Take a closer look at our courses!
In Grades 11 and 12, students will focus more on their individual interests and identify and prepare for initial postsecondary goals. In these grades there are also more opportunities than in Grades 9 and 10 for learning experiences beyond the school, including cooperative education, work experience, apprenticeship, and school–work transition programs. The four destination-related types of courses are: university preparation courses, university/college preparation courses, college preparation courses, and workplace preparation courses.

University / College Preparation Courses
University/college preparation courses include content that is relevant for both university and college programs. These courses are designed to equip students with the knowledge and skills they need to meet the entrance requirements for specific university and college programs. The range of courses offered and the content of these courses will allow students to prepare for college and university programs and related careers. Teaching and learning will emphasize both theoretical aspects and related concrete applications of the course content. All university/college preparation courses will be based on rigorous provincial curriculum expectations and will emphasize the development of both independent research skills and independent learning skills. Students will also be required to demonstrate that they have developed these skills.
College Preparation Courses
College preparation courses are designed to equip students with the knowledge and skills they need to meet the entrance requirements for college programs. The range of courses offered and the content of these courses will allow students to prepare for most college programs and related careers. Teaching and learning will emphasize concrete applications of the theoretical material covered in the course, and will also emphasize the development of critical-thinking and problem-solving skills. All college preparation courses will be based on rigorous provincial curriculum expectations and will emphasize the development of both independent research skills and independent learning skills. Courses will also require students to demonstrate that they have developed these skills.
Workplace Preparation Courses
Workplace preparation courses are designed to equip students with the knowledge and skills they need for direct entry into the workplace or for admission to apprenticeship programs and other training programs offered in the community. The range and content of the courses offered will allow students to prepare for a variety of jobs, training programs, and careers. Teaching and learning will emphasize workplace applications of the course content, but will also explore the theoretical material that underlies these practical applications. Cooperative education and work experience placements within the community are important components of workplace preparation courses.
Schools will involve employers and site supervisors in the planning of cooperative education and work experience placements, and will ensure that they have their cooperation and support in implementing these courses. Workplace preparation courses will be based on rigorous provincial curriculum expectations and will emphasize the development of generic employment skills, as well as independent research and learning skills. Students will be required to demonstrate that they have developed these skills. Workplace preparation courses in particular should also promote and stress the importance of lifelong learning.
Open Courses in Grades 11 and 12
Open courses in Grades 11 and 12 allow students to broaden their knowledge and skills in a particular subject that may or may not be directly related to their postsecondary goals, but that reflects their interests. These courses are appropriate for all students regardless of post secondary destination. These courses are designed to provide students with a broad educational base and to equip them for active and rewarding participation in society. They are not designed with the specific requirements of university or college programs or the workplace in mind.
