The staff and administration would like to welcome you to Spectrum Community School. We hope that you will be successful and that you reach your goals through our “Spectrum” of opportunities.

Plan ahead. While you are still in Grade 9, you should be planning the courses you will take for the next three years to fulfill your 80 credits (minimum) for graduation, or completion of BC’s Dogwood Graduation Certificate.

  • Grade 12 students must have a minimum of 6 courses selected for the school year (excluding alternate selections)
  • Grade 11 and 12 students who have not completed Planning 10 must include Career Life Education as one of their course selections
  • Grade 9, 10, and 11 students must have 8 courses selected for the school year (excluding alternate selections)

In preparation, as a part of your graduation program, you may have to include specific courses. At all post-secondary institutions, every program has its own special requirements. Deciding now, in which general direction you are going, may open doors in the future. Discuss your educational plans with a counsellor and visit the Career Resource Centre (CRC) for information about careers.

In Grade 12, be sure to complete the on-line Post-Secondary Institution (PSI) choices form, which allows your post-secondary institution choice to access your marks.

 

Please view our Course Handbook to help in your selection of courses.
