Our annual course selection process begins in February and continues until the beginning of March. We usually kick-off the process with separate grade-specific parent and student meetings hosted by our Administration & Academic Counselling teams to outline and review the programs, pathways, and academic options available to students at each grade level. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, our Course Selection Parent Information sessions cannot be done in person this year.
What is the process going to look like this year?
Similar to last year with a few twists!
Our Academic Counselling Team has already met with all of our current Grade 8s, 9s, 10s, and 11s to review the course selection process. Follow-up Grade level meetings, as well as individual meetings, have also begun. Students with specific questions related to a particular course or regarding their own individual education plan and/or goals are – after speaking with their parents – encouraged to review the 2021-2022 Course Programming Guide, speak directly with an Academic Counsellor, or consult their current teachers.
Parents and the Course Selection Process:
Parents obviously play a massive role in this process. We have encouraged our students to sit down with their family to discuss their course selections for 2021-2022 (as well as the individual education goals they will be setting for themselves) before submitting their final selections. All of the requisite materials and resources are available for parents and students to view and download using the links found on this page.
Grade level specific Course Selection Presentations, as well as a series of screen-casted videos that go over many of the Frequently Asked Question (FAQs) we receive from parents and students during our regular live and in-person sessions are available below.
Our Academic Counselling Team, as always, is available to answer any questions you might have.
*Please Note: The Course Selection module will be open via the Parent Portal of PowerSchool effective Thursday, February 18th, 2021 @ 12Noon. The deadline for the submission of 2021-2022 Course Selections is Friday, March 5th, 2021 @ Midnight.
