Transition to Secondary
As you begin the secondary school in the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board, you will have the opportunity to set a destination and chart a course for your life. The NAVIG 8-2-9 Mapping Your Future has been developed to provide you with an overview of items that you should consider when selecting programs and courses to ensure that you will have the best opportunity for a meaningful secondary school education.
