Specialist High Skills Major Programs

Loretto Abbey Catholic Secondary School is proud to offer 3 Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM) programs.

  • Business

  • Information and Communications Technology (ICT)

  • Non-Profit, Education and Child Care

We first began in 2013 with our Non-Profit, Education and Child Care SHSM, then added the Business SHSM in 2016, and the ICT SHSM in 2017. We are very proud of the many SHSM students that graduated from our wonderful programs.

Students who are interested in joining an SHSM program are encouraged to speak to the Lead Teachers of each program or the student's guidance counselor​. Students can apply for the SHSM program in Grade 10 and they will begin in Grade 11.
