1. Non-profit SHSM has the following five required coursecomponents:

1. A bundle of nine Grade 11 and Grade 12 credits

These credits make up the bundle:

•    four non-profit major credits that provide sector-specific knowledge and skills. The four courses must include at least one Grade 11 and one Grade 12 credit, and may include one cooperative education credit related to the sector. (This cooperative education credit would be additional to the two that are required in the bundle; see below);

•    three other required credits from the Ontario curriculum, in each of which some expectations must be met through a contextualized learning activity (CLA) for the non-profit sector. The three credits include:
o    one in English;1
o    one in mathematics; and
o    one in science or business studies (or a cooperative education credit related to the sector, which would be additional to the two cooperative education credits required in the bundle; see below);

•    two cooperative education credits that provide authentic learning experiences in a workplace setting, enabling students to refine, extend, apply, and practice sector-specific knowledge and skills. 

1. Note that a compulsory English credit is required in Grade 11 and in Grade 12 for graduation with an OSSD. Schools may determine whether the OSP, required for the SHSM bundle of credits, is completed in the Grade 11 or Grade 12 English course.
