Graduation Transitions requires students to explore personal and career

graduation. Transition planning is an ongoing process throughout the
graduation program years and requires the completion of a transition plan,
culminating in a final Grade 12 presentation. This section should be
completed and submitted by winter break in grade 12. An incomplete
GTP after may result in not graduating in June.

tell your Referees to alert them that they may be getting a call!)
