As an independent school operating under the jurisdiction of Independent Schools Office of the Ministry of Education, British Columbia, CHS is approved to offer prescribed courses in the high school completion program. Upon fulfillment of the graduation requirements, students are awarded the Dogwood Diploma and can apply to universities throughout North America.
In the senior grades 10, 11 and 12, students must take courses from the core subject areas of Language Arts, Mathematics, Fine Arts, Science, and Applied Skills. The course selections should be geared toward students’ post-secondary goals. Advisors and counselors at CHS help students make the most appropriate choices in determining their best pathway to graduation.
Those students who arrive in Canada with insufficient English to start regular academic classes are placed in courses that will help them assimilate into the English-speaking classroom setting. These courses may include Board-Authorized Language Arts Development courses, and lower grade courses in science, mathematics, social studies and art. This will help to prepare them on the specific usage of terms and content of academic courses.
