Laurier Program Sets High Expectations for Secondary Students  

A long-standing partnership between Wilfrid Laurier University and Brantford Collegiate Institute and Vocational School brings a unique opportunity for students to get a head-start on their post-secondary journeys through this certificate program.

BCI’s Laurier program brings a multi-disciplinary approach through specific embedded focus courses. It allows students to work in a highly academic environment with like-minded, motivated individuals, developing the leadership and teamwork skills to prepare for the intensity of post-secondary studies in any discipline. The program focuses on experiential learning in computer design and media, entrepreneurship, game design, and STEAM courses directly connected to Wilfrid Laurier University – Laurier Brantford. 

Upon graduation, students earn a unique certificate, endorsed by Wilfrid Laurier University - Laurier Brantford, recognizing the student’s participation in the program.
