Additional Credits

Additional High School Credit Opportunities:

1. Correspondence Studies: Register here for a correspondence course. This site also lists costs, text book requirements and a “Frequently asked questions” option. http://csp.ednet.ns.ca

2. Nova Scotia Virtual School: NSVS provides an opportunity for students to do one course on-line each semester. It is free and students will receive support for technology needs. The student must have one free period in their schedule to accomodate this course and it has one required echat meeting per week, which occurs within school hours. It is a good alternative if our courses here at Park View are full, you have a conflict or we don't offer it! There are approximately 25 courses being offered next semester and registration is open now! If anyone is interested in hearing more about NSVS, please make an appointment with Ms. Kelly! Or check out this website: http://nsvs.ednet.ns.ca/m19dev/

3. Personal Development Credits: The Department of Education has launched a new guide for earning credits for certifications achieved outside of public school. Students who achieved certification in various organizations such as Cadets, Scouts/Guides, Lifesaving Society and many more are eligible to earn credits that will appear on their transcript. See Ms. Kelly if you have any questions or visit this website: https://pdc.ednet.ns.ca/

4. Duke of Edinburgh's Award: This is a challenge program for youth that is internationally recognized as a leadership/community involvement program. There are three levels of achievement and each one involves Skill Development, Physical Activity, Community Service and an Adventurous Journey. We have an active group here at Park View. High School credits are earned with the successful completion of each level.
