Come to Laurier and enter a school where fairness, understanding, and mutual respect are practised every day.  Our beautiful natural setting provides a basis to integrate environmental awareness into our geography, science, art and physical education courses.  Our well-rounded programs offer you many opportunities for apprenticeship and workplace experiences.  At Laurier we are committed to the development of  "character education".  Our goal is to establish behaviours and attitudes that are beneficial to the development of principled and contributing members of the community.  The administrators, teachers, and support staff are dedicated to helping students make the most of their high school learning experience.

Co-curricular Engagement

Laurier's broad co-curricular program offers students many opportunities for involvement in teams, clubs, and performances. Student leadership groups such as the Student Administrative Council (SAC), Character Education, Youth Embracing Sexualities (YES), United Cultures Club (UCC), Laurier United, Green Team, Yearbook Club, Mind Over Matter, Model United Nations, Girls and Boys Groups, and many other clubs and groups that support our students play an important role in ensuring a caring and inclusive school climate.
