The Trojan Institute of Media and Entrepreneurship offers a unique career based education through the smaller learning communities model.  At SDHS, our institute will focus on Entrepreneurship, Web Design and Audio Visual Production.

T.I.M.E. is built on four principles:
  • Relevant Instruction
  • Partnerships Beyond School
  • Post-Secondary Jump Start
  • Student Choice
