Purpose


Photo of two ELL students, both holding open books in their hands. One student is pointing at something on the open page of the book that the other one is holding out towards him.
The Orientation Centre has proved to be a reliable and viable program within the TCDSB. Over the years, our personnel have assessed thousands of students from outside Ontario and Canada.

Our 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, but 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. Our teacher personnel also work in the classroom, in addition to carrying out their placement duties.
