Course Planning

Course planning for the 2018/2019 begins in January. Counsellors will be meeting with students and parents to discuss course selection along with graduation and post-secondary entrance requirements. Students and parents are encouraged to attend these meetings and to then carefully review their choices together in order to make wise decisions. Planning carefully for a successful graduation and to maximize post-secondary opportunities is critical.
