Who can participate?

Individuals in the Treaty #3 territory are eligible to pursue course upgrading or their Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) with Seven Generations Education Institute. Some restrictions apply. Contact us to find out more.


In order to earn an OSSD, students must complete a minimum of 30 credits, including 18 compulsory credits. Students also need to satisfy the provincial literacy requirement and complete 40 hours of community involvement. Through SGEI, students can take courses to prepare for the workplace, college or university. Students can also take advantage of opportunities to earn credits through cooperative education or dual credit courses.

If you need your OSSD for work or if you require prerequisites to attend a post-secondary college or university program, our teachers can help you create a path to the credits you need.

With our Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR) program, you could be on the fast track to earning high school credits. PLAR is the process by which you can earn credits toward your Ontario Secondary School Diploma for education, training, life, and/or work experience that you have acquired outside of school. Ask your teacher how PLAR can help you achieve your high school diploma.
