Step 3 - Course Selection:

Once a completed registration package has been received and reviewed by Oakville Trafalgar High School, the grade 8 student's family will be contacted by an OTHS Guidance Counsellor to complete course selections for Grade 9.

To prepare for this conversation, we ask that the student with their family review the Grade 8 Family Toolkit with particular attention to the Compulsory Courses (Tool #1) and Elective Courses (Tool #4) as well as the Grade 9 Course Catalogue Document.

We will process completed registration packages only. A guidance counsellor will contact families for course selection conversations after registation paperwork has been processed.
