INFORMATION ON THE ONTARIO SECONDARY SCHOOL DIPLOMA (OSSD)
Atlantic Hall was approved by the Ontario Ministry of Education, Canada, to run the Ontario Secondary School Diploma in Nigeria in Partnership with KAI Academy International, Ontario.
OSSD -Ontario Secondary School Diploma: The OSSD is the secondary school graduation diploma required to gain admission into universities in Canada. It is also accepted worldwide as a university entry requirement.
To earn an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD), a student must earn a minimum of 30 credits, including 18 compulsory credits and 12 optional credits. Students must also complete 40 hours of community involvement activities and must pass the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Course (OSSLC).
The benefit of this Partnership includes “The enrolled students get an Ontario Student Number (OSN), which is Canadian Student Trademark. The classes, assessment (OSSLT) and community involvement work would be done here at Atlantic Hall School, under the supervision of the Ontario Education Quality and Accountability Office, which will save parents from the foreign exchange cost of sending their wards to Canada.
Another benefit is that a student’s WAEC/IGCSE result does not matter since Ontario Diploma allows students to move from non-science courses to science courses and vice versa.
The students also get accustomed to the Canadian Higher Education style of learning which is broadly different from the UK/Nigeria style, thus when they move to Canada, the academic transition is seamless. In addition, this program also takes care of the whole process of securing the child’s admission and providing career services including scholarship opportunities.
Also, it is more valid for applying for a study permit compared to WAEC and IELTS documentation. Students who undergo the programme will have the privilege of being tutored by both Nigerian and Canadian Teachers.
Atlantic Hall provides an all-inclusive fee package covering high-dosed tutoring, Notebooks & Textbooks, OSSLT Assessment, Admission Processing and many more.
The programme is presently available to SS2 (grade 11) and SS3 (grade 12) students who wish to further their education abroad after Atlantic Hall.
