New Program Announcement: High School Pathways


Experience Canadian culture and lifestyle as you take part in our new High School Pathways program with SC Study Centers. In this program students will enter the Canadian education system to study English at one of our schools in Canada. The course will prepare you learn the necessary English requirements to be accepted into a local High School where you can earn your OSSD (Ontario High School Diploma). Our English Program will also count towards your OSSD and on completion of your OSSD you will be eligible to apply to college or university as a Canadian High School Graduate.

To enter this program you will need to have completed GEOS English Level 5 / 6 (any start date) and you will also have to have completed Grade 11 or 12 of High School from home country. In addition, a study permit is mandatory for any student applying to the High School Pathways Program.

The typical length of this program is one academic high school year. The starting dates differ depending on the High School you attend and when you register and complete the requirements beforehand. The typical start for the program is in the Fall (September) and Winter (January) seasons. However you may need a longer period of study depending on your level of English fluency.
