Semester 1 Start-Up Information
Based on the information provided by the Ministry of Education, students will be starting school on September 8th with the VLC running normally. Each course will run for 75 minutes from Monday to Friday and students will be expected to participate fully in their courses. This means that if a student is taking four courses with us they would be completing 300 minutes of work per day.
Students will begin to have access to courses starting Tuesday, September 8th. Courses will continue to be opened throughout the week of September 8th. As each course is loaded, it will appear on the student’s dashboard. Please do not contact the office via telephone or email for your login credentials or timetables. Login credentials will be emailed when your courses begin and timetable information will be provided in each of your courses.
If students would like to review their course selections, they may log in to their profiles on our website.
Please monitor emails and this website for more information.

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.
