Caronport High School is becoming increasingly well-known for the small town, close-knit community that nevertheless presents its students with these absolutely explosive opportunities! The following details give you a sneak peek at what CHS has to offer as you consider submitting your application.
CHS offers COUGAR football, basketball, volleyball, badminton, soccer, and track. Although our teams do not practice during classes, games sometimes do interrupt regular schedules (if our teams are required to travel). Students should speak with their respective coaches in order to find more detailed information. For contact information, please phone 1-800-667-5199.
The CHS term system is slightly different than most high schools: we have have chosen to have three terms rather than two semesters. Typically, CHS students register for four classes from September to December, four classes from January to April, and another two classes in May and June.
Students living in our dormatories are only required to leave campus for Christmas and Easter holidays.
Among other reasons, we have chosen this system in light of these benefits:
- CHS students are able to leave school behind and enjoy family and friends over Christmas without the stress of coming back to finish exams.
- students in Grade 12 are able to gain university credits by taking college classes during their spare periods!
- the May and June semester creates more time to be dedicated to Photography classes, Visual Arts classes, Practical and Applied Arts classes, as well as several particularily challenging subjects, which demand more time for careful study.
Each dorm room contains a desk with drawers, a chair, a twin bed, shelves and a closet for each CHS occupant.
Internet access is available for all students. Please contact us for more information regarding the details.
Pay phones are available in each dorm. In addition, a student is allowed to set up a personal account with SaskTel and have a phone installed in their dorm room for the year.
In-dorm curfew is 10:30 p.m. on week nights; the necessary lights-out time depends upon the student's grade (i.e. grade 9, 10, 11 or 12).
There is a mandatory study period for all dorm students, which lasts for one hour each evening from Monday through Thursday.
Each Residence Leadership Team is led by a Residence Director, who oversees and gives leadership to the dorm. In addition, we hand-pick college-aged Residence Assistants to live on the halls and work closely with the high school students throughout the academic year.
Parents and friends are more than welcome to visit, and students are welcome to go home most weekends. We do have a few "closed" weekends in which we require our students to remain on campus to encourage participation in the big events that have been planned for them (e.g. Youth Quake weekend!). Overnight campus leaves must be cleared with dorm leadership in advance.
Students are able to go to Moose Jaw for basic shopping, banking, entertainment, and other needs by signing out at their dorm. In order to allow trips of a longer distance, parents must phone in and give their permission.
Students have access to a computer lab that is designated specifically for the high school for students who are not able to bring a computer themselves.
Our dress code does not require uniforms, but we do ask for modesty from our students, as well as sensitivity in avoiding any types of clothing with questionable morals or slogans.
