The purpose of Templeton Mini School is to provide selected students with the best education possible so that they can reach their intellectual, personal, social, and career potential. Templeton Mini School is an academic program offering an exciting and challenging learning environment, which as been developed to meet the diversified cognitive, emotional, and social needs of our students. It is designed to develop concepts and attitudes to help students become independent, life-long learners. With a strong focus demanding concentration, effort, and dedication, the Mini School emphasizes social responsibility to school and community.
Each year in the fall, students participate in an outdoor education retreat at Strathcona Park Lodge. Templeton Mini also provides opportunities for individual classes to participate in excursions such as Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre (grade 8), Victoria (grade 10), and Ashland, Oregon (grade 11).
