The SHAD experience is a lifelong experience and begins with our month-long summer program, which will show you what you can achieve if you think big and pursue your extraordinary potential.
Each year, top-performing Grades 10, 11 and 12 students or the international equivalent, compete for a place in the month-long program, which is focused on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts & math) disciplines. Approximately 700 students are accepted annually to participate and live in-residence on one of our host university campuses across Canada during the July program.
SHAD provides the unique opportunity to explore a university campus while still in high school, and experience higher learning in a supportive yet challenging environment. Included are lectures, seminars and workshops, presentations by industry leaders, working in teams to simulate a ‘startup’ project, and recreational activities.
