Advanced Placement (AP) courses are an option for students who are able and want to enrich and challenge themselves in particular subject areas by working on university-level material while still in high school.

Career and Experiential Learning

Experiential learning is connected to careers and other academic areas so students can study course material at school and in the community. This program is offered at Nutana Collegiate.

Career and Work Education programs provide collegiate students with the opportunity to blend theoretical and practical experience both in the classroom and at a work site other than the classroom.
