HDCH Course Selection
It is critical that parents and guardians are involved in the process of course selection, helping students keep in mind their goals for the future, graduation requirements, and their particular gifts and passions. In order to encourage this, we provide online course selection.
For students entering grade nine, course selection is completed on School Admin, following completion of the application form. Thank you.
Figuring out which classes you should take doesn’t have to be complicated. These course selection tips should be a great launching point for figuring out your own personal plan.
Consider your long-term goals
Think about your gifts and talents, and consider what vocational pathways might be a good “fit” with who you are created to be. Discuss the long-term vision with parents, friends, and teachers.

Review your history and be sure you have all the pre-requisites for your preferred courses
You can check out specific course pre-requisites in the Course Calendar and you can review your academic history via myblueprint.ca.
Complete a four-year plan
Once you’ve included all required and pre-requisite courses for graduation and for any post-secondary programs, and you’ve considered co-op opportunities and courses of interest, and you’ve considered balance and workload, create a draft four-year plan. Then, step your way through course selection at myblueprint.ca
