Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM) is a specialized program offered through numerous secondary schools in Ontario. This program allows students to customize their high school experience to fit their career interests. In addition to an OSSD (Ontario Secondary School Diploma), SHSM graduates receive special recognition for completion of the program.
A student being able to attend school and take courses specific their future aspirations has proven to be very beneficial in allowing the student to start building their career early, and earn valuable certifications in their industry. Furthermore, the program gives students the chance to gain important skills from real employers, and professionals in the area of work they wish to pursue.
Here at Weston CI, we offer two SHSM sectors; Sports Media and Manufacturing. As our generation progresses through a technological revolution, there is an increasing demand for professionals in both of these fields. These SHSM sectors at Weston CI develop, and prepare enrolled students to thrive in their career field, all during high school. The SHSM program is coordinated jointly by Mr.Smith and Mrs.Crewe.
