Intermediate Transition Information

Selecting a Secondary School

The school locator (OCDSB website) enables all students to verify which schools they are eligible to attend, based upon their home address, program choice and grade. It is also important to have a look at the Secondary School Course Guide (OCDSB website) in order for students to review the courses offered at their secondary school.
