International Students

For all the students who wish to attend a quality institution and obtain a quality education where students’ learning is of paramount importance, Elite Private School is there for the taking. You may attend from any geographic location, sitting in the comfort of your home with our online program or you may attend in person for our in-class programs in Canada. With either format, your Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) can be had.

Who is Considered to be an International Student?

At Elite Private School, an international student is considered to be a student who is neither a Canadian citizen nor a Canadian resident, regardless of your geographic location. All other students, regardless of location, are considered non-international students. This information is important because international students who study online DO NOT require a visa, however, those who wish to study in Canada at one of our campuses may need a study visa, depending on their country of origin.

For international students who wish to physically study in Canada for more than six months, a study visa is required.

 

Ontario Student Record

 

All provinces and territories in Canada have jurisdiction over education. In Ontario, an  Ontario Student Record (OSR) must exist for every student registered in a school. If a student is attending an Ontario school, online or not, international or not,  an OSR must be generated for that student if one does not exist.

 

The OSR is a physical file folder that contains all official school records for a student. These include transcripts, records of community service, Ontario literacy records, report cards, IEPs, PLARs, and other important information pertaining to the student’s education. Certain documents are required to establish the OSR:

1. Identification

A copy of their valid government-issued identification document.       The following documents accepted are: passport, driver's license, birth certificate. Where the identification documents are not in English or French, they must be accompanied by a notarized English or French translation. The documents may be sent by facsimile (fax),  email addressed to the appropriate administrator, mail to

Elite Private School

Brampton, Ontario

2. Official Transcripts

For courses that require a prerequisite, official transcripts have to be sent by one of the three means outlined about. For transcripts not written in English or French, it must be accompanied by a notarized English or French translation. It must be accompanied by the original transcript.
If it is not possible to translate the transcript in English, a student may submit the transcripts to a translation service such as the World Education Services or the International Education Research Foundation.

 

3. English Requirement


Since all courses are delivered in English at Elite Private Schoo, it is imperative that students become comfortable with English, hence, Students may be required to complete the English Language Placement Assessment so as to determine their level of English language competency.

What Is Virtual at Elite Private School?

Elite Private School originated from the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). It is licensed by the Ministry of Education, Ontario, and is, therefore, qualified to issue FULLY accredited Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) to its students, online or in-class, international or local. 

 

Elite Private Schoo offers courses from kindergarten to grade 12. However, as per the Ministry of Education, Ontario, for students to obtain the OSSD, they must finish 30 credits from grades 9 to 12. Eighteen of these credits are compulsory and twelve are optional. 

 

At Elite Private Schoo, equivalent courses completed at a student’s prior institution may qualify the student for exemption from those credits as long as they are aligned with the Ontario Curriculum for similar courses and meet the guidelines established by the Ontario Ministry of Education in Appendix 2 of Ontario Schools, 2016. Along with the credits, the student must finish the provincial literacy text and community involvement (see OSSD requirements on this website for greater detail).
