High School Information

 

Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedules to look through the guidance section of our school website. The information provided below should help answer some of your questions with respect to your child's high school registration. In most cases, all of the work will be done by our staff here at the school. There are, however, some unique circumstances where parents will be more involved in the registration process, but we will make every effort to support you in whatever way we can. Please read the following highlights of what's to come with respect to the registration process for high school.

Option forms and course calendars will be distributed to all grade 8 students in early to mid January.

Workshops with homeroom teachers and the guidance counsellor will be provided to each grade 8 class to guide students through completing option forms.

Every student will complete and submit their home, public high school option form regardless of whether they are applying to a regional program, or are planning on attending a Catholic secondary school.

Completed option forms must be filled out, reviewed and signed by parents, and returned in early February (dates will be specified when option forms are handed out)

Any students who are planning on attending a Catholic secondary school must obtain registration information and option forms from the school themselves. We will assist students in completing these option forms but we cannot provide any further registration assistance.

Frequently Asked Questions:

1. What if my son/daughter wants to go to another secondary school that is not their home school?

There is a process that must be followed which is outlined in the course calendar that your child will receive in January. This process will also be explained to your child in the workshop provided by the guidance counsellor.

2. What regional programs are offered in high school and how do I know they are right for my child?

There are a number of regional program offered at various Secondary Schools in the Peel District School Board. If you or your child is interested in obtaining more information about a specific program, please click on the Regional Secondary School Programs link on the main guidance page for more detail. 

2. My child has applied to a regional program. Why do I have to fill out their home high school option form?

There is no guarantee that any child will be accepted into a regional program. As a result we must ensure that everyone has filled out an option form for their home high school so that they do not miss out on class options due to late entry. 

3. What do we do if we have decided to send our child to our local Catholic secondary school?

This is done at the discretion of the parent but you, the parent, are responsible for going to that school to register your child and get an option form for them to fill out. We will help your child choose the correct options, but we cannot register them for you.

4. My child has been accepted into a regional program or we have registered at a local Catholic secondary school, now what do we do?

It is vital that you inform our school as soon as possible. This is done for two reasons. First, at the end of each year we must send your child's Ontario School Record to their high school. If our records do not reflect any changes, it will automatically be sent to their home high school. If this happens, it may take a great deal of valuable time to track it down and have it sent to the correct school. Secondly, in order for your child to be transitioned in the Student Information System for September, a code must be entered for their high school. If the code does not match the school then their electronic file cannot be accessed by their new school. Please, make sure that you or your child informs us of any changes in their high school for grade 9, and if this occurs during the summer months make sure to call the school in September.

5. My child is either in the enhanced program or ISSP program at school and we want them to be in the same program in high school, what do I do to make sure this happens?

Our special education staff and enhanced learning teachers will be in contact with you regarding this process. It is our goal to make sure that every child's educational needs are met regardless of what high school they will be attending in September. To this end we ensure that all ISSP and enhanced learning students are afforded the necessary arrangements for enrolling in high school.

If at any time you have questions regarding the process, or would like to make an appointment to see me, please call the school at (905) 278-7287.
