To Register

In the chart below, find the course in which you wish to enrol. Select the "Register" link at the end of the row.

Registering for More Than One Course: Enrol for more than one course by selecting one from this table. You will be able to select more courses later in the registration process.


A prerequisite course provides knowledge required for a subsequent course. Before you register, check the information in the table below to determine whether a prerequisite course is required. You are required to 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. Please be advised that we cannot accept Completion of Requirements documents (page 3 of the report card), or screenshots of an online portal (OUAC/OCAS, myBlueprint, Career Cruising) as prerequisite evidence.

If you do not have the required prerequisite but have completed an equivalent course outside of Ontario, are a mature student, or have higher-level education, you may be eligible for a prerequisite waiver. If this applies to you, please submit the completed Prerequisite Waiver Application form to your guidance coordinator prior to registration.

Upgrade Course

If you are repeating a course to attempt a higher grade, you may take an upgrade course. An upgrade course covers all curriculum requirements but has a reduced assessment load. These courses count towards the students' OSSDs the same as all other VHS courses. Eligible students must have completed the same course within the past 12 months and earned a passing grade (at least 50%). Available upgrade courses for each grade level are listed in the chart below.

International Students

At VHS, students are considered international students if they are neither Canadian citizens nor permanently residing in Canada. The fee for international students is the tuition fee listed in the table below + $100. If you are registering from an address outside of Canada and are (1) a Canadian Citizen, (2) have a permanent residence in Canada, or (3) are attending a Canadian International School that studies the Ontario curriculum, please be sure to contact our office before proceeding to register to ensure the appropriate course fee is applied.

The Fine Print

Refund Policy: Virtual High School does not issue refunds. Within hours of enrolment, our administration undertakes many tasks including activating the student account, completing the enrolment, contracting the teacher, establishing electronic/physical files, tracking the enrolment 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 on the enrolment date of the original course. If a student requests a transfer, an administrative fee will apply.

*Transfers will not be available to a student who has completed more than three assessments or to a student who has extended the course past the initial 18 month deadline.

Student Enrolment Policy: There is no set schedule for a student to follow, nor are there due dates for completing assignments. The student may start their course within 24 hours of registration and move through it at their own pace (Note: registrations that occur on holidays will be enrolled on the next day). The only restriction is that the course must be completed within 18 months of enrolment. A student will be removed from a course if it is not completed within 18 months.

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 document should be sent to Prerequisite@VirtualHighSchool.com upon registration. A student may register at any time and, upon registration, will 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, they may be eligible for a prerequisite waiver. The student may request that a prerequisite be waived by submitting a Prerequisite Waiver Application to the VHS Guidance Team prior to registration.

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 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.
