The Course Type is to identify if the course is in preparation for the college or university level. Open courses are designed to meet the requirements of either college or university prerequisites. Course code is a standard identification established by the Ministry of Education in Ontario of credit courses taken by a student. The course code will be used on report cards, transcripts, and any other documents that will reflect Ontario credit courses. It is a combination of letters to identify subject area, numeric level, and academic level of difficulty. Substitution of compulsory courses can only be made by the principal for students with special needs. The range of courses may include the following:

  • Learning Strategies 1: Skills for Success in Secondary School
  • Discovering the Workplace
  • Designing Your Future
  • Leadership and Peer Support
  • Advanced Learning Strategies: Skills for Success After Secondary School
  • Navigating the Workplace

A maximum of 1 credit earned for a learning strategies course may be used as a substitution for a compulsory credit course. There is a limit of 3 substitutions. Other credit courses in Business, Social Sciences, Science, and Technology are available on an individual’s needs basis.
