Grade 8-12 Excel Information

Updated January 2021

At Burnaby North, Excel (Enriched and Honours) courses begin at the grade 8 level for Art, English, French, Mathematics, and Science. Students interested in applying for Excel courses in any of these areas must demonstrate a passion for the subject and want to explore it further.

There will be no placement exams for the 2021-2022 school year for incoming grade 8 students. Instead, students will be recommended to Excel based on student self-selection of Enrichment or Honours courses and possibly grade 7 teacher recommendation.
