Grade 12 Program

In Grade 12, the only required course for graduation is English 12 (with Provincial Exam). Students will select at least five additional courses in areas of interest. They may also take Grade 11 courses in order to meet requirements. It is recommended that students take six or seven courses, not including Graduation Transitions, but are limited to a maximum of eight, (seven if taking AP science courses).

Graduation Requirements

At SMUS, students must complete specific graduation requirements as outlined by the Ministry of Education, but students will also be expected to earn additional credits. Students need 80 credits to graduate and this will be made up of elective courses, BC Ministry requirements and SMUS requirements.
