At St. Oscar Romero, we offer Dual Credit opportunities allowing students to get a head start on their future by exploring areas of interest in high school. Students will be able to enroll in post secondary courses, earning both high school and post-secondary credits within their own high school setting. We are currently offering four courses in Health Fields and Nursing, which will meet Alberta's growing needs in health care because the demand for licensed practical nurses and health field areas is increasing. Last year, a cohort of students completed four University level classes towards a Licensed Practitioner Nurse (LPN) through Norquest. These courses can be stepping stones to exciting careers and are at no cost. Students at St. Oscar Romero will be able to reach their full potential in becoming ethical citizens and engaged thinkers with an entrepreneurial spirit.
