Dual Credit

College Dual CreditDualCreditEN.png


The School College Work Initiative (SCWI) is a partnership between school boards and colleges that allows senior secondary school students to simultaneously earn secondary school credits towards their Ontario Secondary School Diploma and a college diploma or Level 1 apprenticeship training. The programs run either in the secondary school or college setting and allow students to reach ahead into a potential future education in the apprenticeship or college pathways.

 

Dual Credit programs are designed for students who have the potential to succeed in college but who are:

  • unsure of their pathways after high school
  • needing to build confidence in their skills
  • seeking greater engagement in school
  • needing career clarification
  • may be behind in earning credit(s)
  • who have left and are now returning to school

These students may also be in Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM) programs or the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program (OYAP). Our College Partners for Dual Credit Programs are Humber College, Mohawk College, Sheridan College and Conestoga College.

 

Schools in HDSB and HCDSB offer their own programs.
