Onoway Jr/Sr High congratulates Dual Credit grads!

Posted on:

Eight students from Onoway Jr/Sr High School took part in Dual Credit opportunities this year, pursuing Health Care Aide and Administrative Professional designations through Norquest College, while earning credits toward their high school diplomas.

Dual Credit programs allow students to work toward professional certifications while still in high school. The program gives students the opportunity to see if a chosen career path is really for them before committing to a program, as well as to get a jump start on their career after high school. 

Six OJSHS students graduated from the Health Care Aide program and two from the Administrative Professional program. In addition to their regular schedule at OJSHS, students traveled to Spruce Grove for different classes and practicums over the course of the past school year.

Health Care Aide
After the July practicum component, students will be ready to work in a variety of dynamic hospital settings as fully certified Health Care Aides.

Administrative Professional
After one school year, students are able to take part in the business world through event planning, data keeping, business communication, software applications and organizational politics.  

Congratulations to all!!
