Course Selection

Students should familiarize themselves early with prerequisites required for admission to College/University programs of interest. By researching, students can plan for necessary prerequisites courses for Grade 12. To assist in your educational planning you can refer to:

Please Note:

  • Some courses may be cancelled due to low enrolment. Course selections are not guaranteed.
  • Changes to electives may be accommodated if possible until the end of June. No changes to electives will be accommodated in September. Only level and pathway changes will be accommodated if possible once the new school year begins.
  • Choose courses wisely, changes may not be possible.
  • Ontario University bound students will need 6 Grade 12 U or M level courses, including stated required courses from individual university program requirements. It is the student’s responsibility to make sure they have all the prerequisites and meet university program requirements.
  • Co-op credits do not count towards admission averages for university. However, it is an excellent opportunity for hands on learning, investigating possible career pathways, increase employability skills and gain real work experience. A separate application is required. Please see Student Services for more information

Online Learning
