Course Selection for Next Year

The course selection process for the next academic year is now complete.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the course selection, please contact your child’s guidance counsellor at extension 411. Students can still make course changes up until June 15th .

A verification form will be distributed to all students in mid-June so that they can have the opportunity to check that their courses for next year are correct and also to make any minor changes to these selections. Please be aware that timetables cannot be changed after this point except for the following 3 reasons:
