Advanced Learning Strategies
All Grade 11 students take “Advanced Learning Strategies: Skills for Success After Secondary School” as a compulsory credit. This course ties in with our Adviser Program and improves students’ learning and personal-management skills, preparing them to make successful transitions to work, training, and/or postsecondary education. Students in this course investigate trends and resources to support their postsecondary choices and develop a plan to help them meet their learning and career goals.
Students looking to explore their career options can get hands-on experience and earn two diploma credits through Greenwood’s co-op program. Delivered through a Grade 11 course, co-op encourages students to investigate specific postsecondary choices based on their skills, interests and personal characteristics. Co-op includes a 120-hour placement with a local organization connected to students’ career goals.
We acknowledge with gratitude the Ancestral lands upon which our main campus is situated. These lands are the Ancestral territories of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, Anishinabek and the Wendake. The shared responsibility of this land is honoured in the Dish with One Spoon Treaty and as settlers, we strive to care for the land, the waters, and all creatures in the spirit of peace. We are responsible for respecting and supporting the enduring presence of all First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples. When away from this campus we vow to be respectful to the land by protecting and honouring it. We will create relationships with the people and the land we may visit by understanding the territories we enter and the nations who inhabit them.
