The Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) is a globally recognized credential issued by the Ontario, Canada Ministry of Education. Rosedale Global High School (Rosedale) is licensed by the Ontario Ministry of Education to provide instructional programming to private/international schools that leads to the OSSD and is the largest and most successful provider of the OSSD outside of Canada. As the OSSD distribution and operating school partner of Rosedale, St. Uriel Education (STU) also facilitates in the development of articulation programs and “Through-Train OSSD & degree” courses with recognized universities, enrichment, and co-curricular courses and ESG community service programs.
Rosedale centrally manages the academic administration of the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) for Rosedale Global High School from the head office in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Students attending Rosedale Global High School with an international partner school (eg. your school) register with Rosedale Global High School and are granted an OSSD upon meeting the graduation requirements.
Value added education pathways:
Students at your school taking the Rosedale/OSSD courses will be registered with the Ontario Ministry of Education. This provides students with the opportunity to immigrate to Canada for university work and, if interested, gain residency after graduation. In addition, as students are registered with the Ministry of Education, they are eligible for both Canadian and International scholarship monies if they attend a university in Canada. Certainly, these items are “added value” in obtaining a Rosedale/OSSD diploma in addition to the local high school.
Students will be taught in the physical classroom by your teachers, using Rosedale’s top curriculum, teaching methods, comprehensive e-learning and teaching resources. All formal assessments are graded in Toronto by certified Ontario Certified Teachers (OCTs) employed by Rosedale. This creates a higher level of academic accountability which greatly helps in the admissions process of world-wide universities.
Differentiated, high quality education:
Different from most programs, such as IB (International Baccalaureate) or Cambridge, each course is built on higher order thinking skills (HOTS). Each course has 15 different modules. Seventy percent of the grade for each course is through formative assessments of these modules while thirty percent of the grade for each course is through summative assessments (the opposite of most international programs).
Due to the fundamentally different instructional design, some of our partner schools offer both a traditional international program (with summative high-stake testing) and the Rosedale program (formative approach as described above). This allows for students/parents to choose the learning style that is best suited for them. In addition, many partner schools run their national secondary program along with the Rosedale OSSD program. As part of this model, Rosedale will review course work taken by a student in their national program and credit it to the completion of the Rosedale/OSSD program.
Award winning, proven success:
In the past two years, Rosedale has won the prestigious PIE award (London-based) and the top Canadian Education Technology Provider award (Canadian-based). Rosedale’s Class of 2022 received letters of offer from 14 countries with an average of 3.6 university offers per student. 100% of the students were accepted to global universities.
