As you start to consider your child’s interests and options for high school, we want to make you aware that all eight of our high schools offer Programs of Choice for secondary students – including career education, enrichment options, and sports academies. The programs are designed to give students the opportunity to excel in a specific area of interest while fulfilling their academic requirements. Many are offered in partnership with higher education institutions or industry. Additional information is available on the Burnaby School District’s website: www.burnabyschools.ca. Students who are currently in Grade 7 are also invited – along with their families – to attend a secondary open house and Career Education information session where they can learn more about the high school as well as Programs of Choice. More information about the evening sessions is in the attached flyer.
Students who will be in Grades 8-12 in the 2020-21 school year can apply for Programs of Choice and, if necessary, cross-district transfers during the month of February.
