Grade 10 course codes start with the digit "1". The most academic courses (10 and 10-1) are intended for university-bound or college/technical program students. The 10-2 and 10-3 course sequence is designed for students planning to enter college, technical or trade school. The 20-3/24 courses are the minimum academic level that meets the Alberta High School Diploma requirements.
Students in Grade 10 are expected to enrol in courses totalling 40 or more credits. Courses offered are typically 5 credits (taught each day) or 3 credits (taught every other day). We encourage students to complete as many credits as possible in Grade 10 to ensure greater timetable flexibility in the subsequent years.
Academic Achievement Centre (AAC)
When a timetable cannot be filled with an assigned course, Grade 10 students will be assigned an AAC course. No Grade 10 students will have a spare.
The AAC time can be used to study for upcoming exams, homework, complete missed assignments or complete modular course work.
It is designed to develop learning strategies for Grade 10 students and support them in meeting graduation requirements.
Recommended Grade 9 Mark
The selection of Grade 10 courses is based on Grade 9 report card marks and teacher comments. To increase the probability of success, pick a course level recommended by your teacher or by the high school. Remember, plan for all three years of high school, not just one.
