    2. Tell us about yourself (any volunteer, work experience and/or achievements)
    3. Why you think you should be chosen for this program
    4. Please include the name and email of a teacher reference in your letter.
  • Important Information for Applicants

    Successful applicants are motivated, mature, and collaborate well with others.

    Potential applicants must be able to commit to attending class after school until December. In January, students must be willing to meet collaboratively in small groups.

    The goal is to have equal student representation in the program from all three of the district’s secondary schools: Rockridge, Ecole Sentinel and West Vancouver Secondary. Also, those students going into Grades 11 & 12 are given priority.

    The staff committee reviews all applications. Successful applicants will be notified via email.

    Please note the application deadline of Thursday, April 6, 2023. If students have any issues uploading their letters, please email it to Ms. Jo-Anne McKee (jmckee@wvschools.ca)
