Options Courses

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! This year we are offering a variety of CTF courses (options) to expand your child’s knowledge and provide them with opportunities to experience something new.

Our CTF options are all either based on Alberta Education approved courses or are locally developed courses with specific learning outcomes. They are a way to explore different subjects and activities that students may want to pursue in the future.

Students will select their preferred options via an online form. Any student who does not have internet access or has not completed the form for any other reason will be guided through the process at school. 

We always try to place students in their first choice of options, but there are courses that become oversubscribed every year. We work on a case-by-case basis using first, second and third choices, student need, individual situation, and other factors to reach a fair outcome.

Options fees must be paid by the second week of each course for students to participate. There is a free option choice every term.
