General Course Information (FAQs)

What are credits?

Credits are awarded for the successful completion of a course (minimum 50%). A subject taken for a full semester is normally worth 5 credits. A subject using half this time may be awarded 3 credits. Career and Technology Studies (CTS) coursework awards individual credits for specific modules throughout a course. Credits can be earned only once in any one course.

How are high school courses identified?

In most cases, high school courses are numbered so that Grade 10 classes are numbered in the 10s, e.g., Social 10-1, Science 10, Math 10C

Grade 11 classes are numbered in the 20s, e.g., ELA 20-1, Science 24, and Art 20.

Grade 12 classes are numbered in the 30s, e.g., Chemistry 30, Math 31, and Work Experience 35.

Career and Technology Studies courses are named by level: introductory, intermediate, and advanced.
