Specialized Educational Pathways

Written by Brenda Truong

The beginning of the school year is traditionally a time for students, parents, and teachers to get acquainted with the learning expectations and to lay the groundwork for a productive school year for academic achievement, learning skills, and developing work habits.

For students graduating in elementary or middle school, however, the beginning of the school year is a time for transitional planning. It is during this time that parents should receive information about admissions for specialized program options, including:

  • Advanced Placement (AP) for enriched curriculum or advanced standing at university.
  • International Baccalaureate (IB) diploma for pre-university preparation and internationally recognized credits.
  • Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM) Program diplomas in Arts and Culture, Health & Wellness, Information’s and Communications Tech, Non-Profit

Parents can navigate these programs through their local school boards. See below for your regional school board options:

 

 

Students enrolled in these programs have the opportunity to benefit from tailored learning and development towards a future career path that matches their skills and interests. With a commitment to personalized instruction and mentorship, our tutors assist with preparation for pursuing these specialized educational pathways.
