For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope. — Jeremiah 29:11 Loving God, you invite me to rely on your goodness as I prepare for high school and my future. Help me to trust in the plans you have for me that I may readily commit to the unique tasks to which you call me as your beloved child. Spirit of God, you are the source of wisdom and understanding. Guide and fill me with your grace as I set out to discern and identify the skills and interests that will direct my educational and career paths. Sustain me in my efforts to develop that I may become an engaged and successful life-long learner who brings you glory.
Lord Jesus, you invite me to learn from your gentle and humble heart. Teach me your ways that, as I live and learn in our Catholic faith, my life might be rooted in love and mercy and I may contribute to the building of a school community that is marked by the spirit of the Gospel. Amen

DEAR STUDENTS: The Calgary Catholic School District (CCSD) is a learning community that is dedicated to providing each and every student with the high-quality education they deserve. We are committed to ensuring every student has the opportunity to succeed. High school is an important chapter in your education and the three years spent in senior high will be a jour- ney of self-development and discovery. To prepare you for this exciting new chapter in your life, CCSD has developed Footprints to Your Future: a Guide to High School. This guide will help identify subjects of interest to you, and determine what courses and careers might suit your goals.
Selecting courses, which can have a significant influence on post-secondary options and career choices fol- lowing your high school years, might seem overwhelming at first. When making course selections, consider your talents, interests, skills and strengths carefully. There are no right or wrong decisions when it comes to course selections; however, it is important to keep possible career aspirations and future goals in mind. We encourage you to work collaboratively with your family as you make these selections. If you are planning to attend college or university, it is important to obtain the necessary information regarding admission requirements into post-secondary programs and tailor your course selections accordingly.
Plan- ning to seek employment immediately after high school is also something you should seek information about in order to ensure you have the requirements to pursue this goal. Support from teachers, guidance counsel- lors and school administration is always available and can provide useful insight and information. Calgary Catholic is committed to providing diverse environments and pathways that meet the unique needs of all high school students. We believe the foundation of education will help you thrive in life, work and contin- ued learning. The future will hold many opportunities and challenges.
Wherever the next chapters in your life story may take you, we hope your journey includes joy, faith and fulfilment. As an organization dedicated to the education and empowerment of our students, we are proud of each and every one of you. I wish you the best in all your future endeavours.
Sincerely, Gary Strother Chief Superintendent Message from the Chief Superintendent Calgary Catholic School District 1 Footprints to Your Future 2018
“The Catholic school pursues cultural goals and the natural development of youth to the same degree as any other school. What makes the Catholic school distinctive is its attempt to generate a community climate in the school that is permeated by the Gospel spirit of freedom and love.” – (Second Vatican Council) Catholic Education Philosophy EDUCATION The goal of Catholic schools is to help develop students whose knowledge, skills and attitudes will prepare them to deal with the challenges of life and help them grow in understanding towards the teachings and traditions of the Church.
In our Catholic schools, faith and culture come together so that faith becomes an active and visible part of the lives of the students and staff – in what they study and in how they relate to one another. In a climate of openness, trust and cooperation, the school, the home and the parish work together to create an authentic community and sense of partnership. Students who choose to attend a Catholic high school will have the benefit of this authentic community.
THE CATHOLIC HIGH SCHOOL COMMUNITY A Shared Responsibility The Catholic academic tradition is strong in our schools. It remains strong through our students, our staff and our beliefs. Calgary Catholic School District teachers are role models for our students. They demonstrate Christian values in their daily teaching and in their contact with students, parents and other members of the community. These values are taught in Religious Education classes at every grade level and are reinforced in all subjects.
Opportunities for religious celebration and prayers are part of the overall program in each CCSD school.
Student are expected to be a contributing member of their high school community. When a young person chooses to attend a Catholic high school it signifies an acceptance of the teachings and values of the Ro- man Catholic tradition. These values are lived out when the student displays a serious attitude toward his or her academic studies, commitment to the goals of the school community, a willingness to participate in prayer and liturgical celebrations, respect for members of the community and a true sense of responsibility for his or her actions.
A chaplain is assigned to each high school. He/she brings theological knowledge to the school community and offers pastoral counselling to both students and teachers. All of our high schools have a chapel, which is open for private contemplation for all members of the school community and for the celebration of mass. 3 Footprints to Your Future 2018 Calgary Catholic School District
Students who have one or both parents/guardians who is/are Roman Catholic or students themselves have a Roman Catholic baptismal certificate, even if their parents do not present their proof of Catholicity, may register in a Calgary Catholic School District (CCSD) high school.
Students whose parents are both non-Catholic and they are non- Catholic may be admitted only if sufficient resources and facilities are available. It is important to note that as with our elementary and junior high schools, CCSD has designated high school attendance areas. CCSD uses boundaries to ensure optimal student populations that support vi- able programming across the district. It is the expectation that students will attend their designated high school based on the resident address of their parents/guardians.
CCSD has eight district recognized programs at various schools throughout the district. These programs are International Baccalaureate (English and French), Advanced Placement, Extended French, Spanish Bilingual, Bishop Carroll Self-Directed Learning, Bishop Grandin March- ing Band, Hockey Canada Skills Academy and Chamber Ensemble Strings program. Acceptance of students registering into one of these programs is based on specific program criteria, program qualifica- tions, room and resources. Acceptance into any of the programs is not guaranteed.
District recognized programs also have defined attendance areas.
If a student chooses to withdraw from a designated program for which an exemption to high school boundaries is granted, the expectation is that the student would return to his or her designated school. For example, a student is granted acceptance to the Hockey Canada Skills Academy at Notre Dame High School and lives in the regular attendance area for Bishop McNally. The student then withdraws from the Hockey Canada Skills Academy. The expectation is that he/she will return to Bishop McNally as this is the student’s designated high school-based on the resident address of his/her parent/guardian.
As well, if a student currently attends a year-round junior high program, the student will follow the guidelines for admission to high school. For example, a student attends the year-round junior high program at St. Joseph School. For high school, the student attends the high school in his/her attendance area based on the resident address of his/her parent/guardian. Furthermore, a student attending junior high outside of his/her atten- dance area will transition to the high school in the student’s attendance area unless he/she qualifies for and is accepted into a district desig- nated program at high school.
For example, a student lives south of Fish Creek yet attends St. Bonaventure Junior High, which is not his/ her regular attendance school. For regular programming, this student would attend Bishop O’Byrne High School, not Bishop Grandin High School. In another example, a student attends St. Helena for the Hockey Canada Skills Academy. The student does not plan to continue Guidelines for Admission in the Hockey Canada Skills Academy for high school. For regular pro- gramming, this student would attend the high school in his/her atten- dance area based on the resident address of his/her parent/guardian.
Registration of students for programs outside of their designated school are student specific. Siblings of students are not accepted un- less they qualify for one of the eight district recognized programs, and there is sufficient room and resources. For example, an older sibling at- tends St. Mary’s for International Baccalaureate. Younger siblings who do not live in the St. Mary’s High School regular attendance boundary area would not attend St. Mary’s unless they qualify for and are ac- cepted into one of the district recognized programs at St. Mary’s, such as International Baccalaureate or Extended French.

The courses are in- tended to provide students with opportunities to experience success and become well prepared for employment, further studies, active citizenship and lifelong learning.
Knowledge and Employability courses include and promote: • Workplace standards for academic, occupational and employ- ability skills • Practical applications through on-campus and off-campus expe- riences and/or community partnerships • Career development skills for exploring careers, assessing ca- reer skills and developing a career-focused portfolio • Interpersonal skills to ensure respect, support and cooperation with others at home, in the community and at the workplace Knowledge and Employability courses are designed to provide entry- level employment skills for students who have expressed a goal of leaving school before earning the requirements for an Alberta High School Diploma.
Some students may transition successfully from Knowledge and Employability courses to other courses to achieve their diploma or to continuing education and training opportunities (e.g., some colleges, some apprenticeship programs). Reviewing each student’s learning plans on an annual basis and adjusting their goals and courses as needed are important parts of the process. Recommended transition points from Knowledge and Employability courses to other courses are identified in the chart. The requirements indicated in this chart are the minimum require- ments for a student to attain a Certificate of High School Achieve- ment.
The requirements for entry into post-secondary institutions and workplaces may require additional courses. Footprints to Your Future 2018 6

Recognized Programs To meet the diverse needs of all students, some senior high schools offer a number of district recognized programs. Not all programs are available at all high schools.
A student who wishes to access one of these district recognized programs, outside of their school attendance area must meet specific criteria for the program. It is expected that students attending these programs need to register in a minimum of two classes in order to be accepted. These designated programs are listed below. Please inquire at your local school regarding specific attendance area for schools and programs. There may be exceptional circumstances where students are admitted to schools outside their attendance area. Students should speak with their junior high principal for further information.
High school attendance areas are also included in this booklet, beginning on page 55. Please be advised that Footprints To Your Future is printed at the beginning of each school year and changes to attendance area information may occur throughout the year after the document is printed. ADVANCED PLACEMENT (AP) The Advanced Placement (AP) program is a co-operative educational endeavour between second- ary schools, colleges and universities. AP allows high school students to take college level academic learning in AP courses and gives them the opportunity to show that they have mastered the advanced material by taking AP exams.
Students can receive credit, advanced placement, or both from thousands of colleges and universities that participate in the Advanced Placement program. Please check with your school counsellor for more details.
INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE (IB) DIPLOMA PROGRAMME Life in the 21st century, in an interconnected, globalized world, requires critical-thinking skills and a sense of international-mindedness, something that International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme students come to know and understand. Designed as an academically challenging and balanced program of education, IB Diploma Programme prepares students for success at university and beyond. The program is normally taught in grades 11 and 12, though students may enter honours courses in Grade 10 to help them better prepare for the program.

HIGH SCHOOL OUTREACH PROGRAMS The Calgary Catholic School District offers outreach programming for those students who find it challeng- ing to be successful in a tradi- tional learning environment. These outreach programs provide new and different opportunities for students to engage in learning environments that are based on individual student learning needs. They serve as alternative educational settings for students who require a different type of structured learning environment in order to assist them to engage in a delivery model at the high school level that is also linked to other academic and community supports.
For further information, students and parents should contact a guidance counsellor at their designated high school.
The Centres of Excellence chart lists programs offered at specific district high schools. Students may travel to other high schools to take these courses. Students can earn high school credits for these courses, and may also choose to write the external certification exam offered by an outside agency such as the Alberta Ap- prenticeship Board, Microsoft, etc. If interested in these programs, students can check with their high school counsellor or career practitioner. These programs are tentatively offered, based on student interest, teacher expertise and availability at the host school. A student accessing Centres of Excellence at a host school is still considered an enrolled student of their home school.

COUNSELLORS The counsellor provides services designed to assist students to solve problems related to choosing, planning, adjusting and achieving goals in educational, career, personal, social and spiritual areas. The counsellor provides counselling, student appraisal, referral and educational/occupational planning services in an attempt to meet the developmental needs of students.
The Catholic counsellor is concerned with all aspects of a student’s growth. The counsellor also accesses district and community programs to support students in all aspects of their development. TEACHER ADVISORS Each student is matched with a teacher who acts as mentor, liaison and advocate for the student. As mentor, the teacher guides students through program and course selection, career options and minor personal problems. As liaison, the teacher monitors and initiates communication between students, teachers, parents/guardians and school administrators. As advocate, the teacher assists students in conflict situations and promotes action plans that will benefit the student.
With this teacher advisory system, parents/guardians can contact a specific teacher who will have a personal involvement and special interest in their son or daughter.
SCHOOL CHAPLAIN School chaplains work with staff, administration and students to create and sustain a consistent, coherent Catholic educational environment for our school communities. Chaplains coordinate liturgical celebrations in the schools, act as a liaison between schools and Catholic parishes, chair their high school pastoral care teams, and deliver com- prehensive retreat programs for the students. They are available for pastoral counselling for both staff and students, providing an essential service in keeping spirituality an explicit component of Catholic education. SCHOOL RESOURCE OFFICER The Calgary Police Service, through its School Resource Officers (SROs), assigns a police officer to high schools in Calgary.
The officers are resource persons for anyone in the school community. They engage in a variety of activities in the schools, from formal classroom presentations to individual consultations with students. Officers also provide additional connections for referrals to many social service agencies as needed. SROs are an essential component of the support system in our district high schools.
CAREER PRACTITIONER Within the career centre at each high school, a career practitioner is available to help students make informed decisions about their futures. Using a variety of resources, the career practitioner helps students begin their journey toward discovering the opportunities available in today’s constantly changing world. Students may ask for assistance in career exploration activities, interest inventories, resume writing, job interview preparation and work experience programs.

Being aware of these will help you decide what you should study in senior high school and what career goals you should set for yourself.
Senior high school is also a good time to develop your abilities. What new abilities would you like to develop? What courses would most help you develop these new abilities? CONSIDER YOUR ABILITIES Take a realistic look at yourself and consider your abilities. Your marks and other accomplishments in junior high school, as well as your activities outside of school, may be an indication of your abilities. Your chances of success in senior high school will be greater if you build on these abilities. Some abilities are listed below, along with some related subjects. Check the abilities in which you are strongest and note the subjects that you could take to develop them.
Footprints to Your Future 2018 28
CONSIDER YOUR INTERESTS Certain subjects are associated with certain interests. School is more enjoyable when you study subjects you find interesting. Check the areas in which you are interested, and note the related subjects. The senior high school you attend may offer courses in subjects you have not studied before, so you may not know if you are interested in them. Your teacher or counsellor can tell you more about these courses. You may develop new interests as well as new abilities. building or fixing things computing creating and performing designing and creating languages arts numbers people science the world recreation and sports other construction technologies, electronics, mechanics, fabrication information processing, mathematics art, communication technology, drama, music, English language arts art, cosmetology, design studies, food and fashion studies, construction, fabrication English language arts, French and international languages art, drama, family studies, music financial management, information processing, mathematics biology, drama, psychology, sociology, legal studies, community health biology, chemistry, mathematics, physics financial management, social sciences, social studies, world geography, world history physical education 29 Calgary Catholic School District Footprints to Your Future 2018
SET YOUR CAREER GOALS Once you know your abilities, interests and values, you can set your goals. Short-term goals are the ones you hope to fulfil soon. It is also important to set long-term career goals for your future. You may need to revisit your goals several times throughout your high school career. Be open-minded when you think about your goals, and don’t put obstacles in your way. For example, if you are planning to continue studying after senior high school because you are uncertain about finding a job, maybe you first need to investigate potential jobs. Or, if you are planning to go right to work because you can’t afford to continue your studies, find out more about student loans and scholarships.
There may be financial assistance of which you are unaware.
Career planning is an ongoing process and will probably change over time. Thinking now about your career interests and options gives you a head start. Each of these short-term and long-term career goals should be consid- ered when selecting your senior high courses. Set Short-term Goals Volunteer Improve your marks Consider taking CTS courses Make sure you are taking the appropriate courses Explore various careers Other Set Long-term Career Goals Considering your abilities, interests and values, what are your long- term career goals?
Earning an Alberta High School Diploma To continue studying at a post-secondary institution, such as a university, college or technical institute To get a job or start my own business after graduation Enter a trade, become an apprentice Other creativity loyalty family opportunities to learn new things financial security popularity freedom resourcefulness friendliness risk-taking other acceptance helpfulness assertiveness honesty collaboration/ working in groups independence CONSIDER YOUR VALUES Think about the kind of person you want to be and the kind of life you want to live.
Your values play a role here. What is important to you? Check your values.
Footprints to Your Future 2018 30
ENTERING THE WORK FORCE If your long-term career goal is to work right after graduation, take a careful look at the workplace opportunities you may be consid- ering. What do you really know about the work? • Do you know what the work involves? • Does it involve the kind of tasks you will enjoy doing? • Do you know what kind of training is required? • Will you have the necessary knowledge and skills? • Do you know what the job has to offer? • Will it provide you with the job satisfaction, salary and benefits you are seeking? • Will there be job openings in your field when you gradu- ate?
• Will the job provide you with opportunities for advance- ment and personal growth? POST-SECONDARY EDUCATION If your long-term career goal involves studying at a post-secondary institution, you need to select your courses with the entrance require- ments of those institutions in mind. These requirements vary between institutions and among programs within institutions. For example, the faculty of arts may require that you have a second language in order to be admitted, while other faculties at the same institution may not. Each post-secondary institution sets its own requirements for entrance into their particular institution or program.
Many of these guides are located online.
Guides may also be available from your school counsellor, or by visiting www.alis.alberta.ca. Although most post-secondary institutions set a minimum average for admission, that average does not guarantee admission. Admission to most programs is highly competitive, which often means that students with the highest averages are the ones admitted. An Alberta High School Diploma does not guarantee admission to ANY post-secondary institution. The requirements for a high school diploma are not the same as the admission requirements to post-secondary institutions.
AFTER THINKING IT OVER...
Now you have a better idea of who you are and how that influ- ences your choices of programs and courses in senior high school and your future career goals. To summarize what you’ve done, you have: • Reviewed your abilities • Considered your interests • Identified your values • Thought about related courses • Set short-term goals • Set long-term goals Your teachers and school coun- sellor can assist you further. You may also want to talk to others who know you well: your parents, relatives and friends.

Course Descriptions Consider how your senior high school courses will be an important part of your faith journey as you discover and pursue the purpose for which God has created you. The vocations that people choose are the paths that seem the best way for them to live happily in the world and contribute to building the Kingdom of God. As you make your course selections consider carefully how God has gifted you as an individual with particular talents and abilities.
Consider how God is inviting you through your uniqueness to be a very special part of this plan to make known His love for all people on earth.
Religious Education (Roman Catholic) 15 - Christ and Culture The aim of Christ and Culture is to assist students, with the help of the Gospel, to participate as Christians in the shaping of our culture. The program explores major cultural issues from a Christological perspective. Beginning with their own life experiences, students acquire a deeper and more systematic knowledge of themselves, Christ’s message, and the Church. Connections between the Church and contemporary culture are explored in terms of what it means to be a responsible adolescent developing as a member of a Catho- lic, Christian community while living within the context of a broader culture.
Religious Education (Roman Catholic) 25 - Jesus Christ: God’s Gift of Salvation Jesus Christ: God’s Gift of Salvation invites students to deepen their relationship with Jesus through a prayerful study of Scripture. Students will explore the Jewish historical, religious, and cultural world into which the Messiah was born and the Old Testament covenant fulfilled. Using the Gospels as primary sources, the course explores Jesus’ birth, early life, and ministry; his preaching of the Kingdom of God; his special teachings, particularly the parables; and his miracles. It then focuses on the scriptural accounts of his death and Resurrection, and the Ascension, and their central significance for the church’s understanding of Jesus as the Christ, the Son of God.
Religious Education (Roman Catholic) 35 - In Search of the Good In Search of the Good challenges students to understand themselves as moral persons called to discipleship by living the way of Christ. Through an examination of ethical theories, the revelation of Sacred Scripture, and the lived experience and teaching of the Catholic Church, the course invites students to mature as active participants in their faith. At the heart of catechesis is the human search for happiness as the completion of the superabundant love of God. The same tension which exists between the revelation of God’s love and the explorations of human reason are worked out in the areas of freedom, justice, human relations, ecology, reconciliation, life in community and political life.
Religious Education 15, 25, 35 are expected courses in the Calgary Catholic School District’s senior high schools. Some high schools offer Religious Education for 3 and 5 credits. Completion of 9 full credits is required for participation in each local senior high school’s graduation exercises. “Go and Make Disciples”: Living the Great Commission is the Pro- gram of Religious Education (Ro- man Catholic) for Alberta Catholic Schools. In each course, RE 15, RE 25, and RE 35, the general outcomes are developed through specific learning outcomes, recom- mended resources, and teaching time frames.

English Language Arts Alberta Education requires that students obtain at least 15 credits in English Language Arts in either of two streams 10-1; 20-1; 30-1 or 10-2; 20- 2; 30-2. To obtain a Alberta High School Diploma, English Language Arts 30-1 or 30-2 is required. The dash one (-1) stream (English 10-1, 20-1, 30-1) is considered more challenging and is often required for admittance into universities. The dash two (-2) stream (English 10-2, 20-2, 30-2) is less challenging and can often be used at technical institutes and trades schools.
TRANSFER POINTS In the model, the solid arrows denote the typical pathways that students follow to progress from grade to grade. Students generally take the pre- requisite in a course sequence such as 10-2; 20-2; 30-2. The dotted arrows denote potential and transfer points from course sequence to course sequence with the bold dotted arrows being the preferred transfer point. Alberta Education states, “For students who require ELA 30-1 to enter a particular post-secondary program and are registered in the ELA 10-2; 20-2; 30-2 course sequence, the preferred transfer point to the other course sequence is at the 20 level.
It is recommended that students take ELA 20-2, transfer to the other sequence and take 20-1, and then take ELA 30-1. Students generally experience more success in ELA 30-1 fol- lowing this pathway.” Although the essential content of the ELA 10-1 and ELA 10-2 courses is similar (one-third of the specific outcomes incorporate identical expec- tations for each course sequence) some important differences are outlined below. These differences are found in two areas and are a matter of degree of emphasis: • The comprehension of literature and other texts in oral, print, visual and multi-media forms.
• The creation of oral, print, visual, and multi-media texts and the enhancement of clarity and artistry of communication. Alberta Education describes, “The ELA 10-1; 20-1; 30-1 course sequence provides a more in-depth study of text in terms of increased emphasis on textual analysis,” while “The ELA 10-2; 20-2; 30-2 course sequence provides for the study of texts at a variety of different levels of sophistica- tion to meet the needs of a student population that is more diverse in terms of student aspirations and abilities....” 33 Calgary Catholic School District Footprints to Your Future 2018

Alberta Education Guidelines Social Studies 10-4 (5 credits) This course is only for students entering Knowledge and Employability courses. Students will examine globalization, the process by which the world is becoming increasingly connected and interdependent. They will explore historical aspects of globalization, as well as the effects of global- ization on lands, cultures, human rights and quality of life. The infusion of multiple perspectives will allow students to examine the effects of global- ization on peoples in Canada and other locations, including the impact on Aboriginal Peoples and Francophone communities.
Students will develop skills to respond to issues emerging in a globalizing world, with particular emphasis on local environments and situations.
Community partnerships and the study of local and current events provide additional opportunities to enhance citizenship by connecting in-school experiences to everyday living experiences outside of school. Community partnerships may include inviting guest speakers into the classroom, host- ing cultural awareness activities, visiting community agencies/businesses and taking part in community events/activities. TRANSFER POINTS The arrows on the above list of courses show a number of sug- gested transfer points among the three streams. Students should se- lect the courses which best match their needs and abilities based on the recommendations of their teacher and guidance counsellor.
In order to accommodate students with a wide range of abilities, needs, interests and aspirations, two course sequences have been developed for this program: Social Studies 10-1; 20-1; 30-1; and Social Studies 10-2; 20-2; 30-2. Although the content, skills and attitudes are similar for these two sequences, the expectations for Social Studies 10-1, 20-1 and 30-1 are more challenging, particularly in the depth of concept and skill development. For example, Social Studies 10-1 students are expect- ed to develop the skills necessary for composing an argumentative essay. Social 10-2 students are expected to develop the ability to defend a position in a short written assignment.
The nature of the approved student resources differs for each sequence. Social Studies 10-4; 20-4 has been developed using the Knowledge and Employ- ability courses that are specifi- cally defined for students who are experiencing difficulty learning in their regular school courses. 35 Footprints to Your Future 2018
Mathematics Each student is required by Alberta Education to successfully complete a Grade 11 level course (Mathematics 20-1, Mathematics 20-2 or Mathematics 20-3) in order to obtain an Alberta High School Diploma. However, a 30 level math course is required for most post-secondary programs. Alberta Education states the following: 1. Students should choose courses based upon their abilities, interests and plans for post-secondary studies and potential career choices. Students who did not pass junior high school mathematics will not have the necessary prerequisite skills and knowledge to take Mathematics 10C and will need to enrol in Mathematics 10-3 when they begin senior high school.
2. Students choosing Mathematics 10C have two sequential options that follow: Mathematics 20-1 or Mathematics 20-2. These sequences are ideal for students considering post-secondary studies in most colleges and universities. 3. Students choosing Mathematics 10-3 follow the Mathematics 20-3 and Mathematics 30-3 course se- quence through Grade 11 and Grade 12. TRANSFER POINTS In the model, the solid arrows denote the typical pathways that students follow to progress from grade to grade. The dotted arrows are pathways the students may choose to take based on success or challenges from the previous course they completed.
Once a student is in high school the teacher is the best resource for parents and students to discuss transfers between courses and course sequences. Information regarding the Mathemat- ics curriculum can be found on the Alberta Education website at www.education.alberta.ca.

Diploma Programs Prepare students for employment in a particular field or group of occupations. Involve two years of full-time, applied study at a college or technical institute. Applied Degree Programs Are offered by some public col- leges and technical institutes; four-year programs (usually a two year diploma plus two additional years) consisting of six semesters (about one year) of related paid, supervised work experience in the industry. Alberta Journeyman Certificate (Apprenticeship) Programs Involve registered apprentices completing a specified number of on-the-job training hours and periods of formal instruction at one of Alberta’s training institutions, followed by examinations.
Certificate Programs Prepare students for entry into specific occupations. Involve one year or less of full-time, hands-on study at a college or technical institute. People sometimes use terms such as certificate, diploma, applied degree and degree to mean the same thing. However, there are some important differences in the way these words are used in Alberta's post-secondary education system. Post-Secondary Certificate, Diploma and Degrees Bachelor’s Degree Programs Are offered by universities and private institutions authorized to offer accredited degree programs. Involve the equivalent of three or four years of full-time study.
Master’s Degree Programs Involve a minimum of two years of full-time university study beyond the bachelor’s degree level. Require a bachelor’s degree for admission.
Doctoral Degree Programs Require two or three years of full- time university study and research beyond the master’s degree level. Involve planning and carrying out high quality research. Footprints to Your Future 2018 50
SUMMER SCHOOL Students looking for a way to get a head start on high school courses may wish to consider taking a course during the summer. Calgary Catholic School District offers core and non-core courses in different high school locations in July each year. Any student completing Grade 9 is eligible to take most Grade 10 courses in summer school.
These are condensed courses and offer students the option to complete a high school credit course within one month. Five-credit courses, normally completed in 125 hours during the regular school year, are con- densed to just 80 hours in summer school. In the same way, 3-credit courses, usually completed in 62.5 hours are completed in 48 hours.
For more information about summer school, see www.cssd.ab.ca/students/academic-services/summer- school or speak with your school guidance counsellor. RETURNING GRADE 12 STUDENTS Consistent with its authority under Section 45(4) of the School Act, the Calgary Catholic School District (CCSD) identifies St. Anne Academic Centre as the designated high school to which students requesting a fourth year of high school in the district are directed. St. Anne Academic Centre provides direct instruction classes, self-directed studies, online learning opportunities, work experience and apprenticeship programming, and home schooling options for students.
Students must be under the age of 20 by September 1st of the year they seek enrolment at St. Anne. Recognizing individual differences, St. Anne strives to meet the needs of students with flexibility and innovation in a safe and nurturing environment that provides individualized support for each student.
All fourth year high school students are expected to attend St. Anne Academic Centre if they wish to enrol in an additional year. However, when a returning Grade 12 student has been involved in and can benefit from the continuation of specialized programming, a student’s local school, in consultation with Calgary Catholic’s Instruc- tional Services department, may develop an alternative plan to meet the student’s needs through continuation at their local high school. The option to remain for a fourth year at a student’s local high school is only available in specific circumstances. The opportunity to remain at the local high school is granted at the sole discretion of the Calgary Catholic School District.
Students access this option through an application process determined at the local school level. The development of a plan for student success during a fourth year may involve: • continuation of specialized programming; • the use of a contract or specific instructional plan; • the development of a collaborative Individual Program Plan (IPP); • articulation of clear expectations, including processes for direction to other district programs, including St. Anne when necessary.
