Teacher – delivered day classes are offered at St. Louis Kitchener Main Campus ONLY. By taking teacher-delivered classes, you value the input, direction and support from an Ontario Certified Teacher who will deliver and engage you through the curriculum of the course you have chosen. Some time will be given in-class to work on assignments.
Term lengths and class times are compressed into a very short period. 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. Regular attendance is expected, 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, please visit the Guidance office to discuss alternatives.

Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR) 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.
- 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 drop in to the Guidance office to speak to a counsellor and to pick up a PLAR application.
