CTS Options

Career and Technology Studies (CTS) offer an alternative to conventional classroom learning. Courses emphasize “learning through doing” and are activity centered. Introductory courses are exploratory in nature to accommodate a variety of interests. Courses at the intermediate and advanced levels become more focused and develop skills suitable to more advanced studies. Each CTS course has a value of 1 credit. CTS courses in grade 10 are offered during 1 block of time and students typically get 5 or 6 credits depending on the number of courses they complete. Some intermediate and advanced CTS courses are offered for an entire morning or afternoon. In this case, students are able to earn 10 or 11 credits.
