The Academic Solution

HIGH SCHOOL ACADEMIC PROGRAM

CADO follows the curriculum prescribed by the Ministry of Education and Higher Education (MEES) at both the elementary and high school level. Because we work directly with the Ministry, we do not depend on any school board.

Our students obtain the same high school diploma (DES-Diplôme d’études secondaires) as they would at any other high school.

Please find below our list of courses, along with their respective codes as, prescribed by the Programme de formation de l’école québécoise (Québec Education Program) for high school students  (http://www.education.gouv.qc.ca/enseignants/pfeq/).

Teaching Methods

In an effort to accommodate a wider variety of learning styles, CADO advocates a diverse range of teaching methods. We strive to offer a proactive education that meets the needs of our students.

  • Differentiated instruction
  • Modelling
  • Lecturing
  • Project-based learning
  • Explicit teaching

We enjoy helping students learn through projects. Below you will find a list of interesting activities CADO students have enjoyed in recent years :

  • Afternoon Project Fair : Within the scope of an interdisciplinary project (geography, history, ethics and religious culture, French and English), students researched a chosen country and later displayed their findings in the form of a poster or bilingual pamphlet in the gym.
  • Family tree : As part of the Histoire à la citoyenneté (History of Citizenship) course, students were asked to research their family history and relate it to that of Quebec.
  • Sports announcer conference : As part of the French program, a sports announcer spoke to students about his job after which point students were  asked to write a newspaper report.
  • Conferences featuring people from different professional backgrounds : As part of the Personal Orientation Project, several conferences were held to help students learn more about the professional associations they were interested in.
  • Inventing a new tag game for primary school children : As part of Physical Education, highschool students were asked to invent a new tag game and introduce it to primary school children who would then test it out.
  • Singer conference : Following a lecture by a singer in French class, students could build on their learning and write song lyrics
  • Soldier and police officer conference : As part of the Contemporary World course, a soldier and a police officer shared their respective experiences in Afghanistan and Haiti.
  • Career Day : Every year, Quebec CEGEPs, professional centres and Outaouais universities present their programs to CADO students.
  • Reading Buddies : A new project is underway in which highschool students read stories to preschool and lower grade primary students. The next step is to have students write their own stories that primary students will then illustrate.

Your child will be in a:
