John McGregor Secondary School
SHSM Program

JMSS offers the Arts & Culture, Construction, Environment, Health & Wellness, Hospitality & Tourism, Information & Communication and Transportation Specialist High Skills Major certifications. These programs give you a special "red seal" on your high school diploma.

To obtain this recognition on their Ontario Secondary School Diploma, students take a bundle of 8 to 10 courses in grades 11 and 12 including 4 "major" credits in arts and culture. Their other courses (English, and choice of Law, Business, or Native Studies) are specially designed to complement the arts and culture major. Students are required to take a related co-op (2 credits) and get valuable workplace experience related to arts and culture.

This program is equally valuable to students studying Technology and the trades (manufacturing, construction, communications, design), as it is to students studying the Arts (art, music, fashion, drama).

To participate in this unique and valuable opportunity, students should contact Student Services at the school.
