Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM)


What is a Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM)? 

Specialist High Skills Majors let students focus on a career path that matches their skills and interests while meeting the requirements of the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD). Students complete a bundle of courses and gain valuable work experience through Co-op.  SHSM programs lead to all post-secondary pathways – university, college, apprenticeship, and the workplace. At Bayview Secondary School, we offer three SHSM Sectors: Business, Health & Wellness and Non-Profit.  Students can apply to be part of our SHSM program in their Grade 10 year for completion in Grade 11 and 12. 


How to register for Bayview’s SHSM?

How is a Specialist High Skills Major recognized?

• an Ontario Secondary School Diploma with an embossed SHSM seal 

• a SHSM Record documenting their achievement 

• formal recognition on their Ontario Student Transcript.
