2 Important Date Friday, February 28 th (Block 1) Course Selection Sheets Due Course Selection sheets submitted after they are due (after Block 1), should be submitted to the General Office.

3 Our Vision Statement MEI Secondary is a Christ-centered school which provides a broad spectrum of educational opportunities for the purpose of building community and preparing our students for a life of service. “Heaven’s calendar has seven Sundays a week. God sanctifies each day. He conducts holy business at all hours and in all places. He uncommons the common by turning kitchen sinks into shrines, cafes into convents, and nine-to five workdays into spiritual adventures.” Max Lucado (Cure for the Common Life) Max Lucado (Cure for the Common Life)

4 Purpose of Course Planning To help students make wise decisions regarding:  completing MEI and B.C. Ministry of Education (Dogwood) Graduation requirements  choosing courses that will help prepare them for life after high school  taking advantage of opportunities to use gifts and strengths, to further develop potential and to serve God and others “You cannot be anything you want to be. But you can be everything that God wants you to be”. Max Lucado

5 Top 10 Factors to Consider in Course Planning 1. MEI grade promotion criteria 2. MEI Graduation Program requirements 3. MEI course pre & co-requisites 4. Keeping your post-secondary options open 5. Future career plans & life goals 6. University or College entrance requirements 7. Individual academic strengths & weaknesses 8. Individual interest, ability and spiritual giftedness 9. Exploration of a variety of educational experiences 10. Time and Resources to live a balanced life

6 Helpful Resources  Parents  Course Calendar calendar.pdf calendar.pdf calendar.pdf  Teachers and Student Services Counsellors  Other Trusted Adults - eg. grandparents, youth pastor etc.  The Bible and Prayer  Online Resources – see pages in Course Calendar “You do something no one else does, in a manner no one else does it. And when your uniqueness meets God’s purpose, both of you will rejoice… forever.” “You do something no one else does, in a manner no one else does it. And when your uniqueness meets God’s purpose, both of you will rejoice… forever.” Max Lucado Max Lucado

39 Financing Post-Secondary Education  Personal Savings  Passport to Education (Gr. 10 – 12)  Awards  Parents  Provincial & Canada Government Student Loans

40 Why Talk about Scholarship & Bursary Awards Prior to Grade 12?  Many award donors / organizations are interested in an applicant’s achievements and school/community involvements not only in grade 12, but also prior to grade 12.  Some donor organizations require membership the year prior to applying for their award. eg. Envision Financial Education Award  Planning ahead and implementing new initiatives in grade 11 and 12 is likely to give an applicant a better chance of receiving an award. (Having balance in life is however, an important factor to consider when working toward scholarships.) eg. Volunteering to tutor is great, but recognizing a need for a tutoring program in an “inner-city” Abbotsford school, initiating a tutoring program and finding all of the volunteers and putting the program in place is better. eg. Volunteering to tutor is great, but recognizing a need for a tutoring program in an “inner-city” Abbotsford school, initiating a tutoring program and finding all of the volunteers and putting the program in place is better.
