Choices at 7

Limestone Learning Foundation
The Limestone District School Board's Choices at Seven programs offer opportunities for students entering Grade 7 to participate in a variety of unique learning environments. Depending on the availability of places in the programs, students currently in Grade 7 may also apply to join a program for their Grade 8 year.

Challenge Program: Gifted and Academic Enrichment Program

Challenge is designed to meet the needs of academically motivated and/or formally identified gifted students who are seeking new learning challenges while maintaining a healthy, balanced lifestyle.

LEAP Program: Limestone Education through the Arts Program

LEAP allows students to learn the grade 7 and 8 curriculum through an integrated, hands-on approach that uses arts as a foundation. Taught by teachers who are specialists in their field, the purpose of the LEAP Program is to provide students with the opportunity to achieve their personal best through arts-based activities that emphasize teamwork, self-direction, motivation, innovation and creativity.

ATLAS Program: Applying Technology for Learning, Aptitude and Success
  

ATLAS is designed to provide focused, structured learning opportunities for students who are experiencing significant difficulties with communication and organization, and whose academic performance is not necessarily reflective of their potential.
