Templeton Secondary school


Applying to the STEM Program

Being part of a project-based learning cohort is quite different from regular courses.  For many, student-centered project-based learning in groups is a highly engaging environment.  Other students do not thrive in this setting, preferring the more direct approach and individual work of regular classes.  Students who derive the greatest benefit from the STEM program are self-starters, show commitment, and work well in groups.

Students wishing to enter the STEM  program must be Templeton students. Registration information for joining the Templeton family can be found at the VSB website.  Enrollment in Templeton STEM is limited and a separate application is required, using the form below.


Students can apply to be in a STEM 8 cohort using the Templeton STEM application form.  The deadline for application is the last day of school in December. In cases where there are more applicants than spaces, selections are made by lottery.  Notification of acceptance is given in the last week of February.

STEM 9 - STEM 12

Where space permits, Templeton students may join the STEM program in any grade by contacting their grade level counsellor.  For students already in the program, continuation to the next year can be subject to available spaces.  In the situation where a cohort is over-subscribed, placements will be made by lottery to students who have a high degree of initiative, perseverance in the face of failure, and commitment to growth as a learner.
