In order to accommodate changing covid-19 restrictions, Term 1 courses will be offered online as remote teacher led learning. You must login and participate in the class during the class times. Please check your: email, the St Louis website, and the WCDSB website regularly for updates.

Term lengths and class times are compressed into a very short time frame (morning or afternoon, Mon – Fri) and attendance remotely is expected during your classes designated time. Each term is approximately 7 1/2 weeks.  This amount of time for day classes is usually just the right speed for many students and is within the timeframe allotted for day classes to complete the 90-110 hours to earn a secondary school credit.  Daily attendance / login to D2L is expected during your scheduled class time, in order to meet all the requirements of earning your Secondary School Credit.

If this pace is too slow / fast for you or you require flexible attendance, notify your instructor first and then contact a Guidance Counsellor to discuss alternatives by either completing a Guidance Intake Form . A guidance counsellor will contact you via email within 1-2 business days during our office hours.

Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition for Mature Students (mPLAR) is a process that helps mature students obtain recognition for learning outside of formal education settings.  PLAR focuses on what adults already know and what they can do. For example, have you lived on your own and managed your own money, do you have children, have you worked or volunteered and learned new skills.  These elements are just a handful of the situations we evaluate to determine how that life experience may be attached to secondary school credits. At St. Louis, we can help you obtain recognition for this life and work experience.

Who is Eligible?

PLAR is available to mature students who entered an Ontario high school after 1999, or would like to graduate under the current Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) requirements.

Are you:

  • At least 18 years old on or before December 31 of this school year?
  • Enrolled in a Secondary School Credit program for the purpose of obtaining an OSSD
  • Out of high school for at least 10 months before returning as an adult
  • New to the Ontario Secondary School system, as of February 1, 2004 AND working toward an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD). (Students who have studied out of province or out of country would also qualify under this criteria)

You may earn up to 26 secondary school credits using PLAR for Mature students.  The last 4 credits MUST be earned via any combination of our day class, hybrid, correspondence, online, language credit, skills training or Credits@Work options.  Credits offered in Skills Training programs are elective credits only. Please contact a Guidance counsellor  by completing a Guidance Intake Form to receive a PLAR application.

Choose courses related to your future education and career goals: Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) Requirements.

INTEND TO GRADUATE THIS YEAR?

Completed all your OSSD Requirements? (including your 40 hours of community involvement)

Ontario Secondary School Diplomas (OSSD) are issued only once a year.

If you are a current student completing your last few credits, and all of your OSSD Requirements (including your 40 hours of community service), please be sure to complete an Intent to Graduate Form.  The Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) is an important Ministry of Education document that many employers require proof of and we like to celebrate with you.
