Course Planning

Please consult our Course Planning Guide for details about courses, programs and more, including information on graduation requirements, athletics and clubs.  You will find descriptions for all of the courses offered at Point Grey Secondary School in this booklet.

For each grade, there is a different set of courses from which to choose.  Students in each grade meet with their counsellor in February to learn about these choices, the course requirements of that grade, and the timeline for the course selection process.  Course Planning Forms are completed, signed and submitted to the appropriate grade counsellor before the end of February.  Please see below for details, grade-by-grade. 

There is also a Course Planning Night for parents in early February.  Please check our School Calendar to determine the date for this school year.  Information similar to what is provided to students will be discussed with parents on that night.

Grade 8:  Grade 7 students select courses on the Grade 8 Enrolment Form distributed at their elementary school, or received in our school office in the case a student has been accepted for enrolment, but does not currently attend one of our three in-catchment elementary schools (Kerrisdale, Quilchena, Southlands).

Grades 9 - 12:  Students in each grade complete and submit the Course Planning Form for their next grade after discussion with their counsellor.  This form outlines requirements, choices and makes note of the precise due date for the current year.  Grade-specific Course Planning Forms can be accessed below.  In addition, Course Planning Presentations made in early February to parents at our Course Planning Night, and later to all students in the grade, are included.  These presentations provide comprehensive details about the course planning process:
