What is the Canadian Curriculum or OSSD?

Ranked among the world’s top 5 secondary school programs, the OSSD or Ontario Secondary School Diploma is accredited by the Ministry of Education - Government of Canada. While the Canadian Curriculum is available for Grades 1 to 5 and Grades 6 to 8, the OSSD is exclusively for High Schoolers (Grades 9 to 12). Recognised globally by top universities and learning institutions, it provides students with a superb foundation and the opportunity to go further.

Progression Pathway

Upon registration, each student will be given an Ontario Education Number (OEN) from the Ontario Ministry of Education. From this moment, they are official Canadian students and will receive the same benefits as students studying in Canada. Since the OSSD is globally recognised, students can pursue the diploma to get into top international universities and even expedite their Canadian PR application.
