To graduate high school in Ontario, the requirements involve earning 18 compulsory Ontario high school credits and 12 optional credits. Yet, for some students, courses offered at their high school seem limited, don’t adhere to their learning style, or simply don’t seem interesting enough. When one is presented with such conditions, how else can they earn their diploma in a way that fulfills their learning needs?
Luckily, there are extracurricular options that allow students to earn their high school credits with more autonomy on how they want to learn. Such entails e-learning through a publicly-funded institution, online courses from virtual private high schools, and dual credit programs.
1. Online Publicly-funded Institutions
Avon Maitland District Elearning Centre (AMDEC): AMDEC is an online secondary school regulated by the Avon Maitland District School Board. They offer features like career counseling and the option for students to complete courses at any time between September and February. However, students must be enrolled in their current high school to register.
Independent Learning Centre (ILC): As Ontario’s largest online high school, ILC continues to provide online Ontario Secondary School Diploma courses. Students at ILC can begin their classes anytime, having up to 10 months to complete any of the offered 144 courses.
OpenSchool: OpenSchool, part of the Adult and Continuing Education program with Trillium Lakelands District School Board, offers continuous entry online classes approved by the Ministry. The curriculum’s single-subject focus enables students to accelerate their progress and transition to the next course at their convenience.
Virtual Learning Centre: VLC, the oldest online school in Ontario, offers both asynchronous and live, online classes following the semester system. Students can engage with teachers and peers through real-time classes and extra-curricular activities like chess, debate, and student newspaper.
