The Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test
) is a compulsory standardized test for ALL secondary school students in Ontario (under and over 18 years of age) who wish to obtain the Ontario Secondary School Diploma. For students who entered Grade 9 in 1999–2000, successful completion of the test is not a graduation requirement. However, for those students who took the field test of the OSSLT in 2000–2001, failed the test, and chose to retake the OSSLT in October 2001, successful completion of the provincial literacy graduation requirement became a diploma requirement. This test is administered by the Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO)
St. Louis offers an OLC (Ontario Literacy Course) that basically prepares you for and ensures that you have met the graduation requirements of the OSSLT. This OLC course is available through St. Louis online, in day classes and in summer.
