Laura Secord Secondary School has a long tradition of excellence, in Academics, Arts, and Athletics. We are also host to the DNA Arts program, which gives students unique opportunities to explore their creative side. Surprisingly, the majority of our DNA students pursue post-secondary careers in health sciences, engineering and business.

At Secord, we believe the Arts develop students’ ability to collaborate, innovate and create. Laura Secord is developing future leaders who need to have these critical skills in a global economy. There are many leadership development groups students can get involved in here such as JUMP Mentors, Prefects and Crew, to name a few.

Laura Secord Secondary School has diverse programming as well as a diverse student population Last year, our new SHSM Construction students won the gold medal for Team Carpentry in the Tech Skills Provincial Challenge! We are also known for putting on full scale productions such as Mamma Mia!, have received invitations to perform at the Canada Games 2022 and the Performing Arts Centre, and have had featured artists perform workshops for our students. We have won the PRIDE Unity Award for the hard work of our GSA and are introducing the Equity and Social Justice course in Grade 12. At Secord, it is not uncommon for our star hip-hop dancers to be our star athletes as well.

Over the last several years, extensive upgrades have been made to our new Fitness Centre which helps our athletes to train in the off-season to meet their personal goals. We offer a wide variety of sports and have dedicated coaches that help foster a fun and competitive atmosphere.

Whatever students may be interested in, Secord has something to offer! If you are a part of our Secord family, you will enjoy an active, unique, incredible high school experience and be a part of this community forever!
