Grade 9


** Please view the 2014-15 supply listing for the Grade 9 program. There is no supply listing for other grades **

​One of the main objectives of the Tec-Voc Grade 9 program is to have students make a smooth transition from middle school to high school. Tec-Voc Grade 9 is taught using a team approach to instruction, discipline and extra-curricular activities. Our home rooms allow staff to closely monitor and assess academic progress and student development. We also offer students a variety of learning experiences including: travel, intramurals, Youth in Philanthropy, Take Pride Mentorship, volunteerism, production involvement, skiing and cultural events. Students coming to Tec-Voc in Grade 9 must take 6 compulsory academic credits and 3 optional credits from the vocational or other optional courses listed below.
 
These are the course requirements for Grade 9.  They include:
 
​COURSE CREDITS​
​Language Arts 10F ​1 Credit
ELA Supplementary Credit​ ​1 Credit

The vocational courses in Grade 9 expose students to a variety of vocational areas before committing to a specific career area in Grade 10. Should students decide that vocational education is not for them, they can choose a regular academic grade 10 program.
