The electronic translation service on the Toronto District School Board website is hosted by Google Translate, a third party service. The TDSB does not guarantee or warrant the reliability, accuracy or completeness of any translated information.

The quality of the translation will vary in some of the languages offered by Google. Google Translate is a free service and currently offers translation in over 100 languages, but does not capture all languages or dialects.

The basic translation goal is to capture the general intention of the original English material. Before you act on translated information, we encourage you to confirm any facts that are important to you or may affect any decisions you make.

The Toronto District School Board is committed to equity and community engagement, and by providing this tool, we are making our information more accessible to families whose first language is not English.

Adult High Schools

The TDSB’s five adult high schools support more than 12,000 learners to find a career pathway and to meet their academic goals every year.

Our adult schools offer a variety of credit courses for learners who want to complete their Ontario Secondary School Diploma, prepare for college or university, or gain job-related training, along with specialty programs like Personal Support Worker and Practical Nursing.

We also have EdVance, a program specifically for 18-20-year-olds completing their high school diploma.

PLAR - Prior Learning Assessment Recognition

Credit for learning and experience outside of the classroom. Are you:

  • at least 18 years old?
  • returning to school as a mature student after being out of school for at least 1 year?
  • enrolled in a Toronto District School Board (TDSB) high school credit program toward the Ontario School Secondary School Diploma (OSSD)?

If you answer yes to these questions, you may be eligible for Prior Learning Assessment Recognition (PLAR).  This is a formal evaluation to grant  high school credits for past learning, training, work and volunteer experience, hobbies and interests, and knowledge of a first language (other than English or French). You could be granted up to 26 of the 30 credits needed for an OSSD through the PLAR process.  The last four grade 11 or 12 credits cannot be granted. They must be earned through formal education. To find out if you are eligible for PLAR, contact  the Guidance Counsellor at  your TDSB Adult Day School or Night School.
