High School

Canadian Independent College continues to be organized around a quad semester system with entry points in: September, January, April, and July. By the end of grade 10, students will have completed 16 of 18 compulsory courses required by the Ministry of Education for graduation purposes. These courses are taught at a level that will enable students to complete OSSD standards.

By the end of the Grade 12 year, students will have been able to complete the 30 credits required. Coupled with the completion of 40 hours of community involvement and successfully passing the required Ontario Secondary School Literacy test, students will be qualified for the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) awarded by the Ontario Ministry of Education. Students who have completed an OSSD with at least six (6) acceptable prerequisite credits at the 4U/4M (Pre – University) are eligible for direct admission to universities or colleges worldwide.


The Pre-University program at Canadian Independent College is an excellent and cost effective program for international students seeking university and college placements outside of their country of origin. In order to prepare our students for their post secondary studies, we have integrated an online learning platform into our program. Students LOVE it! As an internet and traditional academic school we find purpose, passion, and meaning educating young minds.

Pre-University programs are essential for most international students. Our intense transition year experience allows students to adapt to a more comprehensive style of learning while living in a disciplined and nurturing environment. That is why we have a 100% post secondary placement record.



AP means Advanced Placement. The AP Program provides an opportunity for high school students to take College / University level courses while in high school. This exposure helps students build university level skills.   In many cases, students who achieve a level 4 on the AP examinations can earn university level course credit at most colleges and universities in the US, Canada and in 115 other countries.

AP helps students gain an edge in university preparation:

  • Get a head start on exactly the same material you will confront in University.
  • Improve your writing skills and sharpen your problem-solving techniques.
  • Develop the study habits necessary for tacking rigorous course work.
Canadian Independent College will provide a variety of Programs to interested students during the summer (July-August). The Programs will engage and stimulate students in a safe and controlled environment. An enriched curriculum mixed with day and weekend trips will be provided to summer camp students from a multicultural background.

The focus for our Activity Program will be directed towards activities that can be of lifelong value for our students. Leadership of self and others will be encouraged in all Programs.

Each student’s timetable has a set recreational time slot each day in addition to the mandatory physical education class. Each student will be required to pursue at least one activity per term.
