Toronto International College (TIC), established in 2003, aims to meet the needs and demands of students from Canada and across the globe. We cater to students who require individual attention and/or students wishing to pursue intense preparation for admission into prestigious Canadian universities and colleges.
TIC is a unique preparatory school for students who wish to complete their secondary school education, improve their English language skills, and/or be prepared academically, culturally, and linguistically for university or college.
We offer an Ontario Ministry of Education curriculum in an intensive, structured learning environment; especially for international students. Our students are primed to apply for and successfully transition into post secondary institutions in Canada.
Welcome to your new extended family at TIC! Not only are we a member of the Ontario Federation of Independent Schools and Languages Canada, but we recently became a member of the College Board in order to offer IELTS testing
and Advanced Placement (AP) testing and credits. Our experienced team of professionals uses technology, differentiated instruction, and inquiry-based learning to accommodate different learning styles.
ONTARIO SECONDARY SCHOOL DIPLOMA (OSSD)
Our students are able to complete academic programs pertaining to Secondary School (Grades 9, 10, 11 and 12) in our student-centered and innovatively-designed learning environment. Within these academic programs, TIC focuses on supporting and meeting the individual needs of each student. Students who complete our Grade 12 program and meet all necessary requirements including English proficiency, receive an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD).
ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE (ESL) PROGRAM
Our comprehensive ESL program is designed for international students to build their English language skills quickly, as well as to prepare them for academic excellence. Successful completion of our ESL program meets the English requirements for admission to our partner public colleges.
Student academic evaluation is based on a combination of continuous assessment of course work, such as essays, projects, tests, and assignments, which comprise 70% of the overall course grade. A final exam at the end of each module accounts for 30% of the overall course grade.
The Ontario Ministry of Education curriculum is ranked 4th overall globally. The Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) requires the completion of 30 course credits, the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT) or the
Ontario Secondary School Literacy Course (OSSLC), and 40 hours of community service.
