Did you know that Templeton is more than 85 years old? In fact, Templeton’s Titans served our
country during World War II, the Korean War, as well as in several
peace-keeping operations around the world.
Templeton students have distinguished themselves in commerce, politics,
athletics and other aspects of local, provincial and national endeavour. Titan pride is evident in every one of our
alumni, and now you too will continue Templeton’s proud traditions. Being a Titan means a lot to those who have
had the privilege of attending our school over the years.
The staff and administration of Templeton Secondary have worked hard to
develop curriculum which is both relevant and challenging for our
students. We continue to introduce
programs which prepare our students to be positive, contributing members of
society. Templeton offers a Mini
School. Advanced Placement exams are
taken by students in Calculus. Challenge
courses are offered in Mathematics and the school is proud to welcome gifted
elementary students in Grade 6 and 7 into Mathematics classes at the Grade 8 and
9 levels. Career Preparation is offered
in 14 programs and apprenticeship opportunities are available for
students. We also provide English as a
Second Language Program, as well as an innovative new program designed to help
students improve in areas of their academic development which may need
additional support. In addition to the
curricular program, extensive extra-curricular opportunities are provided for
students in Athletics and Visual and Performing Arts.
In the spring, counsellors work with the students in each grade to plan
for the following academic year.
Students are advised of course requirements and elective choices
available. If possible, some course
changes may be permitted the last week of August or early in September, but
only for valid educational reasons. All
changes must be approved by the administration.
Course selection is one of the most important decisions in your
secondary school education. Your program
should provide the courses needed for your career goals, either entry to a
post-secondary educational program or direct employment. This calendar is a guide to assist you in
selecting your courses. It does not
contain full course descriptions but will give you the main topics covered, special
assignments or tasks required. Check
with the course instructor for a complete description of what the course will
You should find out as much as possible about the courses you are
choosing prior to selecting them. Also
consider the time and effort that will be needed to be successful in the
course. By doing so, you will make the
best selection and reduce the need for course changes later on.
Ask yourself the following questions:
1. What courses do I need for graduation?
2. What courses do I need for entry to a
post-secondary program or to get a job after graduation?
3. Do I have the lower level courses (Prerequisites)
and have I achieved the recommended level of entry in those courses to the
senior level courses I want and need?
4. Am I willing to do all the required
work and put in the time and effort to be successful?
5. Did I choose my courses based on my
interests, abilities and future goals/needs?
This is an important time of year.
The decisions students make during course selection will, in some way,
impact your life direction. Please
discuss your options with your counsellor, parents, or a teacher. Additional career and university requirement
information may be obtained from our Career Information Assistant. Remember...choose wisely, make a difference,
and continue the Titan tradition of excellence!
Good luck in your studies and enjoy the riches you
will experience through your course selections.
