What is it?

Students participate in apprenticeship training and postsecondary courses, earning dual credits that count towards both their high school diploma and their postsecondary diploma, degree or apprenticeship certification. The program provides new learning opportunities in real world applications, helps students make career choices, exposes them to an adult learning environment and gives them skills that can be used everyday.

Who is it for?

The Dual Credit Program is for high school students working towards an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) who need learning opportunities outside of high school and who would benefit from a college or apprenticeship experience.

How it helps

Students can earn high school credits while studying at a local college or taking apprenticeship training, helping them to gain experience that will help them with their postsecondary education or apprenticeship program. The Dual Credit Program may provide a more stimulating environment for some students, helping them to succeed. Students are engaged through exposure to the college setting and culture, providing more student choice and ensuring a smooth transition pathway from secondary to postsecondary education. Students get a head start on learning and training for their future careers.
