Introduction

Welcome to the Fraser High School online course selection

Our course structure has been designed to provide the widest possible flexibility in course choice, and should the need arise, provide opportunities for pursuing courses at more than one level in the same year.

The courses cater for students who are planning to go to university, polytechnic or other tertiary institutions and also for students who are planning to enter the workforce at the end of Year 12 or Year 13.

Remember that there are prerequisites that must be met to gain entry into most courses for NCEA. Students will have their courses confirmed in January..

Fraser High School offers a range of career-related courses that complement our conventional subjects. These courses almost always offer Standards for one or more national qualifications.

It is important to take advantage of the opportunities for advice which the school provides as you plan your courses for the coming year. Please contact the school office to make an appointment with the careers advisor if you need help or advise planning for your future.
