Is your child considering the Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) Junior High Honours program for the coming school year? The EIPS Junior High Honours program is designed for students in grades 8 and 9 with high achievement in their core courses and who enjoy a challenging academic environment. Students enrolled in Junior High Honours are expected to complete 25 hours of community service over the course of the year in an area of passion and will be automatically enrolled in the “CTF: Enterprise and Innovation” option course. Students must have a minimum 80 per cent average in each of the four core subjects to be eligible to apply to the Junior High Honours program.
On January 15, the first parent or guardian on file in PowerSchool for all current grades 7 and 8 students will receive direct communication from EIPS outlining the application process for the EIPS Junior High Honours program—including a link to the application form. The email will come from Permission Click at email@example.com. The subject of the email will be “Subject: Elk Island Public Schools - John Doe - 2024-25 Junior High Honours Program Application.” Check your spam or junk folder if you, as the first parent or guardian on file, don’t receive the email.
Applications for the 2024-25 EIPS Junior High Honours program are due Jan. 26, 2024.
On February 1 and 2, EIPS will confirm conditional acceptance in the 2024-25 Junior High Honours program—based on a student’s marks as of January 29. Students currently in honours are conditionally accepted for the 2024-25 Junior High Honours program because they’re currently enrolled in the program. Students must maintain their honours standing on the year-end report card in June to receive final acceptance in the Honours program for the upcoming year.
