Program Streams

Students enrolled in Kells Grade 12 Program, have the option of entering one of three academically enriching pre-university programs, based on their interests and prerequisites. All students must be enrolled in Grade 12 English. In addition, all students will be required to take both Nutrition & Health, and International Business, regardless of program stream. We believe that understanding basic science and business-related courses exposes students to new ideas and provides a more comprehensive foundation upon entering University, as well as further develop their English language skills.
