St. John Henry Newman and St. Jean Brebeuf offer a gifted program for junior high students who need specialized support to meet their learning needs. Gifted students work in a dynamic and collaborative setting and the program provides appropriate learning accommodations including compacted curriculum and independent learning opportunities. Students also participate in extension activities such as workshops, field trips and listen to guest speakers to support and enrich the curriculum.
In collaboration with all schools, gifted students identified under the provincial student identification system at the district level are potential candidates for the Congregated Gifted setting. Students eligible for the program have the opportunity to register in the spring of their Grade 6 year.
