Summer Enrichment Experience @ Queen’s

SEEQ | For Grades 8 – 12

Program overview

Students in grades eight through twelve, have the opportunity to learn beyond the school classroom with engaging and challenging courses that motivate them to explore and apply new knowledge. They return to school with renewed energy, an excitement for learning, and ideas for post-secondary and career planning.

For students working towards the Duke of Edinburgh International Award Gold Medal, the residence-option satisfies the Gold Project requirement. To receive a Duke of Edinburgh award, students must complete personal goals in 4 to 5 different categories. Please refer to the Duke of Edinburgh – Ontario website for age requirements and other Award information.

Residence & Commuter options are available!

We’re happy to announce that our Mathematics and Physics course (Week 1) is now to be led by RabbitMath – A unique Queen’s mathematics organization led by Queen’s University Math Prof Peter Taylor. For most of his career, Peter worked building evolutionary models of social behaviour, but his creative efforts are now focused on building a new kind of mathematics curriculum.

Residence Option

The residence option provides a complete university experience. Students live in residence, attend daytime classes, eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner in a campus dining hall, and participate in extracurricular activities on the Queen’s campus and around the Kingston community.

Commuter Option

The commuter option provides a university experience that is perfect for students who live within commuting distance to campus. Students attend daytime classes and eat lunch in a campus dining hall with their peers, but do not stay in residence overnight.
