IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO MINI SCHOOL APPLICANTS

Important Change of Date Information for 2017-18 Choice Program Admission:

Given ongoing discussions at the provincial level regarding restored teacher collective agreement language and its implementation, the district has determined it is necessary to delay placement offers for ALL elementary and secondary district choice programs.  This includes the Killarney Mini School program.

The revised date for first placement offers for all district choice programs has been changed to Wednesday March 1, 2017.   The dates for the 2nd and 3rd offers will be announced in early March.

We apologize for any inconvenience this change of date may cause students and families.

 Welcome to the Killarney Mini School page!

The Killarney Mini School offers an enriched academic program for students in Grades 8-10. The program covers the same curriculum as regular courses with additional activities throughout the year to broaden the topics covered in each class.

The goal of the Mini School is to provide an enriched and academically challenging program to support students in achieving their full potential. Activities will be learner centred, incorporating ethics, social justice and citizenship into academic studies. Students will have opportunities to integrate learning across the curriculum and focus on in-depth enrichment.

The Killarney Honours Math program:

We want our students to have the opportunity to choose courses that suit their abilities and goals.  There are no Mini School Math courses, but instead students are either enrolled in Mathematics 8 or they can apply for the accelerated honours math program. 

Information on Killarney's Honours Math Courses   ​

Killarney Mini School and the honours math courses pair well together and are scheduled such that a student can be in both at the same time.
