Independent Study


A community service student-initiated project credit
Students can make a contribution by volunteering for worthwhile causes or organizations.  The civic skills, knowledge and attitudes obtained from such community service activity can increase a student’s self esteem and maturity, and provide more awareness of the needs of others in the community.  A credit may be available to a student who completes 110 hours in such activity. If you are interested, see the career advisor or your councillor for details.

Army Reserve Co-Op is a career exploration program run jointly between Sisler High School and the Canadian Forces.  It is designed to assist you in deciding if the Canadian Forces is a career option.  If you are accepted into the program you will undergo basic military training while also being paid for your time.  Completion of the course will grant you two high school credits.  In the process you will have been exposed to the 107+ career opportunities in the Canadian Forces.  Upon completion, you have the option of applying to join the Regular Force and to use the Army Reserve Co-Op as a stepping stone to a career in the military.  See your counsellor for details.

The program offers a wide range of activities.  Each activity has a standard of achievement. The Manitoba Department of Education recognizes cadet training as a form of education.  As a result, cadets can earn two extra education credits.  One credit will be granted upon completion of the red star program and a second credit will be granted upon completion of the gold star examinations.  These two credits will be recognized only as additional credits beyond the minimum credits for school graduation.  See your counsellor to apply.

Students may acquire up to four credits for private music lessons.   Students must bring copies of theory and practical exam results to their Guidance Counsellor to receive credits.
