Working with Virtual High School

The flexible and online nature of Virtual High School (VHS) can provide a variety of opportunities for your organization. VHS is inspected by the Ministry of Education (BSID 665681) and has worked with organizations worldwide since 2003 to offer a professional, flexible, and innovative pathway for students who wish to earn Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) credits or the full diploma. We strive to provide students with the best education available online and are always looking to build new relationships with organizations around the world.

Facilitated Learning

Students can earn OSSD credits or diplomas online with the support of a qualified VHS teacher. VHS will work with you to support your students, assisting with enrolment, exam set-up, and ensuring that there is a point-to-point contact to address issues. VHS courses are ideal for international pre-college and university programs and supplementary OSSD credits for unaccredited or accredited organizations.

Online Learning Solutions

We can help to build your online or blended program, an innovative solution for existing schools that wish to adopt online or blended learning opportunities for their students. Your organization can work with VHS to write and develop courses tailored to your students’ specific needs. Discover how we can bring your eLearning program to life.
