Academic Guidelines

High School Completion 

Students at Jack James have two options for completing high school: 

  •  Certificate of High School Achievement (80 credits) 
  • Alberta High School Diploma (100 credits)  

Which path students choose will depend on their goals following high school graduation.  Students will work with their Guidance Counsellor to identify entrance requirements for the post-secondary institution, career and/or trade of their choice, and then choose the path for high school completion that best meets their needs.  Students may transfer between the two completion strands, and may also complete both a High School Certificate and a High School Diploma. 

Certificate of High School Achievement 

A provincial Certificate of High School Achievement will be awarded to a student upon successful completion of the Senior High Knowledge and Employability (K&E) Courses.
