Program Planning Guide
This section of our school website is intended to give students and parents an overview of the many courses and programs offered at Richmond Secondary School. We offer a wide range of Ministry of Education courses, unique district programs, locally-developed course options as well as the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme.  Please use the separate links on the right for more detailed course information from each department.

Please note, students' personalized and completed Program Planning forms must be signed by parents and are due by 3 PM on Thursday, February 8, 2024.  Course selections must also be entered online by this date.  Please see the attachment below for instructions.


Students are encouraged to read the online RHS course descriptions, ask current teachers, parents, classmates and counsellors about courses and think carefully before selecting courses for next year. Remember, we are here to help!  Older students are responsible to see that the necessary prerequisites are taken for the post-secondary institution(s) of their choice.  Choose thoughtfully - you are planning your timetable for next year and taking important first steps on your post-secondary pathway!
