The Brantford Collegiate Institute - Wilfrid Laurier University Program

Think you know the Laurier Program? Think Again. laurier inspiring lives banner.jpg

Want to know more? Come to the BCI/WLU Program presentation on Thursday, November 19, 2015 | 7 p.m. in the BCI Auditorium

Over the past two years, under the advisement of our curriculum team and with input from students, teachers, and parents, we have made

some significant changes to programming in the BCI-Laurier Program. These changes will allow for more flexibility in student timetables,

particularly for students interested in French Immersion and other specialized areas, including Math and Sciences and SHSM programs.

The Laurier Program provides students with the opportunity to work with other highly motivated, academically-minded students. The program provides students with the opportunity to prepare for the intensity of university studies in any discipline. Students will develop confidence in leadership, presentation, and teamwork skills through the unique collaborative focus of the program. 

Students have the chance to take a first-year university course while still attending high school. Upon graduation, Laurier program participants earn a certificate, endorsed by Wilfrid Laurier University, recognizing the student’s involvement in the program. 

In order to develop leadership, presentation and teamwork skills, students in the Laurier program have the opportunity to work together in a variety of courses throughout high school. Designated “Laurier” courses feature integration among the subject areas as a key component of the program philosophy. 

Students interested in gaining entrance to the program at the Grade 9 level will submit an application and take part in a selection process to determine whether their interests, skills and abilities would benefit from the Laurier Program. In addition, academic achievement of 75% average each subsequent year will also be expected of the student to remain in the Program.

We look forward to the continued success of our returning Laurier Program students. It is important to note that students may transfer to the regular programming at Brantford Collegiate Institute & Vocational School at any time. It is the expectation of the program that students will continue in courses at the academic level. If you have any questions, please call B.C.I. and ask to speak to Mr. Utting, Program Director for the Laurier Program.  ​
