On May 6, 2021, Christian Virtual School (CVS) will be holding a virtual information session for Grade 8 students transitioning to Grade 9. As an online Christian school in Ontario, we are committed to providing access to Christian education for students across the globe. Whether you have been part of a homeschooling family or attending an elementary school, CVS could be an option for you!
With over twenty years of combined experience in education and secondary school administration, we understand that this transition can feel overwhelming. We want to mitigate any apprehension or concerns and make this transition as smooth as possible!
During the session, we will give some general information about Christian Virtual School, provide a quick virtual tour, and review what is required for students to earn the Ontario Secondary School Diploma.
Students typically complete 8 courses in their Grade 9 year. Our Grade 9 course offerings for the 2021-2022 school year will include: MTH1W, ENG1D, BTT1O/2O, BBI1O/2O, CGC1D, PPL1O, FSF1D, ALC1O and SNC1D. For more details on each course, check out our website.
Many of these courses are among those required to earn the Ontario Secondary School Diploma. To earn the OSSD, students must earn 30 credits, 18 of which are compulsory and 12 are optional. Students must also complete the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Requirement and 40 hours of community involvement.
We will provide all attendees with a graduation requirements checklist to use as a guide as they progress through secondary school. This document will help students keep track of what they have completed, and what requirements are remaining.
In addition to this guide, we will also do a quick tour of myBlueprint, which is a career/life planning tool that all Christian Virtual School students have access to. With this tool, students can plan their secondary school pathways and work towards their goals with a plan in place.
Any questions or concerns about course selection, prerequisite requirements, or OSSD requirements can be directed either of our excellent administration and guidance team members.
