# High School Credits

Through our academic partnership with Canada eSchool, Above Grade Level is able to provide support for online High School credit courses.

Canada eSchool’s forte is providing online learning courses for high school students in Math, English, Science and more. They are accredited by the Ministry of Education in Ontario and the credit that the student earns is accepted nationally.

### What type of student requires an online high school credit?

- The student that for whatever reason requires a better mark;
- The eager student who wants to take a course that their high school is not offering in a certain semester;
- The student with health related issues that prevent them from attending their local high school;
- The student that is following their professional athletic or arts dream and is away from school a great deal during the school year;
- The student that realizes they are missing a necessary prerequisite in order to gain entry into a college or university program;

provides the credit.

**BUT,
provides the necessary support and guidance for the students to score high grades.**

We at Above Grade Level provide in-home tutoring support for the Math and Science credit courses. However, certain of our tutors may be able to assist students in the other courses offered by Canada eSchool. Please contact your Above Grade Level director if assistance in another course is required.
