Dual Credits

Overview

Students participate in apprenticeship training and college courses, earning dual credits that count towards both the high school diploma and the college diploma, degree or apprenticeship certification.

Dual Credits engage students through exposure to college courses and the college experience while supporting their successful transition to postsecondary education.

Who are they for?

Students who may need learning opportunities outside of high school and who would benefit from a college or apprenticeship experience to complete their Ontario Secondary School Diploma.

How do they help?

Dual Credit Programs can help students move from high school to college and apprenticeship programs. They can help students complete their Ontario Secondary School Diploma while customizing their learning with exposure to the college environment.

Students have the opportunity to:

- Earn high school credits while studying at a local college or taking apprenticeship training
- Gain experience to transition to postsecondary education or apprenticeship
- Get a head start on learning and training for their future careers.
