Online Virtual High School Classes & Credit Courses in Ontario


Vision and Mission

BrightMinds Online School is a multicultural institute committed to providing students with an academic experience that is engaging, enriching and full of opportunities for intellectual and social development. We encourage our students to become critical thinkers and doers, to be more curious about the world they live in, and to be confident in expressing their ideas and following their dreams.
Our philosophy is inspired by the Nobel Prize Winner and Education Activist Malala Yousafzai:
“One book, one pen, one child, and one teacher can change the world”.

Bright Minds Online School caters to the academic needs of local and international students who are studying at high school level. We offer grade 9 to 12 Ontario credit courses fully online. BrightMinds’ well-designed curriculum, interactive course content, qualified e-learning instructors and easy to use online platform gives students a rare opportunity to personalize their learning experience in accordance to their learning styles, academic needs, career goals and demanding schedule. BrightMinds is registered and inspected by the Ontario Ministry of Education. All courses offered at BrightMinds count towards the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) and are transferred to Ontario Student Transcript (OST).


From the onset, BrightMinds’ administrative team will provide parents and students with a thorough understanding and appreciation of the Ontario Education System. Appointments can be made by email or by phone for academic and career counselling.

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.

BrightMinds offers a wide range of compulsory and optional credit courses for each grade level. Our guidance helps students in finding proper placement for their community hours. We offer online prep classes for OSSLT. Students who are unsuccessful in passing the Literacy Test can enrol in our online Literacy Course, OSSLC.
