Career & Technology Studies

CTS Credits

Due to prerequisite module requirements, not all modules in these courses grant credits at the same grade level as the course. For example, an advanced 30-level course meant for Grade 12 students may contain modules at the intermediate 20-level, and completion of such modules will result in a student earning Grade 11 (not Grade 12) credit.

If you would like to confirm if a CTS course will fulfill certain graduation requirements, please contact Student Services.
