From a broad, varied selection of required courses and options, each student is encouraged to choose a personal program of studies. This program should provide the student an opportunity to develop individual abilities and skills, explore interests, prepare for future goals and gain insights into self understanding.
In addition to the traditional academic courses, our students have the opportunity to enroll in programs such as Advanced Placement, Music, Performing Arts, Visual Arts, Leadership, Languages, Special Education, Life/Work Planning, English as an Additional Language, Video Production and various technical programs at Manitoba Institute of Trades and Technology.
Our commitment to nurturing the potential for growth in all students extends beyond the classroom. Students are encouraged to become active members of the school community through extra curricular activities in athletics, music, cultural arts, theatre, student government, debating, publications and a wide variety of clubs. It is our belief that students have a more rewarding and enriched experience if they are involved in school activities. To that end Fort Richmond Collegiate offers a wide array of extra-curricular opportunities for our students.
The Pembina Trails School Division is committed to the International Student Program. Fort Richmond Collegiate is fostering the program to enhance our international awareness and language programs. Through this program, we hope to provide our students with international study experiences and a greater global perspective.

This is an exciting time to be a student at FRC!
Information Technologies are an important part of the numerous courses offered.
