    In addition to the comprehensive offering of compulsory academic courses, Oak Park offers a wide range of optional courses as well as programming through associated institutions such as InFormNet, the High School Apprenticeship Program, the Manitoba Institute of Trades and Technology, and Manitoba Education Independent Study Option. At Oak Park, we nurture the potential for growth in all of

École secondaire Oak Park High School provides this guide to assist students and parents in understanding the content of courses and the organization of senior year’s programming. This guide is intended to be used in family discussions that will assist students in making wise program and course choices. Future career opportunities will be influenced by present course selections. Students should honestly and seriously assess their own personal interests, abilities, aspirations, and long-term plans and use this assessment as a guide for choosing courses. After personal assessment and family discussion, students and/or parents are encouraged to consult with school staff regarding course planning. Such planning is critical to meeting the requirements of post-secondary educational institutions or the workplace.

  • Programs - French Immersion & English French Immersion This high school program is designed for students who have been enrolled in the French Immersion Program since elementary school. The French Immersion Program is intended for students who generally do not speak French at home. Upon meeting the requirements of this program, students will graduate with a Manitoba French Immersion diploma.

    The goal of the French Immersion Program is to develop proud, confident, engaged, plurilingual global citizens.

    “The French Immersion Program enables students to interact spontaneously, autonomously, and confidently in French with pride and ease. They seek opportunities to engage in the Francophone community. Their identity as Canadian citizens, competent in both French and English, creates lifelong opportunities and fosters openness to other languages and cultures.” - Manitoba Education, 2017

    To graduate with a Manitoba French Immersion diploma, students must achieve a minimum of 14 credits in French (30 credits overall for graduation). The table below lists the compulsory requirements for graduation. Please see your School Counsellor to review specific requirements.
