gradOSSD

Canadian Independent College continues to be organized around a quad semester system with entry points in: September, January, April, and July. By the end of grade 10, students will have completed 16 of 18 compulsory courses required by the Ministry of Education for graduation purposes. These courses are taught at a level that will enable students to complete OSSD standards.

Grades 9 and 10

Grades nine (9) and ten (10) make up the last two years of the intermediate curriculum in the Ontario Ministry of Education’s requirements for the Ontario Secondary Graduation Diploma. These years, with their largely compulsory subjects, provide the skill and content base for specialization in the senior division.

Grades 11 and 12

Canadian Independent College offers preparatory courses for University or College to students in Grades 11 and 12. These courses are designed to aid the students to gain the knowledge base and skills they need to meet the entrance requirements for University or College programs. Emphasis is placed on the theoretical aspects of the course content, as well as concrete applications.

By the end of the Grade 12 year, students will have been able to complete the 30 credits required. Coupled with the completion of 40 hours of community involvement and successfully passing the required Ontario Secondary School Literacy test, students will be qualified for the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) awarded by the Ontario Ministry of Education. Students who have completed an OSSD with at least six (6) acceptable prerequisite credits at the 4U/4M (Pre – University) are eligible for direct admission to universities or colleges worldwide.
