streams (there are no overlaps in the content).
For participants looking to gain technical knowledge and skills in computer programming and have an interest in pursuing an engineering or software related field, we recommend the Engineering Stream.
For participants looking to sharpen up on their conceptual scientific knowledge and wish to pursue careers related in the science fields of biology, chemistry or physics, we recommend the Science Stream.
