The Ontario Secondary School Literacy Course (OSSLC) is a full-credit Grade 12 course that will be offered as part of the English program in the second semester of this school year. It is an alternative to the OSSLT as way for students to demonstrate the provincial literacy skills required for graduation. In addition, the course allows students to improve the literacy skills they will require in workplaces and to be contibuting members of our society.
The credit earned for successful completion of the OSSLC may be used to meet either the Grade 12 English compulsory credit requirement or the Group 1 additional compulsory credit requirement for graduation.
Students who have been eligible to write the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT) at least twice, and have been unsuccessful at least once, are eligible to take this course. In certain circumstances, mature students may be eligible for OSSLC entry. A mature student is over 18 years of age and has been away from any form of education for 12 months.
Please read course information carefully.
Just a quick note to welcome all of our students back after the winter break. We hope you are well rested and ready for the final stretch of the semester.
The staff of the VLC hope that you find peace and happiness in time with family and friends over the Winter Break. Take some time to rest, relax and rejuvenate. Please remember to offer to do something kind for someone else. Happy Holidays!
