Planning for College and University can happen throughout a students education. Grade 7, 8 9 and 10 should focus on research and exploration in order to ensure that their course selection for the following year aligns with the requirements for courses related to their interested fields. By the time students get to grade 11, a more targeted career exploration can begin. Grade 11 students are encouraged to begin exploring opportunities offered such as SHSM programs, Dual Credit, Cooperative Education and OYAP. By February of their grade 11 year, it is helpful if students know the pathway, career sectors and programs they may be interested in, in order to ensure they pick appropriate courses required for post secondary, whether its apprenticeship, college, university or direct to work. By grade 12, students should enrolled in the necessary courses and programs that will best prepare them for the post secondary application process. The grade 12 process for post secondary applications are listed below.
