Complementary Courses

Ensuring you are on the right stream to satisfy Alberta High School Diploma requirements, reaching your post secondary entrance goals and, of course, taking classes you like are all easier with a counselor's help. However, it's best that you know as much information as possible so read the following carefully.

Each class that you take in high school can be categorized either as a compulsory or complementary course. A complementary course, unlike a core course, has the aspect of choice. 

Grade 10

Although Grade 10 students must choose a complementary course (to eventually satisfy the requirement of 10 credits in this area), you can choose to take these credits (or more) from a large list of subjects which cater to a student's individual desire, goals and interests.

Students in their Grade 10 year should choose to do one five-credit complementary course or two three-credit complementary courses. 

Grade 10 students will not be granted class changes for complementary classes. The only class changes made for Grade 10 students are those that involve changes to academic classes based on final report card marks in June.

Yoga 35 – (3 or 5 credits)

Prerequisite: Yoga 25

This course is to further develop the understanding of all aspects of yoga, including the anatomy, physiology, philosophy, historical origins and styles of yoga as they are practiced around the world today.  Students will develop an enhanced appreciation for, and acceptance of, their own body and its limitations.  Students will learn to be non-judgmental about their own, and others’, yoga practices.  The program is designed to allow students to experience the benefits of increased flexibility, strength, focus and concentration.  They will relieve stress, learn to relax at will, and experience the health benefits of yoga.  Students must provide their own yoga mat.
