AP exams are subject specific exams set just above the Grade 12 level. They are written in May each year and are evaluated by the College Board on a scale from 1 to 5. A score of 3 is a pass and scores of 4 and 5 are very high. AP exams offer an enhancement of breadth and depth to the prescribed Ontario curriculum so they are ideal for students identified as gifted learners. The AP exam will give students an idea of what a university level exam is like. For scores 3 or higher it may be possible to be exempt from a first year university course in that subject area.

Suitable students are academically self-motivated and particularly strong in a subject area. Interested students should see Mr. MacKay for information Earn up to four credits towards your OSSD at a work placement while getting hands-on instruction from an expert.

Select early as availability can be an issue. Through BYOD click on Resources and then myBlueprint Once courses have been submitted online, students must print their Verification Form. Parents will review the selected courses and sign the Verification Form.

Return the signed Course Selection Verification form to your homeroom teacher by Thursday, January 17th. The Ministry of Education is encouraging all students to graduate in four years. Students are expected to be planning properly to graduate in 4 years and be ready and prepared for their chosen post secondary destination. All courses including summer school, night school, online courses and private school courses count towards the 34 credit threshold. Students who complete more than 34 credits within their first 4 years of secondary school are not impacted by this policy. Students with a formal IEP are exempt from the 34 credit threshold. Students who earn 30 credits and graduate are still eligible to return for one semester to upgrade marks.

Course changes for next year will be permitted based on availability. Students will need to submit a Course Change Request form to the Guidance Office. If a course change is required, it is advisable to do it as soon as possible to avoid disappointment as classes may be full.

If you are planning to take a course in summer school it is recommended that you do not select that course for next year. We would like your courses to be as correct as possible as we are not always able to accommodate changes. Drop in at lunch without an appointment to talk to a counsellor on duty OR Make an appointment through the Guidance Office Assistant to see your counsellor
