Arrival Timeline for our Credit Programs
While we do accept applications on a rolling basis throughout the year, we have restrictions on when students can join our program and earn credits towards the Ontario Secondary School Diploma. Students joining four weeks after the start of a semester will be able to audit courses but are too late to earn credits. We do not allow students to join the school after April 1.
