Registration Information

  1. To Register: For the course you wish to enrol in, simply click on the "Register" link at the end of its row in the chart below.
  2. More than One Course: : Enroll for more than one course by selecting one from this table and selecting other courses later in the registration process.
  3. Prerequisites: A prerequisite course provides base knowledge required for a subsequent course. Before you register, check the information in the table below to determine what the prerequisite course is, if applicable. You must provide VHS with evidence that you have completed the prerequisite course by sending a copy of your report card, transcript, or credit counselling summary sheet to Prerequisite@VirtualHighSchool.com.  If you do not have the exact prerequisite, but have completed a similar course in another province or country, you may be eligible for a prerequisite waiver. You may also be eligible if you have earned your high school diploma, are a mature student, or have academic experience that is related to your course. If this applies to you, please submit the completed Prerequisite Waiver Application form to your Guidance Coordinator.
  4. Upgrade Credit Course: If you are repeating a course in order to improve your mark, you may opt to take the course as an upgrade credit course instead of a regular course. An upgrade credit course covers all of the same curriculum requirements, but has a reduced assessment load. To be eligible to take an upgrade credit course, you must have already completed the regular course within the past 12 months and earned a passing mark of at least 50%.
  5. Costs: Our costs are transparent. Our Policy Statements on the bottom of this page concern tuition refunds, course transfer fees, course enrollments and prerequisites. View the cost chart comparing VHS to another online school.

Note to all students considering taking online courses from any provider:

The above data was collected April 2, 2008 in the public domain and is provided here in response to a student who recently asked VHS about our hidden costs as a friend of hers had a negative experience at another school in which she ended up paying a lot more for the online course than she expected.

At VHS, we try our utmost to make sure that all students have a quality experience within their course. We also try to make sure that we do not nickel-and-dime our students for all of the services and products we provide as part of our tuition.

The above chart shows a possible scenario of activities in two online schools. There are other special circumstances in all schools, including VHS, in which additional charges may or may not result as a consequence of an additional product or service.

As you are preparing to take online courses, be sure you shop around carefully to discover all of the hidden costs for your online courses, including at VHS. Tuition costs alone, can be a misleading indicator of total cost as seen by the data above.

The Fine Print

Refund Policy: Virtual High School does not issue refunds. Within hours of enrollment, our administration undertakes many tasks including activating the student account, completing the enrollment, contracting the teacher, establishing electronic/physical files, tracking the enrollment for Ministry purposes, etc. Even if the student does not begin the course, the preliminary work in our office will be completed.

Course Transfer Policy: A student has the option to transfer from one course to another at any time within the 18-month completion deadline*. If a student transfers into a new course, the 18-month deadline will not refresh. The student will be required to complete the new course within the original 18-month deadline, based upon the enrolment date of the original course. If a student requests a transfer, an administrative fee will apply. This fee may range from $49-$304, depending on the circumstances.

*Transfers will not be available to a student who has completed more than three assessments.

Student Enrollment Policy: There is no set schedule for a student to follow or due dates to complete assignments. The student can start the course within 24 hours of registration and move through at his or her own pace. The only restriction is that the course must be completed within 18 months of enrollment. A student will be removed from a course if he or she takes longer than 18 months to complete.

Course Prerequisite Policy: Certain courses require the student to have completed a prerequisite course. It is the student's responsibility to provide a copy of an Ontario Student Transcript, Report Card or Credit Counselling Summary showing successful completion of the prerequisite course. This may be sent to Prerequisite@VirtualHighSchool.com upon registration. A student may register at any time and have access to the first unit of a course, however the rest of the content will remain locked until prerequisite evidence has been provided.

If the student has not completed the prerequisite course, but has completed an equivalent course outside of Ontario, is a mature student, or has higher-level education, the student may request VHS to waive the prerequisite requirement by submitting a Prerequisite Waiver Application to the VHS Guidance Team before registering.

Confidentiality Policy: Please note that VHS may communicate with parents or legal guardians of students under the age of 18. In addition, VHS will communicate with any student's home school and applicable post-secondary institutions or organizations. Students over the age of 18 will receive an email upon registration requesting permission to allow VHS to communicate with third party individuals.

Through use of the VHS website, you will have access to third party organizations, such as Examity and GradeSlam. Only basic information, such as your name and VHS email address, is shared with these organizations for the purpose of accessing and using their services. By accessing the websites or platforms of any third party organization through the VHS website, you are agreeing to the policies and procedures of that organization.

All policies may be modified at any time at the Virtual High School website. The use of Virtual High School courses indicates that the student and/or parent/guardian accepts these aforementioned policies.
