Enrichment & AP Courses


Students who thrive on academic challenges will flourish at Lakefield College School by embracing the broad range of co-curricular and classroom opportunities available to them for discovery, questioning, analysis, and synthesis. The high-calibre debating program, the extensive global service opportunities, the international exchanges, the math and science competitions and the drama and music festivals are but a few examples of programs that allow students to develop their particular intellectual passions.

Inside the classroom, our Grade 11 and 12 Advanced Placement program allows our teachers to challenge our strongest students by creating learning opportunities that allow more depth of exploration and a fast-paced classroom environment.

Advanced Placement Courses and AP Capstone Diploma

If you would like to earn one or more first-year university credits while earning a secondary school credit at the same time, Lakefield College School offers a number of Advanced Placement (AP) courses through the College Board Advanced Placement Program. Included are two new courses, AP Seminar and AP Research, required to earn the AP Capstone Diploma. You may begin taking these courses in Grade 11.

Advanced Placement (AP) courses offer students the opportunity for enriched study and can provide students applying internationally with additional validation of the rigour of their high school program.

Students who enrol in an Advanced Placement course do so in conjunction with the corresponding Ontario course. For some courses, Lakefield also offers a Grade 11 AP Preparatory course so that the necessary content of the AP courses may be covered fully.

To earn an Advanced Placement credit, students write an externally evaluated exam in May. The exam is graded out of 5, and a score of 4 or 5 is generally viewed as equivalent to a university credit.

The following Advanced Placement courses are offered at Lakefield College School:
  • Art and Design
  • Language and Composition
  • Literature and Composition
  • Seminar
  • Research
  • Microeconomics
  • Comparative Government and Politics
  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Physics 1
  • Statistics
  • Calculus
  • Computer Science Principles
  • French
