The SHSM–Agriculture enables students to build a foundation of sector-focused knowledge and skills before graduating and entering apprenticeship training, college, university, or an entry-level position in the workplace. Where local circumstances allow, boards may elect to offer one or more variants of the SHSM in a given sector, each with a particular area of focus. This SHSM may be designed to have a particular focus – for example, on agricultural equipment or animal and crop science. This focus is achieved through the selection of the four major credits in the bundle.

Non Profit Program
The Non Profit Program is a specialized program that will allow Holy Cross students in Grades 11 and 12 to focus their learning on the non profit sector while meeting the requirements to graduate with their Ontario Secondary School Diploma.
The non profit sector offers a wide range of careers that are dynamic, engaging and rewarding in areas such as art, culture, social justice, education, information technology, health care, and social development.
The common vision throughout this growing sector in Canada’s economy is the desire to make a difference both in our community and throughout the world working with various aid organizations.
Summer School Opportunity Exclusive to SHSM Students
Summer School provides a unique opportunity for students to advance their learning outside of the regular school year. Most courses are offered as the traditional one credit opportunity, but for SHSM students, Co-op provides an opportunity to earn TWO CREDITS! Co-operative Education is a mandatory part of the SHSM program. It is not always possible to fit this two credit program into the regular school year. If you currently have a summer job or summer volunteer opportunity, this may be your ticket to meet the two credit Co-op requirement. In order to be eligible, you must meet the following criteria:
-be registered in an SHSM program
-be available to work full time hours for the entire four weeks in July
-attend pre-placement and integration sessions on Wednesday evenings
-submit the application form and teacher reference forms below AND return them to guidance by March 8th
