Quinte Secondary School  recently hosted a Manufacturing Open House. The event showcased the school’s manufacturing facility and programs offered.
Quinte SS offers nine different manufacturing courses, including a two-credit Manufacturing Focus program with a Dual Credit college course, and a Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM).
The SHSM is part of the Ministry of Education’s Student Success initiative, which focuses on expanding quality learning opportunities and supporting success for all students in all areas. The SHSM is a ministry-approved specialized program that allows students to focus their learning on a specific economic sector while meeting the requirements for the Ontario Secondary School Diploma. Each successful student will receive a red Specialized High Skills Major seal on his or her diploma indicating his or her focus of study. The SHSM enables students to gain sector-specific skills and knowledge in the context of engaging, career-related learning environments. It also helps them to focus on graduation and pursuing their chosen post-secondary goals.
