Registration Opens January 31 for Ottawa-Carleton Virtual (OCV) School for the 2023-2024 School Year

With planning underway for September 2023, we wanted to share that OCV Elementary and Secondary schools will be accepting registrations for the 2023-2024 school year. For some families, OCV has been and will continue to be an important choice for their learning needs. Registration for OCV for the 2023-2024 school year will be open from January 31 to February 14, 2023. 

Is OCV the right choice for you?

OCV is a virtual learning community made up of K-12 students from across the district. Qualified OCDSB teachers provide instruction based on the Ontario curriculum. Students attend live remote classes for 300 minutes each day, facilitated by an educator. However please note, there are some limitations on program availability -  Middle French Immersion, Alternative, ESL/ELD programs, and Specialized Program Classes are not available through an OCV campus. The specialized program class model provides a multi-disciplinary approach to intervention that cannot be replicated through a virtual learning environment. OCV offers Early French Immersion in Grades 1 - 8, in a 50/50 model (50% English and 50% French).

Students attending OCV must be living in Ottawa full time; extended travel is not permitted.

How Do I Register?

If you are planning for in-person learning, no action is required. By default, all students currently at OCV who want to return to in-person learning next year will be returned. Action is only required if you want to return to OCV next year or register at OCV for September 2023.

If you would like your child(ren) to attend OCV in September 2023, here is the process for registration:

  • Register - Complete the Registration Form by February 14, 2023. 
  • By the end of February, OCV will reach out to parents/guardians to confirm with families who have registered for OCV for September 2023. 

We will still be accepting student registrations after February 14th. However, we have asked for a commitment at this time to assist us with staffing. We continue to ask that families register with the understanding that this is a commitment for the full school year. We recognize that families’ needs can change and after the application period we will consider requests for OCV on a case-by-case basis, but we will not be able to guarantee space.
