Do you still need to complete your diploma requirements?

Do you require a specific secondary school credit as a pre-requisite for post-secondary or skilled trades training?  Most employers require you to have an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD).     

A Bluewater District School Board Adult Education Guidance Counsellor can help you choose the courses that will lead to your success.

FREE - no cost for intake, assessments, or classes


panel expand or collapseWhat Is The Purpose Of The Program?
Gain secondary school credits with the intention of earning the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD).

Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR) is available.

PLAR is a process that helps mature students obtain recognition for learning outside of formal education settings.

Since you have been out of school you have gained knowledge or skills from the workplace, life experiences or other training.

The last four Grade 11 or 12 credits of your OSSD cannot be granted.  They must be earned through formal education. Taking a night class, earning Credits@Work, or taking an Adult Dual Credit course at Georgian College, can help you achieve them.

panel expand or collapseWho Is Elgible For PLAR
Be at least 18 years old on/before December 31 of the current school year.

Have been out of school for a period of at least one school year, before returning as an adult.

Are registered and enrolled in a secondary school credit program at Bluewater District School Board Adult Education, for the purpose of obtaining an OSSD.12182018_105545_0.png
