Graduation

students attending convocation

Each year in June, a convocation ceremony is held in the school gym for students in the graduating class. This is followed by a celebration that is planned by the students with the support of parents and the grad advisors.

Transition after Graduation

The importance of planning for transition to post-secondary education, or to the workforce, following graduation is emphasized throughout the Senior Years. Students have the opportunity to take the career education courses that run from Grades 9-12, and most students are encouraged to participate in work experience programs in their Grade 11 or 12 year. Students are referred to community agencies who can assist with applications for funding or with establishing training plans.

Parents are encouraged to play an active role in supporting their child during the investigation of various options and should ensure that their child completes pre-requisites for their desired program of study, which may differ from high school graduation requirements.
