You Should Have… Registration booklet Registration Form Pen or pencil
General Reminders A minimum of 24 credits are required to be completed in the province of Saskatchewan in order to be eligible to graduate. Among the 24 are selected compulsory (required) courses and electives (classes you choose to take).
General Reminders Taking the minimum 24 credits may allow you to graduate, but does not ensure you will meet the requirements for post-secondary (university, technical schools, etc) programs.
General Reminders Each class you pass earns you 1 (one) credit toward the 24 you need as a minimum to graduate. During the year, a student at SHHS can earn 10 credits. If you are part of Band, High Performance, or other specialty classes, you may be able to earn more.
General Reminders At Sacred Heart, Grade 11 students are not required to take a full course load, but a minimum of 8 credits should be completed. Students in Gr. 11 must enroll in a minimum of 4 credits to be eligible for recommends & Honor Roll in Semester 1.
General Notes Credits recognized at the Grade 10 level end in “10”. Credits recognized at the Grade 11 level end in “20”, and credits recognized at the Grade 12 level end in “30” Eg. Christian Ethics 10 = Gr. 10 Christian Ethics 20 = Gr. 11 Christian Ethics 30 = Gr. 12
General Notes Credits that end in the number “1” recognize a modified program of study (eg. Math 11) Credits that end in the number “8” recognize an alternate program of study (eg. Math 18) Modified and alternate courses allow students to graduate, but will limit some post-secondary options.
General Notes Approval from SHHS administration, guidance department, and consultation with families must be completed before a student will be registered in a Modified or Alternative class.
General Notes A “prerequisite” is a course you are required to successfully complete before you can take another course. Eg. Science 10 is the prerequisite for taking Biology 20, Chemistry 20, Physics 20, Computer Science 20.
Compulsory Classes In Grade 11 at SHHS, the following classes are required: Christian Ethics 20 or Education Chretienne 20 ○ As part of our Christian Ethics courses, a Service component is required.
Compulsory Classes Note that in order to be eligible to participate in the Graduation Ceremonies at Sacred Heart High School, a student must have successfully completed a Christian Ethics course for each year they have attended SHHS.
Compulsory Classes In Grade 11 at SHHS, the following classes are required: English 20 Note: It does not matter what semester a student completes the English 20 credit. It is, however, the prerequisite for English A30 and B30.
Compulsory Classes Gr. 10Gr. 11Gr. 12 Eng B10 Eng 20 Eng A30 Eng B30 Eng A10
Compulsory Classes While some Gr. 11 students may wish to take English 20 in Semester 1, and one of the English 30 credits in Semester 2, their placement is conditional based on requests from Gr. 12 students.
Compulsory Classes For example, English A30 in Semester 2 has 35 students who wish to register. Of the 35, there are 5 Gr.11 students. Priority is given to Gr. 12 students.
Compulsory Classes As in English, students in Gr.11 who wish to register for the Canadian Studies History 30 credit are also placed on the basis of Gr. 12 priority.
Compulsory Classes French Immersion students (who are not registered in Pre- Advanced Placement Language Arts) are required to take English 20 AND Francais 20.
Compulsory Classes Students must complete A MINIMUM of one of the following Social Science options: History 20 Native Studies 20 Law 30 Psychology 30 French Immersion students are required to take Histoire 20
Compulsory Classes In order to graduate currently, students must complete both a 10-level and 20- level Math credit as a minimum. Be aware that many post-secondary programs require at least one 30-level Math.
Compulsory Classes Math Pre-AP Gr. 10Gr. 11Gr. 12 Foundations of Math & Pre- Calculus 10 AP Pre-Calculus 20 AP Calculus 30AP Workplace & Apprenticeship Math 10 OR FMPC 20AP Pre-Calculus 30 AP Calculus AP Prep
Compulsory Classes For students enrolled in Pre-AP Math, you should register for: Pre-Calculus 20 AP Pre-Calculus 30AP
Compulsory Classes Science Requirement A minimum of ONE of the following credits is required to graduate: ○ Biology 20 OR 30 ○ Chemistry 20 ○ Physics 20 OR 30 ○ Computer Science 20
Compulsory Classes ○ Biology 20 is not a prerequisite for Biology 30, but it is highly recommended. ○ Chemistry 20 is the prerequisite for Chemistry 30
Compulsory Classes ○ Physics 20 OR any of the “new” Math 20 credits OR Math A30 is required for taking Physics 30 ○ Computer Science 20 is the prerequisite for Computer Science 30
Compulsory Classes ○ Note that most universities and more and more technical schools require at least one 30-level Science credit (generally in the 70%+ grade range), depending on the program).
Compulsory Classes Wellness 10 / Phys Ed 20 / 30 To graduate in the province of Saskatchewan, students MUST complete Wellness 10 or Phys Ed 20 or 30.
Electives RANK (ie. 1 = first preference ) your electives.
Electives Beyond the 10 credits available in the regular day, you may select Band as an early morning option. If you wish to apply for Rock Band and / or High Performance, select those credits at the bottom of the page.
Electives If you wish to apply for courses offered at YRHS, please note that at the bottom of your registration form. Note that these courses are offered on a first come, first served basis; there are limited seats available; a priority is made on students completing compulsory courses before electives.
Next Steps Later this week, you will be called to one of the computer labs to enter your selections online. You will need your Maplewood password information to do so. Once you have entered your requests, print the confirmation form and have your parents sign the approval.
Next Steps Be sure you have completed all Gr. 10 compulsory credits. If you are unsure of your total number of credits, or have questions, book an appointment with Mrs. Shearer, Mr. Senger, or me ASAP!
Remember Many post-secondary programs grant conditional acceptance of students based on their Grade 11 marks!
