THE MIDDLE SCHOOL COVERS GRADES 7 & 8
The academic program in Middle School allows our students to gain knowledge, skills and confidence as they approach High School. Our teaching staffs are well-versed in teaching techniques that engage young minds. Proven techniques such as: activity-based learning, individual education plan, group planning, debates and an element of challenge in classroom activities facilitate our students becoming engaged learners for life.
At Canadian Independent College, we offer a dynamic, excellent and cooperative learning environment where students’ curiosity is stimulated, leadership skills are refined, and advanced interactive learning is meaningful and focused.
Canadian Independent College continues to be organized around a quad semester system with entry points in: September, January, April, and July. By the end of grade 10, students will have completed 16 of 18 compulsory courses required by the Ministry of Education for graduation purposes. These courses are taught at a level that will enable students to complete OSSD standards.
By the end of the Grade 12 year, students will have been able to complete the 30 credits required. Coupled with the completion of 40 hours of community involvement and successfully passing the required Ontario Secondary School Literacy test, students will be qualified for the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) awarded by the Ontario Ministry of Education. Students who have completed an OSSD with at least six (6) acceptable prerequisite credits at the 4U/4M (Pre – University) are eligible for direct admission to universities or colleges worldwide.
The Pre-University program at Canadian Independent College is an excellent and cost effective
program for international students seeking university and college placements outside of their
country of origin.
Pre-University programs are essential for most international students. They allow for a transition
year that allows students to adapt to a more comprehensive style of learning. Our students learn
and grow in a disciplined and nurturing environment. That is why we have a 100% university
AP helps students gain an edge in university preparation:
