Now that you have decided what kind of career you are interested in it is time to look at the different post-secondary institutions you can attend. Below are sites of some major Canadian Universities. There are also sites that have listings of all the Canadian universities and one site that rates Canadian universities. It is important to carefully consider where you receive your education and you should look at the following items:

A student who has modified classes on his or her Grade 12 transcript must make some different considerations when it comes to school after high school. There are lots of choices for post-secondary education from a variety of schools. This list is just a beginning. If you have an interest in an area of study for the future, you must find out about it. We can help you do that at Student Services.
Another very important consideration is Apprenticeship and Employment. Sometimes, the Apprenticeship Program that a student wishes to do requires a student to have regular classes, not modified. Each trade is different, so you must go to www.saskapprenticeship.ca to research specific trades you may be interested in. We can help you with that in Student Services.
If you don't have the required classes to do the Apprenticeship Program you want and if regular classes are not suited to you, there are other ways to qualify. Students with modified classes are required to take an entrance exam prescribed by the Sask. Apprenticeship and Trade Certification Commission. If the student's academic skills are not adequate, the student may be counselled to enter into a GED 12 program or a Pre-Employment Program before being admitted into the Apprenticeship Program of his or her choice.
Note: Students may take a Saskatchewan Polytechnic (SIAST) Program without apprenticing, but there would be no journeyperson designation at the end of the course. This would have an effect on the level of pay and on opportunity for further training and advancement in the trade.
The following is a list of possibilities. Please remember that each program comes with different requirements and, from year to year, requirements may change. Also, each student has different qualifications. Every application is treated on an individual case basis. In other words, this is not a guaranteed list of programs that a student with modified high school classes could take without question. The point is that you have to start thinking about some future possibilities and working toward those goals.
It is also important to know that just because a student qualifies for and enters a program, success is not guaranteed. There is usually a lot of work to be done. Tech courses are not easy. Students have to be prepared to work hard and use good student skills. Just showing up is not enough.
Students applying for an Apprenticeship Program after Grade 12 will either need to have a regular Grade 10 Math or will be required to write an entrance exam or can get regular Math 10 standing through a Saskatchewan Polytechnic (SIAST) Pre-Employment Program.
These are the course programs from Saskatchewan Polytechnic (SIAST) that students with modified high school classes may qualify for:
* Certificate = 1 year course, Diploma = 2 year course
* Remember that these courses are available through Saskatchewan Polytechnic. There are many other post-secondary institutions to research: NAIT, SAIT, Medicine Hat Community College, Lethbridge Community College, Olds College, Lakeland College, etc.
Here are some things that you can do on your own or with the help of a school counsellor to help you decide what career choices may be right for you:
Thinking of taking an SAT or ACT?
SAT = Scholastic Assessment Test
ACT = American College Testing Assessment
Any student wishing to apply for admission to an American college or university must arrange to write an SAT or an ACT exam.
SAT exams are written here at the YRHS on specific dates during the school year. ACT exams are written in various communities in the province. Visit Student Services to find out more.
What to do:
At any time you may come to Student Services and talk to Ms. Ingham about SAT ACTs. If you are thinking of taking one of these tests, or have already registered, please let Ms. Ingham know.
