Night School

About Night School

Night school is open to students from all school boards as well as to adult learners.
The OCDSB’s Continuing Education Department offers two Night School Sessions each year: a Fall Session from September to December, and a Winter Session from February to May. Night School courses are a great opportunity for students to upgrade courses or to take courses that are not available in their home school, as well as for adult learners working towards their Ontario Secondary School Diploma or upgrading their courses.
