As you have likely heard from the media and TDSB communications, we have pivoted to full remote learning. This will last until at least February 10th pending further announcements. The basic structure of our timetable is not changing. However, cohorts are being abandoned and there is no longer “working from home” periods. Teachers will be inviting the entire class (both cohorts) to their live (eg. Zoom, Google Meet) lessons, two days in a row. Below is a visual chart of what it looks like:

Yorkdale Secondary School

Our EdVance Program is a specialized quadmestered high school for students between 18 to 20 years of age.  We welcome students who are new to Canada, as well as students who are in need of a fresh start, or looking to upgrade for post-secondary goals.  EdVance is an intensive and highly personal full-time program.  Students in our EdVance Program are committed and serious about learning.  Our specialized teachers and support staff help our students build self-confidence as they develop their academic skills, and we strive to meet all of our students’ needs, academically, socially, and emotionally.  If a student’s goal is to graduate and enter the workforce, or pursue college or university opportunities, our EdVance Programs helps them reach their goals.  We offer a wide range of subjects that balance a strong emphasis on literacy and numeracy. In addition, Co-operative Education placements provide real-world tests of a student’s abilities and maturity.

Yorkdale Secondary School students have a great opportunity to earn credits fast, and at the same time, can take advantage of PLAR (Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition) to earn credits for knowledge and skills acquired outside of the classroom.  Our students enjoy a free nutrition break every lunch, small class sizes, dedicated and caring teachers, plus guidance counselors, social worker, spec.ed coordinator, and child/youth counselor to provide ongoing support.

Enrolment is limited!!!
