What will I learn?

Learn about yourself as you prepare to teach the next generation of eager students.

Complete a Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, or Bachelor of Physical and Health Education while taking courses to meet the requirements for entry into the Professional Year (5th year). Graduate a year ahead of the consecutive teaching programs.

Choose from one of two streams offered, primary/junior (JK-grade 6) or junior/intermediate (grades 4-10). Earn credits in specific subjects in order to teach at the intermediate and senior levels.
