The curriculum of the Arrupe Division, comprised of Grades 7 and 8, challenges the boys to develop the capacity to understand complex and demanding concepts. We have chosen content and methods that match the strengths and interests of boys. The teachers emphasize teaching methods and classroom situations that utilize the enthusiasm and creativity that boys bring to school.

The boys learn by doing — by conducting experiments, working in groups, debating, role-playing, writing their own stories, and giving voice to their ideas. The boys learn to write and to read critically. They practice the skills necessary for working in groups, for discussing ideas, and for collaborating with others. We strive to make that work meaningful, to spark the boys’ interest in gaining knowledge and understanding by focusing the courses around essential questions; and to encourage them to make connections between what they learn in school and what happens in their world outside of BC High.
