Incentive Program

***APPLICATION FOR 2023 - 2024***

The Hugh Boyd Incentive Program challenges motivated students to achieve academic and personal excellence. It is designed to meet the needs of high ability students with potential leadership qualities. Students in each grade will study English, Social Studies, and Science in an environment designed to challenge them. There will be opportunities for cooperative learning, independent study, and out of school field trip experiences. Students must be independent thinkers and risk- takers in their approach to learning and possess critical thinking and creative problem solving skills. The Incentive Program extends beyond the academic courses and includes:

A strong work ethic and positive attitude towards schooling are important selection criteria.

  • leadership training and development through workshops and practical applications in the program setting;
  • community service which promotes social responsibility;
  • outdoor education which allows students to learn about the relationship of humans and our natural environment; and
  • field studies through group or individual field trips, encouraging students to use community resources.
