WELCOME TO HIGH SCHOOL! Registration for Gr. 10
You Should Have: Registration booklet Registration Form Pen or pencil
General Notes 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 Notes 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 Notes 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 Notes At Sacred Heart, Grade 10 students are required to take a full-course load (ie. no spares) unless approved by administration. A student may be assigned a Help Room period to support their classroom learning.
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 10 at SHHS, the following classes are required: Christian Ethics 10 or Education Chretienne 10 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 10 at SHHS, the following classes are required: English A10 or English Pre-AP A10 English B10 or English Pre-AP B10 Note: It does not matter what order a student completes the 2 English credit requirements.

Compulsory Classes For students enrolled in Pre-AP Math, you should register for: Foundations of Math & Pre-Cal 10 AP AND ONE OF Foundations of Math 20 OR Workplace & Apprenticeship Math 10
Compulsory Classes Science 10 We suggest that students who are interested in taking most of the 20 and 30 level Science options take Science 10 Semester 1, and a 20-level Science Semester 2 (Bio, Chem, Phys, Comp. Sci.)
Compulsory Classes Wellness 10 To graduate in the province of Saskatchewan, students MUST complete Wellness 10 or Phys Ed 20 or 30. Unless approved, ALL gr. 10 students at SHHS are registered in the Wellness 10 credit.
Electives You should have a minimum of 7 credits selected. This may be 9 credits if you choose to take both Math 10 credits and Science 20. RANK (ie. 1 = first preference ) your electives to bring your total credits selected to 11.
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 Beginning next 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.
Remember You should consider your class selections carefully – you may not be able to change your schedule easily in the Fall. Registering for Gr. 10 classes does not mean you have currently met the requirements to be placed in Grade 10!
