University Now! is a unique opportunity for St. Boniface Diocesan High School students to earn university credits in partnership with the University of Winnipeg and the University of Manitoba while they are still in high school. These courses will have tuition over and above SBDHS tuition and are considered dual credits: they count for high school graduation and university credit with our partner institutions.


What does this mean?

This means students will have the option to take either Calculus 1500 in collaboration with the University of Manitoba or Applied Computer Science 1805 in collaboration with the University of Winnipeg.


Once the student has successfully completed the post-secondary course, they will earn a post-secondary credit that also counts toward fulfilling the elective credit requirements for high school graduation. 


A few notes: 

  • Post-secondary courses cannot blend with existing high school courses (i.e. pre-calculus must be completed in order to take Calc 1500).

  • These post-secondary courses must be an optional course for students; it cannot be offered in lieu of a compulsory high school course. 

  • Not successfully completing the post-secondary course, cannot be awarded a high school credit for the course or post-secondary credit. 

  • There will be an additional fee added to the student's tuition at a significant discount of typical university tuition fees.

  • There is a mandatory lab component to be taken along with the regular class schedule.

  • Textbooks and lab materials must be supplied by the student.


When are courses offered in 2019/20?

Calculus 1500 - University of Manitoba

In this course, students will learn the differentiation and integration of elementary functions, with applications to maxima and minima, rates of change, area, and volume. Through these components, students will learn its importance through a wide array of applications. It's an indispensable tool in virtually all sciences. Calculus is useful for analyzing models of changing phenomena in the world, analyzing statistics of changing population, data management and even space travel! All that you can learn during your time at SBDHS! 


The main objectives of these courses will be to understand definitions of limit and derivative, manipulate the properties and appreciate the applications. 


Students are required to have successfully completely pre-calculus with a final grade of 85% as a prerequisite for this course. 


The midterm(s) and final examinations must also be taken at the University of Manitoba campus.
