SHSM ICT (Specialist High Skills Major) is a Ministry supported program that allows students to gain added experience in the Information Communication Technology sector and awards them additional accreditation on their diploma upon graduation.
The program is for students in Grade 11 and 12 and is open to all students in university, collage, apprenticeship and workplace pathways. The program involves taking 4 core technology courses, a 2-credit technology coop opportunity, 3 additional elective credits as well as additional experiential and reach ahead activities and certifications. Our program is designed to give students additional technology skills and opportunities that are increasingly valuable at the post-secondary level and beyond. Our Lady of Mount Carmel has put together an exciting program where students are gaining access to programming in partnerships with numerous local businesses, post-secondary institutions such Sheridan Collage and Guelph Humber, as well as industry recognized professionals in the communications industry such as TSN Broadcaster Rod Black.
Our Lady of Mount Carmel is working at improving and enhancing our SHSM program for 2022-2023 and we are beginning to connect with grade 10 students who might be interested in the program for next year. Our graduation rate is one of the highest in the board, and with 30 students currently enrolled we are experiencing an increase in participation and enthusiasm for the program.
We encourage Grade 10 students who might be interested in the program to connect with Mr. Quinn in Rm#103 for more information.
Our Lady of Mount Carmel's Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM) is Information and Communications Technology.
