Pickering College - Learning For Life. Creating The Future.
High School student learning online

Online Credits

Our online credits offer the perfect blend of synchronous and asynchronous activities to keep learners engaged and on track. Weekly synchronous lessons and extra help opportunities allow students to interact with their teacher and check their learning in real time. Independent asynchronous tasks allow students to work at their own pace and organize their time in a way that works with their own summer schedule. Students will access their course through Google classroom. All synchronous activities will be recorded and available to any students who are unable to attend a live lesson. This year, we are offering Grade 12 Advanced Functions, Grade 12 Global Leadership: Theory to Action and ESL credits. Our online credits are a fantastic option for students wishing to work ahead over the summer.
