Super Achiever blocks in the student timetable may be fixed afternoon blocks or rotating morning blocks depending upon student training needs and timetable block availability.
Each one of our secondary schools works to provide flexible scheduling where possible when requested for training or performance requirements. Provisions are made by staff to ensure that students have an opportunity to satisfy their school course requirements.
- Granting of assignments prior to departure
- Extending deadlines for projects
- Rescheduling of exams or tests when students have given adequate notice of upcoming training sessions, competitions or performances
Each one of the secondary schools’ counsellors works with students to ensure that all required courses for graduation are considered when scheduling the students’ secondary school programs.
Planning 10 & Physical Education 10
A reminder that both Planning 10 and Physical Education 10 are required courses for graduation. If not completed within the school timetable, students must complete these courses online with the Vancouver School Board (VSB), or at Summer School. A school may offer alternate Physical Education courses for students to support the Super Achiever Program.
Students competing or performing at an elite level may also receive additional external course credits that may be applied to their graduation program such as External Athlete 10, 11 & 12 which recognizes athletes who are competing at a regional or national level. In these cases, documentation must be provided to the school. Please note that qualifying for these credits does not automatically imply that a student is meeting the requirements for the Super Achiever Program.
Successful applicants may be required to attend a meeting conducted by the school’s counsellor or person-in-charge during the first month of school commencement to review expectations, to provide information and to answer questions.
