Dual Credits

What is a Dual Credit?

Dual credit programs are ministry-approved programs that allow students, while they are still in secondary school, to take college or apprenticeship courses that count towards both the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) and a postsecondary certificate, diploma, degree or a Certificate of Apprenticeship.

Dual Credits may be offered in an HDSB secondary school (team taught model) or at the college (college delivered model).

GDHS currently runs full programs in partnership with Humber College and has students participating in various programs in partnership with other schools and Sheridan College.

Why take Dual Credits?

  • To earn both a high school and college credit at the same time

  • To determine if college learning is suitable for you

  • To experience a particular course at the college level from a college instructor

  • To explore a college campus and learn about opportunities at a particular college
