Toronto Catholic District School Board

Purpose

Purpose

The Orientation Centre has proved to be a reliable and viable program within the TCDSB.  Over the years its personnel has assessed thousands of students from outside Ontario and Canada. The OC personnel also conduct interviews in many of our clients’ languages. Overseas transcripts are assessed and the Ontario high school credit equivalency is granted.  This has made the job of placement at any grade and level within the individual schools a very efficient one.  The Orientation Centre does not only assess ESL , it has also placed a high percentage of new students, in regular English and Math programs.

In addition, the Orientation Centre liaises with various community agencies and colleges, thereby easing the transitional period for students and their families in Toronto.  Over the years the Orientation Centre has accumulated a lot of expertise in placement and assessment.  Its teacher personnel also work in the classroom besides carrying out their placement duties.
