We believe that in all classes students should be extended in order to reach their full potential. Where students have particular interests, the school offers an elective extension course, UCAN Excel. This elective course allows students to pursue a particular passion.
Throughout this course, students need to be motivated, take responsibility for, and ownership of, their own learning. Students are intimately involved in planning their own learning, formulating questions, investigating widely, create prototypes and designed solutions, and building new understandings, meanings and knowledge in an area (or areas) that they are passionate about.
Previous student projects include game design, computer programming, web design, external course completion, a scripted, acted and filmed comedy series, fiction manuscripts, and award-winning art works.
