Specialist High Skills Majors (SHSM) are bundles of 8-10 courses that allow Grade 11 and 12 students to focus their learning on a specific economic sector while getting their high school diploma. SHSMs provide students with an opportunity to focus their learning and gain valuable experience for all post-secondary opportunities. The SHSM program has a number of required components, designed to give students a leg-up to pursue post-secondary opportunities in a variety of employment sectors. Students will also earn industry-recognized certifications, which builds confidence in their skills and links their studies with the world beyond high school and future careers.
