High School

Student Council

Student government offers opportunities for student engagement while building character, augmenting leadership skills and creating positive change.

As part of the educational travel program, high school students have a wide variety of opportunities to choose from that expose them to culture, service and adventure.

High School Program

Forward planning is necessary to complete a successful high school program at Concordia. Students should keep this in mind when choosing courses and planning their schedules to ensure they are meeting all the requirements for graduation.

The handbook for students and parents provides a comprehensive look at the high school program, from homework to communication methods and child protection policies. The 2017-2018 daily schedule can be found in the student planner.

Applied Learning

The high school program has several applied learning courses that allow students to find a topic they love, go deep and make learning personal. In these courses students further develop their academic personality. Applied learning is inherent in virtually all areas of the curriculum, from science to visual arts. Additionally, students find opportunities to apply learning outside the classroom through educational travel and co-curricular activities.


During the last two weeks of school, G9 and G10 students experience a unique educational program known as Explorations. Choosing from extensive offerings, students partner with teachers to pursue their passion or explore new interests. Explorations is a sort of curriculum incubator from which current course such as Big Data Analytics, Aerospace Engineering and Social Entrepreneurship.


We are proud to offer an internship program each year as a part of Grade 11 curriculum. Working side-by-side with practicing professionals provides each student a unique opportunity to integrate theory with practical learning. During their internship, students will confront challenges and issues similar to those that they will eventually encounter and have the chance to put their classroom learning to the test.

world university fair

Each spring, we are proud to host the World University Fair, which invites around 150 higher education institutions to our campus. This is an excellent opportunity to gather information about various universities from around the world and ask questions that will determine how well they match your educational goals. The fair is open to non-Concordia students, and no registration is required.

Finding the Right Balance

Balance is important and a student’s class schedule should not be over-weighted with too many AP (or Honors) courses. Students should keep in mind the demanding nature of their course load, as they participate in co-curricular activities.

Mock Hiring Fair

This event has students vying for internships through face-to-face interviews with reps from multinational companies and organizations. Students receive feedback from their interviewers, which provides valuable insight for future job interviews.

College guidance at Concordia provides a personalized, student-centered program that informs and supports both students and parents.
