The Collegiate
Mount Royal Collegiate is located at the corner of Avenue W and Rusholme Road. It is easily reached by public
transit on both special and regularly scheduled school buses. Mount Royal is a Comprehensive Collegiate and is
proud to serve students from across Saskatoon and Saskatchewan. The diversity in our students, staff, and
programming provides opportunities for youth to be successful in our ever changing world. Experience our diversity,
and share your future with us!

Comprehensive Programming
Being comprehensive, the school offers a full academic program—and much, much more. In addition to academic
courses, students may choose from specialized areas such as Graphic Arts, Animation, Commerce and Computer
Education, Commercial Cooking, Computer Science, Interior Design, Tourism and Hospitality, Mechanics, Welding,
Electronics, Construction, Machining, Drafting, Aviation Maintenance Orientation and Cosmetology. The
comprehensive nature of the school allows the student to explore a vast array of courses in preparation for post-
secondary studies or direct entry into the world of work.

Academic Excellence
The comprehensive offerings at Mount Royal include an outstanding academic program which is acknowledged
throughout the province. Our graduates receive many awards and scholarships each year. In 2010, this list included
ten Saskatchewan General Proficiency awards, plus the Governor General’s Bronze Medal—presented annually to
the most outstanding graduate in each collegiate. Last year, Mitchell Marquette was nominated for the Saskatoon
School Board Award of Excellence.

Caring for Students
The collegiate’s diversity is one of its strengths. As a large collegiate, Mount Royal offers each student a wide range
of course offerings and flexibility in courses. This ensures personalization of each student’s timetable. Our staff takes
pride in warmly welcoming all students into the “Royal Family” by offering experiences in a personalized and caring
manner ensuring that all students can be successful learners.

Semestered and Quartered Programming
Mount Royal Collegiate offers both semestered, (two starts in Sept. and Jan.) and quartered, (four starts in Sept.,
Nov., Jan., and Apr.) methods of class scheduling. In operating a dual-delivery system, students have the flexibility to
manipulate their schedules to match their interests. The semestered model continues to allow for a more traditional
high school experience, while the quartered model accommodates those students looking to focus on a particular
area of interest. The quartered model also assists older students who may have out-of-school commitments.

Special Services
Specialized services and programs are provided by the collegiate to assist students with particular needs. The facility
is accessible by wheelchair and special care has been taken to provide for the needs of disabled students.



                                           Get Involved
                              Commitment and involvement are keys to student success.
                               Students are encouraged to take full academic programs
                            throughout their years at Mount Royal and to become involved
                    in the extensive extra-curricular athletic, social and cultural programs offered.

                                       Literacy for Life
    Just Read is a K-12 initiative based on the foundational belief “the more a person reads, the better a
    person reads.” Just like practice improves performance in any sport, practicing reading improves a
    person’s reading and writing skills. Just Read is a district-wide program to increase student independent
    reading, particularly at home. The rationale is direct: students need to read widely to consolidate skills
    and explore the world that lies within books. Just Read involves the entire school and neighborhood
    community in an active research effort to ensure that all students are reading independently.

    Read to Succeed (Developmental English Language Arts): This program is specially designed to improve the
    reading level of students by helping students build and communicate meaning using all language strands. Students
    will be recognized as needing Read support through a process of assessments as well as meetings with previous
    teachers. Throughout the year, students will be offered support and resources through this outreach program within
    their classes.




         English as an Additional Language
Mount Royal Collegiate offers support to students who are learning English. The goal of supporting English language learners
is to enable them to succeed academically and complete graduation requirements.
Support to learn English may be provided in three ways: direct instruction classes, sheltered classes and EAL support classes.
Specific course offerings will depend on enrolment and student need at each collegiate.
Direct instruction classes are focused on language proficiency: the ability to speak, read, write, and listen with comprehension.
The direct instruction class may take themes from content classes such as social studies, math, science or English language
arts in an effort to build the vocabulary and academic skills necessary for students to be fully integrated into the regular class-
room. Most direct instruction classes may provide an elective credit. They may be offered at all levels of language proficiency
and for all grades.
Sheltered classes provide students with an environment in which they can learn the regular course content while the teacher
adapts the material for English language learners. For example, a special section of English Language Arts may be offered to
English language learners only. If the student reaches the course outcomes, they will receive a credit for this class. Sheltered
classes are intended for students with more advanced language proficiency.
An EAL support class is a period in which a student can receive additional time and assistance to complete course work from
his/her classes. There is no credit for this class.
Language learning is a process that takes a lot of time and hard work. The speed at which a student learns the language is
affected by many factors. Students should consult with the guidance counsellor and/or EAL teacher to choose their classes.


                                                                 4
Grade 9 Programming at Mount Royal

 Our Grade Nine Learning Community is designed to help students in their transition from Grade
 Eight to a high school setting. A small group of staff work together as a team in setting goals
 and delivering the academic program. We provide a safe, caring and culturally-inclusive
 learning environment and build positive relationships with all students. Our goal is to help
 students develop independent thinking, self-confidence, and a sense of social responsibility as
 they discover their own strengths and talents.

 We recognize that students have a natural curiosity and need for relevance and meaning in what
 they are studying. Connecting their learning experiences in a meaningful way is crucial in
 keeping students engaged as active learners. To foster student engagement we equip students
 with the necessary skills to plan and assess their own learning.

 To meet these goals we provide an integrated curriculum that balances academic (with an
 emphasis on Literacy), artistic, practical and applied arts and career education. The curriculum
 prepares students for senior high school and also teaches about basic human values including
 respect, honesty, trust, determination, and responsibility. Career education and service projects
 both within the school and in the larger community foster qualities that will help students be
 successful citizens. All students are encouraged to participate in extra-curricular activities and
 outdoor educational opportunities which teach them to meet new physical and social challenges.

                   Grades 10, 11, & 12
Introduction
The following sections of this booklet have been produced to assist students, parents and guardians in making informed
decisions about future course selections. Academic requirements, interests, and future plans should be carefully assessed
when selecting courses for the upcoming school year(s). If you have any questions, please make an appointment with our
counsellors either in person or by phone (683-7806).


Comprehensive Programming
Mount Royal Collegiate offers a wide variety of courses including a broad range of academic classes as well as technical
and business programs. The school program offers three English as an Additional Language (EAL) classrooms, three Life
Skills/Work Study (LSWS) classes and various support programs including Re-Entry classrooms for students who need to
start classes at a non-traditional time or work on courses in a individually-paced program.

Scheduling
Classes at Mount Royal Collegiate are either semestered or quartered. Semestered classes are offered for an hour each
day for approximately five-months of the school year. Quartered classes are two hours in length, and are 2 ½ months in
duration.




                                 Levels of Learning
                                      Courses are offered at three different levels:



1. Student Enrichment is offered in all classes at Mount Royal.

2. Regular Grades 10, 11 & 12: The pace of instruction is moderate and there is sufficient repetition to ensure mastery.
These courses are designed for students who are at an average level of skill development and achievement in the subject
area.

3. Modified (M) Grades 10, 11 & 12: These courses are designed for students who would experience difficulty in the
subject at the regular level. The pace of instruction is slower and course content, concepts and assignments are specially
adapted. These courses are identified as 11, 21 and 31 level courses.

Current Mount Royal Collegiate students should choose course levels following consultation with teachers and appropriate
discussion with parents/guardians. Parents/guardians must sign the course request form. If there are differences between
a student’s course requests and the teacher/department recommendations, consultations will be arranged between the
department, the student and/or parents/guardians.

Course availability will be based on the number of students requesting these courses.

                          English Language Arts
 The English Language Arts curriculum is centered on the philosophy of language as the base for communicating, learning and thinking.
 It promotes language growth by giving students opportunities to:
  Learn language through experiences with the English language;
  Learn about language including its elements, conventions and process as they speak, listen, write and read;
  Learn through language as they use it to learn about life, literature and language itself.

 Is the student interested in taking more than one math pathway?




In Grade 10, students are encouraged to consider taking both math courses: Workplace &
Apprenticeship Mathematics 10 and Foundations of Mathematics and Pre-Calculus 10.
For university bound students, Workplace & Apprenticeship Mathematics 10 is not a
prerequisite for admission but it will contain content that will be useful to the student in other
subjects, the workplace and their everyday lives.
For students with a strong interest in theoretical math and/or science, it may be advisable to
consider Foundations of Mathematics 20 in the second semester rather than the Workplace &
Apprenticeship Mathematics10.
Some students may decide that the regular mathematics pathways will not meet their needs.
The modified math courses (Math 11 and 21) may be more suitable. It is advisable to talk to
your grade 9 math teacher(s) before making this decision to discuss the benefits and
implications of modified math.

                              Online Learning Centre
 
Saskatoon Public Schools (SPS) is offering a limited number of students the opportunity to take a full
credit course using the internet as the primary means of communication between the teacher and
students. Our courses are based on a semester system. Semester one begins early September and
ends in mid-January. Semester two begins late January and ends in mid-June. To help determine if
online learning is a good choice for you, please see: What Makes a Successful Online Student?
(http://www.ion.uillinois.edu/resources/tutorials/pedagogy/StudentProfile.asp)

Students wishing to register for an online course must be self-motivated, be a good independent learner, and have the
time available to participate in their course on a daily basis. Students should also be aware that online courses typically
require more time than taking a course by traditional face-to-face instruction, and can be more challenging due to the
independent nature of the learning. Due to the limited number of spots available, it is important to be sure that you
possess the time and skills necessary to be successful.

If you wish to register for an online course listed below, and currently attend an SPS Collegiate, please meet with a
guidance counsellor to discuss online learning. If you have any program questions call, please call 683–8313. Our general
policy is to limit student registrations to one class per semester.

Online courses planned for 2012 - 2013 include: Accounting 10, Accounting 20, Accounting 30, Biology 30, Chemistry
20, Chemistry 30, Computer Science 20, Computer Science 30, Creative Writing 20, Creative Writing 30, ELA 10A, ELA

Remember, your electronic selection of an online class must be followed up with an appointment with your school
counselor to discuss your suitability for this type of learning, and to complete the required paper registration form. We
recommend a maximum of one online class per semester.

Royal West Campus is a satellite program of Mount Royal Collegiate which offers Grade 12 classes in a mature,
campus like environment. The school’s flexible nature is set up to meet the needs of its older population. Royal
West offers classes in the traditional semester system, but also offers extension classes, and courses through the
independent study program where students are able to complete their studies in a more independent manner.
Students who have commitments to family, work, etc. and can’t be at school on a daily basis can take one class
at a time through the extensions program. To register, students must meet one of the following circumstances:

        Grade 12 graduate who is trying to enhance an existing mark in a Grade 12 class;
        Student who is returning for a fifth year or more of high school and would like
          to complete their 24 credits required to graduate. This is available to students
          who require Grade 12 classes only;
        Student who is 19 years of age or older* or has been out of school for longer
          than a year and would like to obtain their Grade 12 via an Adult 12 status.
          This program requires a student to take five compulsory and two elective
          Grade 12 classes. No Grade 10 or Grade 11 prerequisites are needed.
          It should be noted that taking Grade 12 classes without the Grade 11 foundation
          is a difficult task.

       *Students who are 22 years of age or older are required to pay a tuition fee for each class.

Royal West students who are interested in the variety of electives that a comprehensive collegiate offers are most
welcome to tap into the course selections that Mount Royal Collegiate offers. Mount Royal is a short, three-block
walk from Royal West. An offset daily schedule allows 15 minutes to make the commute. A subsidized daycare
for children 2 weeks to 5 years old, is available on campus. For further information, feel free to drop in to Royal
West Campus at 441 Witney Avenue North or call (306) 683-7540. Visit the website at http://schools.spsd.sk.ca/
