You’ve made it to Grade 11! This is huge. Great work in Grades 9 and 10. This year you will start preparing for post-secondary. Whether you think you might attend college, university, complete an apprenticeship, or join the workforce, our Guidance Team is around to help you plan your pathway.
This year you have more flexibility with your schedule – you will want to make sure that you complete the prerequisites for any Grade 12 courses you require. A typical Grade 11 student will take up to 8 courses during their school year. You can choose to take between 6 and 8 courses this year, but keep in mind that you need 30 credits (18 compulsory and 12 optional) to earn the OSSD. If you aren’t sure how many credits you’ve earned by now or what requirements you need for post-secondary admission, get in touch!
Depending on how many credits you have completed, you can customize your year so that it fits your needs. You may only need to complete 6 or 7 credits this year, and that will allow you a bit more free time to focus on school and extra-curriculars. Unsure about what courses you require to pursue your post-secondary plans? We are here to help!
Rest assured, we know this sounds like a lot to think about, but that’s why we’re here. Don’t hesitate to reach out with questions – book a meeting with guidance to help us, help you!
