Academic Calendar 2022/23

High School Career Programs

Abbotsford Career Programs are a joint project of School District #34 (Abbotsford) and the University of the Fraser Valley. Students enter at the Grade 11 level, spend two years enrolled in a specialized career or technical program, and graduate having fulfilled the requirements for both secondary school graduation and a university-level one-year certificate.

The purpose of the programs is to prepare students directly for employment in their chosen field upon graduation. Or, in some programs, they may choose to "ladder" their UFV credits into the second year of a two-year diploma or four-year degree program at UFV or another post-secondary institution. There are no tuition fees, so students get a year of university credit at no cost!


Programs currently offered include:

  1. Architectural Drafting Technician certificate
  2. Automotive Service Technician certificate
  3. Carpentry certificate
  4. Construction Electrician certificate
  5. Welding certificates
