Course Planning

Course planning for the 2022/2023 school year begins in January. Counsellors will be communicating with students and parents to discuss course selection along with graduation and post-secondary entrance requirements. Students and parents are encouraged to participate in these meetings and to then carefully review their choices together in order to make wise decisions.
