What is a Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM)?

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 (OSSD). The SHSM

also assists students in their transition from secondary

school to apprenticeship training, college, university or

the workplace.
