Woburn Collegiate Institute (Gr 09 - 12)
"Let the zeal for learning flourish"
Our school is committed to academic excellence, responsible citizenship and individual student growth and achievement providing a demanding curriculum for several academic levels. Woburn offers many co-curricular and extra curricular activities in athletics, the arts and academics appealing to diverse interests. Our clubs and teams excel in athletics, mathematics, technology, computers, music and drama competitions from the municipal to international levels. Our student council is active in the leadership of the Woburn community and culture providing school wide activities, events and assemblies year round. The enthusiasm and initiative demonstrated by our students are exemplary and contribute to a safe and enriched learning environment.
The Woburn Robotics Team 188 is a multi-award winning team. Woburn is the first Canadian team to compete in the FIRST (For Inspirational and Recognition for Science and Technology) Robotics competition. FIRST is a multinational engineering contest in which the community works together to brainstorm, design, problem solve, construct and test their robot prior to any competition. Woburn continues our robotics legacy through the mentorship and leadership of new students by former students.
Student Support and the Woburn Community
Woburn students achieve success in a number of pathways preparing them for the future. Each year, Woburn celebrates a large number of Ontario Scholars and the majority of our students are accepted into the college or university of their choice. A school-wide cross curriculum with an emphasis on literacy and numeracy helps to prepare students for post secondary pursuits.
