The Specialist High Skills Majors (SHSM) program offers students the opportunity to explore a specific community, or economic and/or industrial sector in preparation for post-secondary destinations in one of four pathways: Apprenticeship, College, University or Workplace.

Students will complete a number courses in their specialization area during grades 11 & 12.  This also includes a minimum 2-credit co-op experience, reach ahead activities and sector-specific certification training.  Students who complete the SHSM program will receive a special seal on their diploma.

To learn more, please speak to lead teachers in the Arts, Business or Technology departments, or book an appointment with your guidance counsellor.
