We provide Secondary Students with a variety of opportunities to learn about and challenge themselves, contribute to the community, learn a new language or a new skill, and do so in a welcoming and supportive environment.
The following program opportunities are available to Secondary Students:
International Language Credit Program
All courses follow Ministry of Education guidelines and are accepted as credits towards a high school diploma. The courses are for eligible regular day school students and adults who are Ontario residents.
The program enables students to:
- Prepare for post-secondary studies and careers in the fields of business, trade and communications
- Foster global awareness and understanding
- Enhance student exchanges, and
- Develop training skills for international/global employment opportunities
The Driver Education Program is offered 3 times during the year. Prices, dates and program details are subject to change each term. Check the website at the beginning of each registration period for up-to-date details for the pertinent session.

Focus On Youth Program
Once again our Board has received a Ministry grant to continue the very successful Focus on Youth program. Focus on Youth is a partnership between the Ontario Government, school boards and local community agencies, which provides summer programming for students in identified high needs urban neighbourhoods.
We offer a variety of Summer School courses for Secondary Students and our course offerings are open to all learners from all school boards. You don’t have to be an OCSB student to take advantage of the exciting summer learning opportunities!
