It's time to learn about the OSSD and its values! Our students deserve the best, we want them to be successful in every facet of their life. Education builds the foundation to flourish and prosper.

Ensuring a student's secondary education is recognized among the leading international universities is a priority, as is the value of university-level academics. Ranked as one of the best secondary educations in the world, Merrick Prep students graduate with the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD), and we thought you should know why!

The OSSD has proven to be the best option when preparing MPS students for world-ranked universities, receiving scholarships, and being accepted into their first-choice university program. How do we know, you ask? Because our 100% university (top ranking, worldwide) placement success rate says so!
