Welcome to Pathways! 




There are many Pathway Programs available to Halton Catholic Secondary students within the Halton region. In partnership with the Halton Public Board we at HCDSB are able to offer many career exploring programs to our students.

Students are able to experience unique opportunities to learn about the world of work, explore potential careers and gain valuable work experience. These programs assist all students who are bound for the workplace, university, apprenticeships or college to make informed and knowledgeable decisions about career pathways.

  • Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM) programs enable students to customize their high school experience to suit their interests and talents & prepare for a successful post secondary transition to apprenticeship training, college, university, or employment, while meeting the requirements of the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD)
  • Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Programs (OYAP) are designed to help students make a smooth, successful transition into or to their post secondary education apprenticeship programs
  • Speciality Programs comprise a variety of School-to-Career programs that give students specialized work experiences in all kinds of different fields
