GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS



From Grade 9 to Grade 12, students earn course credits toward high school graduation.

To obtain a Manitoba high school diploma, students must accumulate the 30 credits from a combination of compulsory and optional courses.

A compulsory course is a course for which students must receive credit (ex: English language arts, mathematics, social studies, physical education/health education, etc.).

An optional course (sometimes called an elective) is a course that students may choose based on their interests, abilities, values and career goals (ex: arts, languages, information and communication technology [ICT], etc.).

Some courses are full credit; others are half credit. Students and parents are encouraged to discuss credit requirements with their school counsellors and teachers.
