Citadel High School Yearbook

Is there anyone out there who could provide information about the course requirements at Citadel High School?




Here I am providing information about the courses requirements that can help you if you are seeking admission in Citadel High School.

Graduation Requirements 2013 – 2014:


18 credits are required to graduate


13 of these are compulsory


3 English Language Arts (one at each grade level)


2 Mathematics (from two different grade levels)


2 Sciences (a “first science” credit and 1 other – see course descriptions)


1 Canadian History course (Mi’kmaw Studies 10, Canadian History 11, Histoire du Canada 11F, African Canadian Studies 11, or Gaelic Studies 11)


1 Global Studies (Global Geography 12, Global History 12 or Géographie planétaires 12F)


1 Physical Education (Phys Ed 10, Physically Active Living 11, Mode de Vie Actif 11F, Dance 11, Phys Ed 11, Yoga 11, Phys Ed 12, Phys Ed Leadership 12, Dance 12)


1 Fine Arts (Art, Dance, Drama, Music Collective/Band/Strings/Theory/Vocals)


2 other credits from Technology, Mathematics or Science


No more than 7 of the 18 credits may be from courses coded as Grade 10 and at least 5 must be from courses coded as Grade 12.


Only one credit will be given for a course in the same subject at the same grade level, although both will show on the student transcript. For example, if a student completes English Communications 12 and English 12, it will only count as one credit toward the 18 credits required for graduation.
