Course Descriptions

Prerequisite: None

This course examines interrelationships within and between Canada’s natural and human systems and how these systems interconnect with those in other parts of the world. Students will explore environmental, economic, and social geographic issues relating to topics such as transportation options, energy choices, and urban development. Students will apply the concepts of geographic thinking and the geographic inquiry process, including spatial technologies, to investigate various geographic issues and to develop possible approaches for making Canada a more sustainable place in which to live.

Prerequisite: MTH1W

This course enables students to broaden their understanding of relationships and extend their problem-solving and algebraic skills through investigation, the effective use of technology, and abstract reasoning. Students will explore quadratic relations and their applications; solve and apply linear systems; verify properties of geometric figures using analytic geometry; and investigate the trigonometry of right and acute triangles. Students will reason mathematically and communicate their thinking as they solve multi-step problems.

Prerequisite: SNC2D

This course provides students with the opportunity for in-depth study of the concepts and processes that occur in biological systems. Students will study theory and conduct investigations in the areas of biochemistry, metabolic processes, molecular genetics, homeostasis, and population dynamics. Emphasis will be placed on the achievement of detailed knowledge and the refinement of skills needed for further study in various branches of the life sciences and related fields.

Prerequisite: MCR3U

This course extends students’ experience with functions. Students will investigate the properties of polynomial, rational, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions; develop techniques for combining functions; broaden their understanding of rates of change; and develop facility in applying these concepts and skills. Students will also refine their use of the mathematical processes necessary for success in senior mathematics. This course is intended both for students taking the Calculus and Vectors course as a prerequisite for a university programme and for those wishing to consolidate their understanding of mathematics before proceeding to any one of a variety of university programmes.

No. The Summer Academy is currently open to current and new Bayview Glen students only. 

Once your registration has been confirmed, the teacher will reach out with details regarding textbooks/course materials.  

If the course requires a textbook, it can be purchased through the PA Guild Shop.  

Summer Academy is a fast-paced learning environment. Students cover 110 hours of instruction in 4 weeks in a credit course. Thus, this might not be the right environment for all learners.  

All courses have a culminating activity or combination of activities totaling 30% of the grade. Specifics about what that will be in each course will be communicated by individual teachers at the beginning of the course.   

Students will need parental permission to leave campus during Summer Academy. A permission form will be sent out by the Director of Summer Academy prior to the start of the programme. Otherwise, students can eat lunch on campus.  

Cancellations and refunds are subject to the following policies: 

  • All cancellations must be requested by email to the Summer Academy office at
