BrightMinds: Who We Are

Vision and Mission

Here at BrightMinds Online School, being unique is a good thing. We use this term to reflect the reason why many students choose us for their high school needs. Some of you might feel that a traditional classroom environment does not meet your learning style. You might prefer a "drama free" high school experience. You may be older, returning to high school to change academic or career path. You might be interested in a course that your high school does not offer or might be in need of upgrading a mark. Whatever your "reason" might be, you have a place at BrightMinds learning community. We are a global community of learners with students coming from different countries. From homeschooled students to those with athletics and/or other specialized training on their daily schedule, to students with different learning abilities, we have come together with the common goal of learning.

As a fully online, self-paced Ontario Secondary school, we are committed to helping our students achieve their short-term and long- term goals. Our education follows the most current guidelines and expectations set forth by the Ontario Ministry of Education and takes advantage of latest educational software and technologies to provide you the opportunity to learn and earn a credit while improving your learning skills and abilities.
We invite you to join our safe and enriching community of learners.

We will provide parents and students with a thorough understanding and appreciation of the expectations and possibilities within the Ontario education system.

The Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) requires that students successfully complete at least 30 credits, 18 compulsory and 12 optional courses. In addition, students are required to complete 40 hours’ worth of community involvement and must successfully pass the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT). You can learn more about the Ontario Education System, by watching our detailed presentation.

We offer online prep classes for OSSLT. Students who are unsuccessful in passing the Literacy Test can enroll in our online Literacy Course, OSSLC.
