Academic Course Load Policy

Once timetables have been finalized in September, students must maintain their scheduled full-course load at Lawrence Park Collegiate until the end of that academic year.

Students whose circumstances require that they take fewer than 6 courses, must make application through the Guidance Department to the *Program Review Committee at the time of course option selection in February.

Grade 9/10:
Students must carry 8 courses per school year on their timetable.

Grade 11:
Students are expected to carry 7 or 8 courses per school year on their timetable once they have accumulated 16 credits.

Grade 12/Graduating Year:
Students are expected to carry 6, 7, or 8 courses per school year on their timetable depending upon the number of credits required to graduate (30 credits).

* The Program Review Committee consists of the Principal, Vice-Principles and Guidance Counsellors who meet regularly throughout the school year to consider individual student program adjustments.

Continuing Education courses are supplementary and are not a part of a full-course load at Lawrence Park Collegiate.

All grade 11 and 12 students are reminded that FULL DISCLOSURE applies to ALL COURSES dropped after 4pm Thursday, December 8th, 2006. Students should see their Guidance Counsellor for details on the implications of FULL DISCLOSURE and their future plans.
