Programs of Choice

Information for All Families
As you start to consider your child’s interests and options for high school, we want to make you aware of the many opportunities at the high school level for students in Burnaby. 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. Please see the flyer, here, for information about specific programs.

Information for Grade 7 Families
Students who are currently in Grade 7 are invited – along with their families – to view information virtually at their catchment high school where they can learn more about the school, as well as Programs of Choice. More information about the online sessions can be found here. Students who will be in Grades 8-12 in the 2021-22 school year can apply for priority placement in Programs of Choice and, if necessary, cross-district transfers during the month of February.
