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.

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
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,
