TCDSB Orientation Centre

The Orientation Centre for new Canadian students was established in 1988 in order to interview, test, evaluate and place students in TCDSB high schools. This is the primary mandate of the orientation centre.

The Orientation Centre welcomes newly arrived secondary school students and their families to the TCDSB and provides a general introduction to the educational system in the Province of Ontario, and specifically to TCDSB high schools.

To learn more about their services or to book an appointment, visit the Orientation Centre website.


TCDSB eLearning is online education in a secure environment where learners take high quality courses within day school developed by the Ministry of Education. Courses are taught by TCDSB secondary teaching staff. Students are supported, assessed and evaluated in a timely manner similar to the regular classroom. Courses are delivered asynchronously, with the expectation that students login regularly.

Day eLearning is available to all senior students with a limit of one course per semester (semestered schools) or 2 courses per year (in full year schools). Exceptions are possible for fifth-year students. As per new ministry requirements, all students are required to complete two online learning (asynchronous) day e-learning courses in order to graduate. Students can formally request to opt out of the online learning graduation requirement through myBlueprint at course selection time.

As of the second semester this school year, students have the option to take eLearning courses through other school boards (same rules above still apply). Please refer to your Guidance Teacher - Counsellor for more details.
