What is a good program of studies?

A good program of studies should meet individual needs, interests and career goals. This book is intended to help you make good decisions as you register for your high school program. The selection of appropriate courses involves a number of factors.

Your achievements - Try to make an honest assessment of your past achievements. You will have a greater chance of succeeding if you build on your strengths.

Your personal aptitudes, interests and needs - You are unique. By choosing according to your own particular interests and aptitudes, rather than those of your friends, you will probably enjoy your courses more and have greater success.

Your future plans - This book contains information about admission requirements to post-secondary institutions in Manitoba. Counsellors are available to give you other information about universities, colleges and schools that provide training in specific areas.

It is suggested that students ensure that they select all of their compulsory courses as well as a selection of option courses. A program of at least eight credits is suggested at the grade 10 level. Students are encouraged to take more courses than the minimum 30 required for graduation.


What are compulsory courses?

Compulsory courses are those courses in which Manitoba Education requires students to achieve a credit in order to graduate.

What are option courses?

In addition to the compulsory courses, other course selections must be made to complete a minimum of 30 credits for graduation. These courses may be selected from any of the options that the school makes available. These are listed under the Option Courses.
