The Learning Centres day school program is for students 18 years of age and older. It is a high school credit program for students who wish to complete their Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) in a flexible, adult environment. The program is also open to students who have graduated high school but are looking to upgrade credits for work or post-secondary purposes.

Courses are available both online and as correspondence booklets. Students are able to register at any time throughout the year and start the courses right away and work at their own pace. Depending on current demand, additional courses may run throughout the year in a nine-week term format.


Planning your courses

Coordinators can help students plan their studies to upgrade their skills and achieve their career goals while completing their OSSD. Choose from a variety of subjects including:

  • English
  • mathematics
  • sciences
  • and more...

You may be eligible for prior learning assessment recognition (PLAR) credits or maturity/equivalency credits. To register for a course, please contact your local Learning Centre. To register, you will need:

  • A transcript from the most recent high school you attended
  • Government-issued ID
  • Admission requirements for your post-secondary program of choice or credit requirements for the workplace in order to complete an educational plan (optional)


Correspondence courses

Correspondence courses are available for individuals whose schedule does not permit them to attend classes in person. They are available to students who are 18 years of age or older and are not enrolled full time in a secondary school program. Correspondence courses are offered as either hard copy booklets or as online courses.

Each course consists of a 20 lessons. Students complete the lesson material and hand in the key questions at the end of each unit. Lessons are marked by a certified teacher and are either handed in at your local Learning Centre or submitted online, depending on the mode of delivery you have chosen. Once the lessons are marked, they are returned to the Learning Centres where they can be picked up by the student or feedback is provided in the online learning environment.

Upon completion of all hard copy units the student writes a final exam at their local Learning Centre. Online students must complete a culminating task in the online learning environment. A passing grade must be achieved to be successful in the course. After completing the final exam a course mark is calculated and a report card is provided.

Students have six months from the date of enrolment to complete a course (including final exam). There must be work submitted every month to remain enrolled in the course. Students may only be enrolled in one course at a time.

Correspondence courses that are offered through hard copy booklets have a cost of $56.50. Continuous intake online courses have no cost.

Contact your nearest Learning Centre location for further information.
