Focus Programs 

Focus Programs are packages of courses offered in Limestone District Secondary Schools connected to post-secondary pathways Apprenticeship, College, University and Workplace. These programs provide students with both academic challenges and work-related experiences in a career or area of study.
Focus Programs are experiential learning experiences for students providing them with knowledge and skills relevant to all post-secondary destinations. Expanded opportunities such as Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM), Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Programs and Coop are available in many focus programs.

SHSM - Specialist High Skills Major

The Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM) is an innovative approach to earning a secondary school diploma (OSSD) funded by the Ministry of Education as part of the provincial Student Success Strategy designed to “reach every student”.  
The SHSM enables students to customize their Secondary School experience to suit their interests and talents while preparing them for a successful post-secondary transition into apprenticeship training, college, university, or direct entry into employment.  
Limestone students will have the opportunity to qualify for an SHSM in one of the following sectors:  Arts & Culture, Construction, Energy, Environment, Forestry, Health & Wellness, Hospitality & Tourism, Justice, Community Safety and Emergency Services, Manufacturing, Sports and Transportation.
