Academic Programming

Pre-AP and Advanced Placement - Grades 7 to 12

Pre-AP is an advanced level program for junior high level students. It provides an added level of rigor and is an internationally recognized program. Advanced Placement is programming that takes place at the high school level and prepares students for college and university studies. It is also recognized by post-secondary institutions as part of the application process.

Both programs, Pre-AP and Advanced Placement are being offered at École Sainte Marguerite d'Youville beginning with high school courses this semester.
