Grade 9 & 10 Academic Pathways

All Grade 9 and 10 students follow ISKL’s graduation requirements as outlined in the course guide.

As students select their program of study, there is ample opportunity to choose different courses in multiple department areas to meet individual interests and talents. This wide range of choices enables students to explore different subjects in preparation for future programs and Grade 11 and 12 course choices.

 As they enter Grade 9, students can elect to learn in either a conventional classroom setting where each subject is taught on a stand-alone basis or to enroll in PRAXIS 2030, an innovative interdisciplinary two-year program that reimagines the classroom experience.

Featuring a smaller learning community and flexible timetable, PRAXIS 2030 focuses on problem-based learning and situates the current science, English, social studies, and art/design curriculum around a series of complex, compelling problems that demand an interdisciplinary approach. Mathematics, world language, and elective courses continue to be taught in the regular classroom setting.

PRAXIS 2030 fosters creative exploration, effective collaboration, and active problem-solving with learning anchored in complex, real-world challenges. This rigorous program has different classroom activities from the traditional stand-alone subject areas, however, the learning targets and curriculum remain consistent with ISKL’s alternative Grade 9 and 10 classes.  

Whichever option students select in Grade 9 and 10, they all learn at the same high standard and are well-positioned to make the best-fit choice for their choice of study in Grade 11 and 12.
