Eligibility to Graduate
To be eligible to participate in the graduation ceremony and the grad banquet, grade 12 students must be registered in a program of applicable courses* and passing, that will enable them to obtain a minimum of 100 credits by the end of June of their graduation year. You can find more information on the Government of Alberta website regarding graduation.
To do a quick check or overview of your child's graduation courses, you can use this document to summarize whether he/she has completed or is in the process of completing the requirements needed to meet the Government of Alberta guidelines for graduation.
It is mandatory that your son/daughter sign up for myPass on the Government of Alberta website ( myPass.alberta.ca ) as that is the official site where their credits are stored and determines whether they meet graduation requirements.
*for clarification of courses, please see the Career Advisor @ HHHS (Ms. Holly Vollans) or the student's Grade 12 Administrator:
Last Names A - F: Mrs. L. Irvine
Last Names G - N: Mrs. C. Chappell
Last Names O - Z: Mr. I. Oostindie
It is the responsibility of all grade 12 students to ensure that they are on the official grad lists (posted throughout the year on the Grad Wall in the gathering area). If a student is not on the grad list, he/she will need to see their Gr. 12 Administrator to find out why. (Please Note: being on the grad list does not ensure students will achieve a grade 12 diploma - it only demonstrates who is eligible for a diploma IF he or she pass all the required applicable courses in June.)
Please ensure name spellings are correct when reviewing the grad list. See Mrs. Ruth-Irvine or Ms. Holly Vollans (Career Suite) if there are any errors or omissions.
