Types of Courses in Grades 11 and 12

University Preparation Courses
University preparation courses are designed to equip students with the knowledge and skills they need to meet the entrance requirements for university programs. Teach and learning will emphasize theoretical aspects of the course content but will also include concrete applications.

University/College Preparation Courses
University and college preparation courses include content that is relevant for both university and college programs. These courses are designed to equip students with the knowledge and skills they need to meet the entrance requirements for specific university and college programs. Teaching and learning will emphasize both theoretical aspects and related concrete applications of the course content.

College Preparation Courses
College preparation courses are designed to equip students with the knowledge and skills to meet the entrance requirements for college programs. Teaching and learning will emphasize concrete applications of the theoretical material covered in the course, and will also emphasize the development of critical thinking and problem solving skills.

Workplace Preparation Courses
Workplace preparation courses are designed to equip students with the knowledge and skills they need for direct entry into the workplace or for admission to apprenticeship programs and other training programs offered in the community. Teaching and learning will emphasize workplace applications of the course content, but will also explore the theoretical material that underlies these practical applications

Open Courses
Open courses in grade 11 and 12 are appropriate for all students regardless of post-secondary destination. These courses are designed to provide students with a broad educational base and to equip them for active and rewarding participation in society.

Transfer Credits
Transfer credits enable students who alter their post-secondary plans to transfer from one course to another in grades 10, 11, and 12. Transfer courses are designed to provide the knowledge and skills required to bridge the gap between two courses of different types. These courses will provide partial credits and will qualify as optional credits towards the diploma requirements. They will be offered in summer school.
