Frequently asked questions
How do I find out if I qualify to take courses at the Braemar Online Academy?
The online pathway has been designed for students who have completed the equivalent of grade 11 in the Ontario high school system. This would usually mean the student has completed three years of high school studies (O Levels / GCSE). The online pathway, then, is the final year of the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD). To qualify, in addition to having completed three years of high school education, students also have to demonstrate an appropriate level of English and math on our placement tests.
If I have completed the equivalent of a high school diploma and only need a few courses to qualify for my chosen postsecondary program, can I still apply?
Yes. Students who require only a small number of more specialized courses can apply. For instance, a student who wishes to apply to a nursing program may have a high school diploma but require addition math, biology or chemistry courses.
If I qualify, what is the first step?
The first step is to fill out the application form, letting us know what level of education you have completed and which postsecondary program in Canada you are interested in.
How are the fees calculated?
The fees are for the entire pathway, and the number of courses you require depends on your level of English and mathematics. So the next step, before we can know for sure, would be to make the application fee ($150 CAD) and complete the two placement tests.
What happens after I have completed the placement tests in math and English?
Based on the results of your placement tests, our guidance team will put together a detailed and personalized study plan showing the courses you would take, the approximate duration of your study plan, and everything else you would need to qualify for your chosen postsecondary program.
