Skills Training with SSC Credits

Over the last 15-20 years, St. Louis has successfully graduated thousands of students who pursued affordable skills training options that lead to sustainable employment right after school. Today, we still offer Culinary ArtsHairstyling and Barbering, and Personal Support Worker training following current skills training expectations, trends in the industry and meeting employer expectations.  Not only do students gain skills, and work experience, they earn Secondary School Credits too!

Need your OSSD?

If you do not have your OSSD, you could earn 6-8 elective Secondary School Credits, depending on the 8 month program you choose. If you DO have your OSSD, these same credits are applied to your high school transcript, showing improved grades, or courses relevant for any post-secondary applications.

By offering a “School-to-Work”, skills training option, the Ministry of Education covers the costs of “tuition” (instructors, classrooms).  As a result, the only costs to students are the tools of the trade and instructional material, which would be an expected expense to you if you choose a similar program at any post-secondary or private institution.
