" Prepares Graduates for Higher Learning "

The Ontario Secondary School Diploma is a diploma granted to high school graduates in the province of Ontario. It is part of the publicly funded province-wide school system. It is awarded to all students who complete the Ontario education curriculum.

The main advantage conferred by obtaining the OSSD is access to the best university and college programs in Ontario and the rest of Canada. Most postsecondary educational institutions will require a valid and complete OSSD to consider application into their programs.

The mission of NOIC is to inspire students to improve their lives and expand their horizons through a lifelong commitment to learning, by empowering students to achieve their academic potential, to build self-confidence, and to develop a global vision which embraces cultural differences and promotes cultural exchanges.

Thank you so much for the great care you have given to my boy in studies and in life! Your dedication and passion toward education are highly respectable and bliss to the students. My boy is lucky to have you as his mentor. I wish to thank NOIC Academy and you personally.
