Math is more than just a letter on a report card. We understand that every student who enrolls with Fairfax Collegiate has a unique background, comfort level, and attitude towards math. Our curriculum takes these differences into account while providing several other benefits.
Our accelerated online math program is designed to provide all students with the opportunity to explore, discover, engage with, and master specific course material that is at least two grade levels beyond their age.
Our programming courses are for students with varied backgrounds in programming, including those who have no prior experience - open-ended projects engage and challenge beginners and experienced programmers alike. Courses focus on real programming languages and set students up for success in high school and beyond.
Our engineering courses are designed around hands-on activities and projects. Each of our courses represents a real field of engineering, as well as connecting to one or more of the four primary disciplines of engineering: mechanical, electrical, chemical, and civil.
Educational technology is an important component of STEM programs. These courses put devices such as robotic brains, virtual reality headsets, and unmanned flying aircraft into students’ hands, and then let them rapidly learn to build and program them to achieve impressive results.
Pick up a computer or digital camera and let your artistic creativity flow! Learn about computer graphics, design your dream house, create sophisticated web pages, pioneer new forms of digital journalism, or master photography with point-and-shoot or DSLR cameras. In the age of the computer, your only limitation is your imagination.
Additionally, explore Fairfax Collegiate's filmmaking courses which build technical skills, creative skills, and the skills required to work collaboratively in a creative endeavor. Filmmaking and video are today’s most influential communications media. Outstanding communicators must be able to create—not just consume—video in its myriad forms. Students brainstorm ideas as a group, write and revise formatted scripts, operate sophisticated cameras, microphones, and lights, and edit videos using industry-standard software.
