The York Region District School Board, in partnership with local colleges, offers many dual credit courses for Grade 11 and 12 students.
Students may earn credits towards the OSSD through courses delivered by publicly funded colleges in Ontario that are participating in the ministry-approved dual credit program. Students may earn up to four optional credits through college-delivered courses.
