Each year, Carleton University, the University of Ottawa, La Cité Collégiale and St. Paul University offer a week-long enriched learning experience to bright and highly motivated high school students in grades 8-11 (Ontario) and Sec. 2-5 (Québec). More than 3,000 students participate in this program annually, and Carleton hosts about 1000 students.
About fifty mini-courses are offered by Carleton University to grade 8 – 11 students. These students are coming from the school boards of eastern Ontario and western Quebec. The mini-courses are taught by instructors and graduate students from the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, the Faculty Public Affairs and Management , the Faculty of Business, the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Engineering and Design.
