Programs and Courses
Transition to the Senior Years is a time when students and parents make important course selection decisions. We provide compulsory and a wide range of optional courses designed to meet the needs, interests, and abilities of students. The program provides a sound basis for further education or immediate employment.

The Common Course Book has been designed to provide course information and address questions that arise as students make the transition to their seniors years. Information about compulsory courses is organized by grade and by subject area. The book covers common course information, high school profiles, and optional courses offered at each facility, as well as information that will assist you in making choices.

Advanced Placement Program
What is AP? The College Board's Advanced Placement Program (AP) encourages students to pursue University Level studies with the opportunity to earn University credit while still in High School. AP courses give students access to rigorous University level work but with the support of their High School teachers. Students build confidence and learn the essential time management and study skills that will assist them in their post-secondary studies. In addition, students have the opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of the subjects that interest them and develop their research and communication skills.
