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.
