Course Planning   

In the spring, course planning is conducted through our counselling centre to help students choose their courses for the following school year.  For course planning questions, please contact one of our counsellors, Mr.Bruno Bergen or Ms. Jennifer Crockett. The course planning booklet and forms are available in both print and digital versions. Registration section includes the digital version of the documents.                                    

Overview of the RBSS Graduation Program

Beginning in Grade 10, you will be working towards the 80-credit Bateman graduation requirements.

  1. Grade 10 is part of the Graduation Program, therefore, marks for all Grade 10 courses will be documented on a final ministry transcript at the end of Grade 12.
  2. We recommend that students accumulate a minimum of 88 credits over Grades 10, 11 and 12 to ensure success.
  3. 52 of these credits are from required courses, 28 credits are from elective courses and 4 credits are from the Grade 12 Capstone Project (currently Grad Transitions) making a total of 80 credits minimum.
  4. All students need to write 2 provincial literacy exams and 1 provincial numeracy assessment in order to graduate. Sample exams and schedules can be found  on the Ministry Website .

Requirements: Grades 10–12


*Of the 80 credits for graduation, at least 16 must be at the Grade 12 level, including English 12 Literary Studies. Others may be required or elective courses.

Career Life Connections and Capstone (includes Grad Transitions for the 2019/2020 school year)

The 2019/2020 school year will be a transition year for the Grad Transitions program to the new Career Life Connections with Capstone Project (CLC) program. Students must earn 4 credits for completing either their current Grad Transitions program or the new Career Life Connections 12 with a  Capstone Project (CLC). In order to do the older Grad Transition model, grade 11 students MUST access the course immediately (please see Mr. Dods in the Careers Centre ASAP). Students who do not access their Grad Transitions immediately, will be required to do the new Career Life Connections and Capstone Project (CLC 12). This is new for the 2019/2020 school year, so please read the attached PDF letter for more information. As more information about the CLC program becomes available, updates will be provided.

This course is not offered in our regular timetable.  Students are required to complete and document their Capstone Project.  See Career advisor, Mr.Jeff Dods or information on Capstone Project completion.
