This is a question best asked to the teachers in your school. The topics covered in these courses vary from school to school. I imagine the teachers at your school would be very excited that you are looking ahead, and would love to give you an overview of the topics.

For a general overview of vectors and calculus, check out the following links:

I suggest you get a syllabus from one of the teachers teaching the course. A syllabus is basically a list of topics covered in the class, and sometimes assignments as well. You can also ask a friend or the librarian to look through the class textbook.
