We are extremely proud and excited to announce the creation of our very own athletic department! Starting in September 2023, SCIDES will offer a new range of sport-specific courses designed for athletes to gain credit for training and competing while supplementing their athletic competition with learning aimed at facilitating both personal and athletic growth. While we have a lineup of seven courses to start with, this will soon expand to nine courses; we will continue to explore new course options to meet the needs of as many individuals as possible! If you are an athlete or interested in athletics, a full-time SCIDES student, cross-enrolled, or looking to cross-enroll, we encourage you to sign up. If you are interested in enrolling for any of the courses in our athletics department, please reach out to Mr. Corey Hermiston via email: chermiston@365.sd58.bc.ca
