All high school students in the province of Alberta are expected to create their own MyPass Account through Alberta Education. This should be completed in Grade 10. This allows students to track progress, register for Diploma Exam rewrites, find out Diploma results, and order Official Transcripts for Post Secondary Application.

If you haven't done so already, please use the link provided tobegin the process. Instructions are easy to follow. Students will need their ASN (Alberta Student Number - 9 digits) in order to create their MyPass Account. If you have any questions, feel free to contact a Guidance Counselor.

Student Information and High School Transcripts

The primary goal is to ensure all students have their required courses and a balanced timetable. If a student has a balanced schedule with the courses required, that is considered a complete timetable.

During the first week of each semester, all students will be called down by Grade to meet with Guidance and/or Administration to make timetable changes as needed. Teacher/friend requests will not be considered.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this busy time.
