What is Dual Credit?

Ontario’s Dual Credit Program offers senior Ontario High School students an opportunity to experience a regular college course while earning both a college credit and a credit towards a High School diploma.

The Dual Credit program is intended to encourage eligible secondary school students to complete their Ontario Secondary School Diploma while exploring postsecondary education at an Ontario Community College.

Dual Credit is a co-operative effort with a mandate to assist in creating a seamless transition for students from secondary school to college, particularly students who face significant challenges in completing the requirements for graduation but have the potential to succeed.

The WRDSB currently collaborates with Conestoga College to offer a variety of program options.
