Alternative Programs

Academic Enrichment Program

The Academic Enrichment Program at T.D. Baker offers motivated students rigorous academic experiences by deepening their learning in the core subjects of Mathematics, Science, English Language Arts, and Social Studies.  Students will engage with enriched coursework while striving for academic achievement. This program is an opportunity to explore different ways of thinking and engage in higher levels of learning as global citizen leaders.

Academic Enrichment students:

  • demonstrate self-motivation, enjoy a challenge and synthesizing information all while being an independent and responsible learner.
  • demonstrate characteristics of high academic achievement that would have the current school, in consultation with their parents, recommend the program as an appropriate learning environment for them.
  • Parental support and commitment is encouraged.


  1. Between February 1st and March 22nd, log onto SchoolZone and select T.D. Baker as your child’s preferred school, and select the Academic Enrichment Program under the Program section. 
  2. Contact your child’s teacher and ask them to fill out the T.D. Baker AEP recommendation form that was sent to their school.
  3. We may contact parents to discuss program suitability.
