Secondary students can attend high school while preparing for post-secondary attendance at either a Canadian college or university. Two academic streams are available. More information can be obtained by contacting the guidance department of each TDSB school designated for international students.
The TDSB secondary schools offer comprehensive support to international students and a full range of academic, language and elective courses., AP courses, extra curriculum activities, clubs, and sport teams. All schools offer a wide range of art programs including music, drama, fine arts and visual arts.
A selection of secondary schools has been selected for hosting international students. These schools are located throughout the City of Toronto in a variety of communities. The spaces available at the designated secondary schools are regularly updated on our website (www.studytoronto.ca). Please check the website often in order to have the most up-to-date information. Placements will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis. Every attempt is made to place incoming international students in their school of choice; however, this may not always be possible.
International students applying to TDSB secondary schools are only eligible to regular-track programs.
