Counsellors will follow their students from Grade 8 through to Grade 12.
Considerable effort has been made to offer courses that provide alternatives for students so that they may meet graduation requirements and also concentrate on areas of special interest. Students are required to take a minimum of 80 credits in Grades 10, 11 and 12. Academically inclined students should take a program which is balanced but also geared toward their post secondary focus. Students in Grades 11 and 12 who are interested in vocational programs such as technical studies, fine arts, business education, and home economics must meet specific program requirements that go beyond Ministry minimums. All students should take note of post-secondary prerequisite courses when making long-range plans.
Every student will have an individual timetable which must operate within the framework of facilities, staff availability, time allotments, graduation requirements( Ministry of Education and post-secondary institution regulations), and student choice. Timetabling of student choice is done by computer. Because there is a wide choice of courses, offered, a number of "conflicts" may occur in the timetabling of students' first choice subjects. These conflicts will not prevent development of a graduation program, but may affect the choice of course within a subject area - (two courses offered only once falling in the same time period). Every effort will be made to provide students with the courses desired. Parents who are concerned about course selection are invited to contact the appropriate counsellor. There will be a Course Planning Night for parents in early February of each year. Please consult the current calendar to confirm the exact date.
All students in Grades 8 through 11 must take eight courses at Point Grey.
All students in Grade 12 must take seven courses at Point Grey. The task for now is to plan your courses carefully and ensure a great start to your next school year.
The Graduation Program requires all students to write the following exams:
(These previous four exams are worth 20% of the student's final mark.)
