PROGRAM

High School Program

The program is designed for international students wishing to continue their further education (higher, secondary or vocational) in educational institutions in English-speaking countries. The college accepts students from grades 9 to 12 inclusive. The course program is coordinated and approved by the Ministry of Education. Upon completion of the course, students receive an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD), recognized by educational institutions around the world.

Curriculum:

Upon arrival at the school, all students are tested for knowledge of the English language, according to the results of which they are assigned either directly to the academic program, or first to the English language course, if the student's level is lower than that required for the academic program.

Each semester lasts 9 weeks, during which the student focuses on only 2 courses (except for students enrolled in the Express Program).

After enrollment, the student meets with his or her academic supervisor. The meeting discusses the curriculum for the coming year, based on the results of the internal test, previous academic performance and goals set by the student.

This plan is adjusted twice under the following conditions:

  • the student's goal for the coming academic year;
  • selection of courses necessary to achieve the goal;
  • additional classes, subjects, participation in volunteer work inside and outside the school;
  • goal for further academic career.

The school day is divided into three periods:

  • 9:30- 12:00;
  • 13:00- 15:30;
  • 15:40-16:10.

College/University  Preparation Program

Post-secondary programs focused on continuing to college or university. Upon admission to this program, all students take a test in English and Mathematics. Based on the test results and the student's wishes for the university, a training program is drawn up. The student is informed what courses need to be taken in order to enter the desired college or university faculty.

The duration of training depends on the level of knowledge of the student and the goals that they set. The student can always discuss their program with the teacher and, if necessary, adjust the curriculum.
