The Canadian Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) has consistently ranked as one of the top university programmes worldwide, having been built on sound and proven best practices, with quality assurance and academic rigour at its core. It provides students access to the best universities in Canada, the USA, Australia, the UK and other European countries; with a variety of scholarship opportunities. It is rated as equivalent to the International Baccalaureate Diploma (IBDP).
Every student enrolled on the OSSD programme is recognized by the Canadian Ministry of Education and, so, benefits from the accompanying privileges of getting an Ontario Education Number (OEN), and having a file opened for each of them by the Canadian Ministry of Education. The one year of OSSD also counts towards the required number of years for residency permit application in Canada.
Students can select from a variety of subject options, conveniently divided into four Grade 12 streams as
- Health Science/Environmental Science/Biology*
- Engineering/Computing/Architecture/Science-Based Mathematics
- Business/Business-Based Mathematics
- Social Sciences/Creative Arts
Once enrolled on the programme, students are set on the path of independent, conscious and continuous learning, with constant teacher support. The programme also puts students at the fore front of modern technology by prioritizing and basing teaching and learning on 21st century technology – all learning resources are concentrated in a single online space for easy access, even on the go.
