The Course Selection Process begins in January annually. Students in Grade 9 and Grade 10 will be visited by Guidance Counsellors during class time to explain the process and various options available. Students in Grade 11 will participate in course selection information sessions at the start of January in the mandatory Grade 11 Enrichment Wednesday Sessions.On Course Option Info Day students can visit various subject areas to find out more about courses they are interested in. The Toronto District School Board uses the on-line program “MyBlueprint” for the course selection process. Students will have been introduced to this program in Grade 8. Once course selections are made, via “MyBlueprint”, students will print their option selections, have a parent sign, and hand in the print-out to the main office.
In January, we host our annual Course Option Info Night for Parents. Check the school calendar for more details on date and time.The information session provides an opportunity for parents to understand the secondary option selection process, and graduation requirements, as well as to plan for transition to post-secondary institutes.
