How to use the Choices: Secondary School Course Selection and Planning Guide

In January, students and families will have access to the Choices: Secondary School Course Selection and Planning Guide. This guide contains important information that will help you understand the concept of destination planning and the importance of knowing your interests and abilities and connecting them to opportunities available during and beyond secondary school.

Choices also contains information about course types and reminds you of the diploma requirements. It also explains other relevant opportunities that will be available to you as a senior student.

Course descriptors can be found at The descriptor tells you a bit about what you can expect to learn in that subject. In senior years, it tells you what the prerequisites are (subjects you must have successfully completed).
Requirements ensure that you are prepared. If the course descriptor does not tell you enough about a course, ask your counsellor for as much information as you need in order to make an informed decision about your plan. The myBlueprint* Education Planner also has all of this information.

Sample Course Descriptor

The course descriptors can be found on the school charts on the website or inside myBlueprint.
