Pathways initiatives provide a wide range of course types, programs and learning opportunities to prepare students for success in secondary school and beyond. Secondary schools offer a variety of course types to meet the needs of all learners.

Each pathway includes different course types and may also include specialized regional pathways programs. Pathways are flexible and may be combined and changed. As students begin to know themselves as learners they have the opportunity to adjust pathway plans as they move through secondary school, with the assistance of their Guidance Counsellor and parents.

Most students’ secondary school experience includes courses from a variety of course types. Pathways in secondary school prepare students for their chosen post-secondary destination. The five destination Pathways initiatives are Apprenticeship, College, Community, University, and Work.
