Ontario eSchool is an Online High School in the Province of Ontario, Canada and has the authority to grant credits toward the Ontario Secondary School Diploma. Ontario eSchool has a highly experienced team of administrators and Ontario certified teachers committed to academic excellence and will prepare students to exceed their expectations and achieve outstanding success in a global community.
To become a world leader in online high school education and to become an integral part of our student’s educational experience.
Ontario eSchool’s mission is to inspire our students to be effective communicators, critical and creative thinkers, collaborate with others and become life long learners in full awareness of themselves within a global community.
In the present, international students must update their skills to the level of the local Canadian students by taking courses in situ, can be one, two or three depending of the bachelor degree they want to register for.
Link Education is not changing the rules: we are going to send the application form to different universities and get from them their decision for the prerequisite courses required. Two options can be pursued by the students:
- To travel and take the course/s in Canada which constitute an additional burden for the parents: travel expenses, homestay, food, extremely high course charges, personal expenses.
- To take the course/s online at a very decent cost, from an eschool recognised and accredited by the Ministry of Education without any additional cost.
- Additionally, having Canadian diplomas on hand will enhance the chances for the students to pass successfully the Canadian visa application.

Affordable: Traveling abroad to a distant country, as a Visa student can be a very expensive ordeal. Registering for Ontario eSchool courses significantly reduces the cost of getting an international education and work within the comforts of your own home, eliminating travel costs, overseas living expenses and enormous Visa student tuition fees.
Accredited: Our courses follow or exceed the Ministry’s rigorous curriculum guidelines. Your work is reviewed and graded by Ontario-certified teachers. Your transcripts are officially embossed with an Ontario high school seal and your Diploma is signed by the Ontario Minister of Education.
The twenty first century student is faced with growing competition from within and beyond the borders of their own country. Students must take advantage of the accessibility to higher learning and strive to reach their full potential. To emphasize the importance of high school education and its commitment to educate students until adulthood, the Ontario Government has made it mandatory for Ontario students to attend school until the age of 18 (or until the OSSD is obtained). Students can take advantage of Ontario eSchool’s open and continuous enrollment to supplement their own programs. The Ontario eSchool platform allows students globally to complete and/or supplement their education utilizing online technology from any place in the world at anytime of day or night.
An online teacher will manage the course as the students work their way through the curriculum. The course content is online, as assignments are completed and submitted through the system, teachers will return them within 3 days graded and with constructive comments. Students can track their progress and have access to updated marks at all times.
Whether it is one course or several, Ontario eSchool puts the student in the “driver’s seat” of their education. Students who need more time to practice their learning can choose to move slowly through their course whereas they may move quickly through other portions of their courses to remain engaged. If the student isn’t ready to write a test on a certain unit or concept, he/she can review the material, ask the teacher for help and then write the test when he/she feels completely ready to do so.
Ontario eSchool courses are unique! Within each course students will interact with a live teacher online. Students will have several 1 hour blocks of time each week to practice their learning one-on-one with a Certified Ontario College Teacher. Teachers will be able to directly help, motivate, and engage students as they navigate through our courses. This live interaction will also allow teachers to continuously assess a student’s progress and give them timely and effective feedback for a successful experience.
