4C Challenge Program

Esquimalt High School has been home to the 4C Challenge Program since the program was developed at the school in 1979.

The program serves the unique needs of creative, gifted and talented learners by grouping students with similar intellectual abilities together in the same classes (ability-grouped classes) and teaching them enriched curricula with teaching strategies suited to their intellectual, social and emotional abilities and needs.

4C Challenge classes maximize the opportunities to enrich students’ learning, support students’ self-directed studies, autonomous learning, and social and emotional well-being. The 4C Challenge Program develops students’ cognitive abilities through differentiated curriculum, acceleration, and enrichment enabling students to achieve their full intellectual potential.

The program is centered on what we refer to as the four “Cs”:

  • commitment to tasks;
  • creative problem solving;
  • challenging curriculum and assignments and;
  • community involvement.
