Required Course Loads

Students who take a full schedule of courses are more likely to earn a High School Diploma (100 credits) or Certificate of Achievement (80 credits) within three years.

To set the stage for success, students at James Fowler High School strive for more than the minimum number of credits. In most cases, students can earn 113 credits as they are required to register as follows:

  • Grade 10 – 8 courses
  • Grade 11 – 7.5 courses
  • Grade 12 – 7 courses

It is important to note that students who are registered as part time students (2 courses per semester) are not allowed to be on school property during school hours when they are not in class

Study Periods (Spares)

Students in grades 11 or 12 may have study periods (spares) included in their schedule. Student timetables are attached to the back of student ID cards. ID cards must be presented upon request to any James Fowler staff member.

Study Periods should be used for achievement oriented activities. Students with a scheduled study period are expected to spend the time quietly completing assignments or studying in the library or student centre. Students must remain in the school during study periods. Any student leaving school property during class time must sign out at the office. No card playing is allowed during study periods.
