Guide to High School

Textsize
A+ A-

Success in high school can be achieved in many ways. One thing we know is that once in school, you need to focus on your studies. You should set yourself up for success by selecting courses that build on your interests and strengths. Participating in clubs, teams or other extracurricular activities will also help you to be successful. We encourage you to make wise choices and access the various courses and programs that can lead to apprenticeship, college, community living, university, or the workplace.

Keep your Individual Pathway Plan in Career Cruising up to date, and use this information to help you choose courses, clubs, activities, teams and volunteer opportunities. Be sure to ask your teachers, guidance counsellors, student success teacher(s) and parents/guardian for help.

High school is a place for you to find and take ownership of your pathway, and that’s why we say:

Students are required to put together an Individual Pathway Plan (IPP). Students will document and learn about career/life planning using Career Cruising. Career Cruising is an Internet-based career exploration and planning tool used to explore career and post-secondary options that will help you develop a career plan. All grades 7 to 12 students will use this tool to develop an Individual Pathway Plan by exploring the following topics:

No matter what your post-secondary destination is, the opportunity to explore the world of work during high school will develop new employability skills, and provide potential networks for community service and job opportunities. These experiences may introduce you to the job of your life.

There are 5 destinations:

Apprenticeship

Apprenticeship is a practical way of learning, and includes a combination of on-the-job training and classroom instruction. Apprentices are paid while gaining work experience, and wages increase with skill levels.

Apprenticeship leads to a career and a Certificate of Qualification in one of over 150 ‘apprenticeable’ occupations in Ontario. Many of these occupations are called ‘Red Seal’ trades, which are recognized across Canada. Apprenticeships are organized into the four sectors:

  • Construction (electricians, general carpenter, plumber, etc.)
  • Industrial (welder, general machinist, tool and die, etc.)
  • Motive Power (auto service, autobody, truck and coach, etc.)
  • Service (hairstylist, cook, child and youth worker)

How long does an apprenticeship take?

To become a certified tradesperson, an apprenticeship usually lasts two to five years, depending on the occupation. Apprentices work for the majority of this time, and attend in-school training, usually at a local community college. Apprentices pay a nominal fee to attend the in-school portion of their training.

Consider Apprenticeship if you possess some of these qualities:

  • enjoy learning by doing
  • have good mechanical and spatial abilities
  • enjoy fixing things, assembling and disassembling things
  • have an ability to solve problems
  • enjoy determining why something does not work, or how it can be done better

College

College programs provide an effective combination of real life applied skills and quality theoretical education.

College leads to careers such as journalist, police officer, dental hygienist, engineering technologist, paralegals and many others. Community colleges offer programs in Applied Arts, Business, Health & Human Services and Technology.

How long does college take?

Colleges have certificate, diploma, graduate certificate, applied degree and some joint college/university programs. Programs usually take one to three years to complete.

Consider college if you:

  • enjoy and are successful with ‘hands-on’ applied curriculum
  • enjoy smaller classes and a personal approach to instruction
  • have specific career goals that require college education
  • are interested in developing technical and occupational skills required for your chosen career area

Community

The Community Pathway has been identified for students with special education needs, who are primarily accessing non-credit courses leading to a Certificate of Accomplishment. In some cases, students may be working toward an Ontario Secondary School Certificate (OSSC), which requires 14 credit courses. A few students may access specialized college programs such as CICE (Community Integration through Co-operative Education).

The pathway to community leads to having a meaningful life in the community that may involve multiple components like employment, volunteerism, leisure, and/or further education, (this might include less ‘formal’ training in areas such as life skills, safety, etc.) Young people are, supported to experience a variety of roles in their community.

University

Universities offer degree programs that are more theoretical, in areas such as General Arts, Sciences and Business.

University leads to careers such as teacher, engineer, doctor, accountant and lawyer.

How long does university take?

Students in university obtain bachelor degrees, master’s degrees and doctorate degrees, ranging from three to ten years of study. Universities also offer continuing education and certificate programs for specific occupations.

Consider university if you:

  • enjoy abstract concepts associated with course material
  • enjoy academic and theoretical learning
  • enjoy independent learning
  • have specific career goals that require a university degree

Workplace/Employment

Many careers require a high school diploma for direct entry. These jobs usually include specific on-the-job training after you start. Opportunities exist in many economic sectors including Arts & Culture, Construction, Business, Health & Wellness, Hospitality & Tourism, Manufacturing, Agriculture, Landscaping, etc. HWDSB offers several “School to Work” Programs.

Some students who choose direct entry to work may later pursue apprenticeship, college and/or university.

Consider direct entry to work if you:

  • have developed practical and essential workplace skills that have prepared you for a specific career without needing to pursue college, university or an apprenticeship first
  • have been successful in workplace pathway courses or programs, and wish to explore workplace opportunities
  • want to gain work experience and/or earn money before continuing post-secondary education
  • have specific career goals in mind that allow you to go directly to the workplace for on-the-job training

As a high school student, there are specific requirements to earn your diploma. However, depending on the courses you select, your school day can look very different from your friends. With so many different choices available, you have the opportunity to find your passion and choose your path, your way.
