Yes, it is possible! Fulford Academy offers a Dual High School Diploma program which allows you to take six courses over three years (two per year) through Fulford Academy’s hybrid (online and in-class instruction) program. You graduate with a diploma in your home country, as well as the coveted Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD). This gives you an advantage when applying to universities in North America. As a Dual High School Diploma program student, you are required to take two of your courses in-person on campus at Fulford Academy during one or more summers.
If you’re a homeschooled student, Fulford Academy will be considered the primary school for your Ontario Student Record, so your student record will be stored with us.
Fulford Academy uses the popular and user-friendly platform, Google Classroom. This interface is the industry standard for modern classrooms around the world. Google Classroom allows you to access your course through a laptop, tablet or smartphone. Each online course follows the same schedule as the in-class course. Watch our demo.
Please find the full requirements for OSSD credits on Fulford's High School Requirements page.
You will need the following:
- Strong internet connection

Depending on your time on enrolment, our online courses follow either a blended or synchronous model. Each week, a new module will be released for you to review at your own pace during that week, including videos from your teacher, supplementary materials, assignments, and projects. You can connect with your teacher through the online platform to ensure you are understanding the material and it fits your particular learning style. View our demo

Fulford Academy teachers are Canadian-trained teachers. They not only offer academic support but also offer encouragement, empathy, and guidance, much like you would expect in a traditional classroom environment. Fulford Academy teachers are dedicated to your learning goals and are here for you every step of the way.
Online students receive feedback and marks on projects, tests, and exams through the Google Classroom portal. You can review feedback with your teacher in more detail over video chat. View our demo.
Not all courses have exams. Some will have final projects instead. For courses with final exams, exams will be proctored or students can write them through Google Hangouts with teacher supervision.
When your mark is final and your course credit is issued, the information will be sent to your home school to process and add to your high school transcript. If you are an international student, it will be mailed to you.
Within two weeks of the start of the course, students can withdraw from a course and be refunded two-thirds of payment. If a student needs to withdraw or defer their course for a medical reason after the first two-week period, it will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis by the Academics team.
