Earn Your Ontario Secondary School Diploma Online at Laureates Academy

Laureates Academy’s online school offers a flexible and affordable path to an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) for both local and international students.  This program is ideal for students who:

  • Want to save money: Our online tuition fees are significantly lower than in-person tuition. You’ll pay half the international student rate and 50% less than local students attending our physical school.
  • Prefer to study from home: Eliminate the need to relocate to Canada by attending classes online from the comfort of your own home country or province. You’ll avoid additional expenses like housing, food, transportation, and clothing.
  • Are not ready for independent living: Some parents prefer their children to remain close to home during their high school years. Our online program allows this while still providing a high-quality education.
  • Want a hybrid approach: Combine online learning with in-person classes later in your high school career.

A Stepping Stone to Higher Education

The Ontario Secondary School Diploma you earn through our online program is recognized by universities worldwide, including those in Canada, the United States, and Europe. This makes it an excellent choice for students seeking to pursue higher education after high school.

Experience Real-Time Learning in an Interactive Environment

Our online school is not a series of pre-recorded lectures. You’ll experience real-time classes that closely replicate our physical classrooms using Zoom conferencing technology. Here’s what you can expect:

  • Live, interactive classes: Participate alongside classmates attending in person.
  • Engage with teachers and peers: Ask questions, answer questions, and discuss course content in real-time.
  • Full curriculum coverage: Access the same curriculum and learning materials as our in-person students.

Laureates Academy’s online program offers the closest thing to a traditional classroom experience, from the comfort of your own home.
