Course selection requires time!! (You have much more time this year than last year!!!) Not every course is available in every period so it may not be possible to schedule all of your choices The school timetable is built based on student selections—the ones that you are making now. Timetable changes (and, in particular, level changes) are very difficult to make once the timetable has been set. CHOOSE WISELY
Each Subject Area in the Course Book contains flow charts like this one.
Each course offered at Canterbury is identified and described in the Course Book.
You will make your course selections online. We are using Career Planner by Career Cruising See the tutorial at https://www.careercruising.com/home/CPVideo.aspx WEB BASED COURSE SELECTION
If you do not have the prerequisite this program will not accept your selection Students in the Arts Canterbury program should enter the 2 course codes provided by your Arts Teacher. Remember: course selections can NOT be changed once submitted Entering your courses
