Ontario Credit Online: Parents are sometimes reluctant to enrol their kids in online courses fearing that all will be for naught when any credit earned is deemed academically unfit for official transcripts. It’s an understandable concern but one that is entirely unwarranted when it comes to courses offered by the Jewish Virtual High School (JVHS). JVHS is a division of Torah High. Torah High is inspected every two years by the Ontario MOE and allowed to issue Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) credits. OSSD credits are the same ones earned by any student in Ontario who attends a traditional brick and mortar high school.
Even if your son or daughter is already registered as a full or part-time student at an inspected private or public school in Ontario they can still receive Ontario credit online for courses taken through JVHS. No permission is needed from the school although you may need to check with the particular school’s guidance regarding which outside classes they recognize.
There are some who consider online education a passing fad but as each year passes and education becomes more and more entwined with the online experience those voices are beginning to fade into the background. The JVHS may be the first Jewish online school offering Ontario credit online but in that sense we’re pioneers, not a one-off. Here are some of the reasons we believe online learning is here to stay:
Online learning is here to stay and will only expand in scope over the coming years. As it does JVHS will continue to lead the way for Jewish high school students to earn Ontario credit online, fulfil their compulsory educational requirements and learn more about their unique history, culture and traditions.
