The Canadian International Matriculation Programme (CIMP) is a Year 12 secondary school curriculum delivered according to the requirements of the Ontario (Canada) Ministry of Education. CIMP graduates earn the highly regarded Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) which is globally accepted as an entry into universities.
CIMP is a rigorous programme with high academic standards. The day-to-day classroom progression centres on the expansion, transmission and application of knowledge, skills and attitudes from the Canadian curriculum. Emphasis on transferable skills such as critical thinking, innovation and creativity, communication, and collaboration provides students with a strong foundation for success in tertiary education and future career. Opportunities to become involved in leadership activities, and to participate in extracurricular activities develop students in CIMP into socially responsible and globally conscious citizens in their communities.
The uniqueness of CIMP emerges in the method of assessment and evaluation in the context of an authentic student-centred learning environment. CIMP practices continuous assessment rather than on a final examination. Students are challenged on daily class work throughout the semester accounting for 70% of their final grade, and 30% is determined by the performance of their final examination. This assessment and evaluation method places a much greater emphasis on student involvement in the teaching and learning process throughout the semester at CIMP. With day-to-day preparedness, commitment and achievement; our students can and do reach their academic goals.
CIMP students are expected to become active and engaged learners. With their daily commitment and level of involvement in class, students will become creative thinkers, developing the powers of observation, imagination, reasoning, as well as gaining confidence as effective communicators.
