Junior High Schools – offer regular programming with French Immersion offered in Beaumont and Leduc. As well as offering a well rounded extra-curricular program they offer some exclusive sports program focusing on excellence.
High School programs – are rich in opportunity. Diploma marks in our high schools are consistently higher than the provincial average. All of our schools offer a full range of academic programming and some offer specialty programming. They offer off-campus education such as Work Experience and the Registered Apprenticeship Program with opportunities to blend programs within some schools. All schools offer an extensive extra-curricular program that will meet your students’ needs.
Two of our larger high schools have unique programs;
- Ecole Beaumont Composite High School is unique in that it is a dual track school with French Immersion and English for academic courses. It also offers CTS, band, drama and an extensive extra-curricular program and specialty programs that meet the needs of all students.
- Leduc Composite High School is unique in that it is a dual track school with French Immersion and English for academic courses, has extensive CTS opportunities and is excellent in music and drama programming. It also provides an Advanced Placement program (AP), and specialty programs that meet the needs of all students.
Work Experience – A Black Gold Off-Campus Education Program is all about students learning valuable work skills beyond the walls of their school. A company work site within their community becomes their ‘Classroom’. The school Off-Campus Education Coordinator helps students locate a business that wants to partner with the school in their learning experience. The purpose of this program is to familiarize students with the world of work. Real-life resumes and interviews can help them land a quality job, while customized skill and safety training give students the opportunity to excel at their work site.
Dual Credit Opportunities- As part of our commitment to Inspire Success in our students, Black Gold School Division (BGSD) will be offering a program which provides a dual credit opportunity to our high school students. Through the program, students will earn college credits and high school credits by completing college-level coursework. This program is in partnership with Lakeland College, Northern Lakes College, Olds College, Portage College and Alberta Education. More information in the 2020-21 Dual Credit Handbook.
