There are many paths students may take to completing their high school education. These include:

  • a high school diploma
  • a Certificate of High School Achievement through Knowledge and Employability Courses.
  • a Certificate of Achievement through Integrated Occupational Program
  • a high school equivalency program.

The province tracks the percentage of Grade 10 students completing high school in three, four or five years. The percentage reported includes these four types of accreditation.

Priority 1

Student Growth and Success

Foster growth and success for every student by supporting their journey from early learning through high school completion and beyond.

Goal Three

Success beyond schooling

Outcome: More students complete high school and are connected to career pathways that support their transition to post-secondary studies or the world of work.

Why is it important?

More than ever, young people are facing increasingly complex decisions as they build their awareness, understanding and commitment to potential life pathways.

The District has a role to play in providing opportunities for students to develop the foundational knowledge, competencies and attitudes to successfully participate in post-secondary and the world of work. High school completion is essential to supporting this outcome.
