Academics

OCDSB schools provide instruction from Kindergarten to grade 12. Secondary schools offer courses of varying levels of difficulty designed to prepare the student for university, college, or the workplace. Students requiring extra English instruction will benefit from the school board’s integration of English as a Second Language (ESL) programming within the regular secondary school curriculum.

Students have a wide selection of courses from which to choose and are encouraged to take courses that will prepare them for post-secondary studies. OCDSB secondary schools offer courses in a variety of subjects, including computer studies, business, biology, physics, geography, economics, international languages, music, physical and health education, calculus, accounting, algebra, law, and more. Students who are not confident in their English ability can study English intensively and acculturate before starting school at the Young People’s Language School of Canada (YPLS). In association with the international student program, YPLS offers students English for Academic Purposes and introduces the organizational and social skills that give them a foundation to help them better adjust and succeed at a high school or university in Canada.
