University and College Preparation

Students in this program will complete an application. The Specialist High Skills Majors (SHSM) is a new program offered at Etobicoke C.I. as a part of the Student Success Strategy initiative, which focuses on expanding quality learning opportunities and supporting success for all students. The SHSM is a Ministry-approved specialized program that allows students to focus their learning on a specific economic sector while meeting the requirements for the Ontario Secondary School Diploma. This career-focused program is also designed to help prepare students to make the transition from secondary school to apprenticeship training, college, university, or the workplace. A SHSM program enables students to gain sector-specific skills and knowledge in the context of engaging, career-related learning environments and helps them focus on graduation and on pursuing their postsecondary goals. Please pick up an application from your guidance counsellor.
