Welcome Grade 8s and returning students curious about Course Selection Process at Fox! This is a page where you can find out some general information about Terry Fox Secondary, as well as more detailed information about specific courses and the course selection process.
For general information, please watch this recording of the online Grade 8 Parent Info Night held online on Thursday, January 25th. If you don't have time for the whole video, you're welcome to flip through the slides shared at that meeting. If you have even less time, check out these short videos that we have posted on our TFSS YouTube channel: a quick video tour, an introduction to our elective classes, and this website with lots of details about our awesome STEAM Program.
The first step in selecting courses is to get access to MyEd BC, our online student information system (which is the platform students use to select and view their courses, and parents use to view progress reports). We have both a short video as well as a "How-To" document students and parents can use for help getting access, and another video explaining how to select courses.
The MyEd BC Student & Family Portal will be open for course selection on the following dates. Please note the underlined deadlines!
- Current Grade 8 students: Monday, January 29th until Friday, March 1st
- Current Grade 9 students: Thursday, February 8th until Monday, February 19th
- Current Grade 10 students: Thursday, February 15th until Sunday, February 25th
- Current Grade 11 students: Thursday, February 22nd until Sunday, March 3rd
To help guide course selection, please explore our Course Selection Guide for detailed info about every course we offer.
Here are some grade-specific planning forms we use as an additional resource, as well as more details about choosing courses at each grade:
