The Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) provides students with an individual pathway to their program of choice at the top universities in the world!

Through our Secondary Program, students can achieve an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) which provides students with an individual pathway to their program of choice at top universities around the world!

Our Secondary Program consists of our Middle School (Grades 7 and 8) and our High School (Grades 9 through 12).  Our Middle School section is designed to create a smooth transition from Elementary to Secondary.  Students in Grades 7 and 8 have a rotary system where they travel with their homeroom to specialized subject teachers throughout the day.  Our Guidance Counsellors also work closely with our Middle School students by preparing activities for them to complete throughout the year that encourage them to think about High School and course selections.  

The Secondary Program’s foundation of learning is built upon the strengths of the Ontario, Canada curriculum. It is a world-class curriculum that has consistently demonstrated success in the OECD Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) for many years. As a leader in education, students who are successful in completing all of the requirements of the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) have opportunities for direct admissions to the top universities around the world. More information can be found in our University Pathways section.

Our exceptionally well qualified teachers in the Secondary Program ensure that all students get to where they want to be. Our program of study is academically rigorous, but flexible enough to allow students to focus on the areas of study they want to pursue after high school graduation. We offer our students a variety of courses, particularly the senior grades, in order to meet their individual strengths and interests. 

Beyond academics, students benefit from a friendly, supportive learning environment, and we take great pride in our positive school community. We offer a wide range of extra-curricular activities such as clubs, interschool teams, and leagues. Extra-curricular activities allow students to get active, meet friends, and contribute to both the local and global community.
