Course Planning Guide

Please note that the Course Planning Guide for 2017/18 will be updated in January 2017 and will include all updated Ministry curriculum and graduation requirements.

South Delta Secondary operates on a Day 1/Day 2 alternating timetable.  Each student takes eight courses (four on each day).  Most courses are year-long (100 hours). The determination of the elective courses to be offered in any given year is based almost entirely on student requests. It is essential that students select their courses carefully because once the timetable is created, it becomes extremely difficult or, in some cases impossible, to make course changes. While students will have opportunities to receive guidance from counsellors in determining which courses best suit individual needs, each programme of studies is the responsibility of the student and the parent.  All students entering Grades 10, 11 and 12 should check course requirements for post secondary programmes. Information is available in the Career Resource Centre and on various websites!
