Specialist High Skills Major

I am pleased to announce that our specialist high skills major (SHSM) program has been expanded from two to five for 2010-2011. Any student entering grade 11 is eligible to apply for this unique opportunity to align his or her schooling with a potential career.

Specialist High Skills Majors let students focus on a career path that matches their skills and interests. Each major is a bundle of 8-10 courses in a selected field.

Students have the opportunity to:

  • Gain important skills on the job with actual employers, at skills training centres and at school
  • Earn valuable industry certifications, including first aid and CPR qualifications.

So if you are interested in a career and want to gain hands-on experience and focus your education in this direction, then this program is a must for you.Talk it over with your parents and, if you are excited about a new opportunity and a custom program, then contact me or the guidance department for more information.
