Grade 12 in Quebec
Quebec English independent schools are doing their best to offer programs that increase a student’s options while political forces work diligently to enact laws designed to reduce the number of students in English schools. In the 1970’s there were nearly 250,000 students enrolled in English schools. Today there are less than 75,000.
The ‘Grade 12’ option in Quebec is a strategic option for students that allows them to graduate from high school and apply directly to University, as would students in every other province in Canada. Many of the Quebec schools, listed below, partner with Ontario schools. This means the student graduates with an Ontario Secondary School Certificate (OSSD).

E-School Option: Maybe not for everyone, but there is another option open to Quebec students. There are several online schools where one can complete Grade 12. The advantages are: lower cost, study at your own pace and at your own time, and obtaining an Ontario Secondary School Certificate OSSD. Check out Virtual High School, they are located in Bayfield Ontario and in our opinion are one of the best online schools in Canada. The VHS program is in fact licensed by some Quebec private schools that are currently offering Grade 12.

Recent language law reforms in Quebec, known as Bill 96 (Law 14), have been implemented to safeguard the French language. These reforms bring about new restrictions and curriculum changes for English language CEGEPs. Notably, the enrollment of English CEGEP students will be limited to a maximum of 17.5% of the entire CEGEP network. Starting in 2024, English CEGEP students will be required to take five courses in French. Students with a Certificate of Eligibility (COE) have the option to take all five credits as French as a Second Language courses or mix regular courses in French. On the other hand, students without a COE must choose a combination of French as a second language and regular classes in French. Additionally, students without a COE must pass an exam in French called Épreuves uniformes en langue d’enseignement et littérature (ÉULEL) in order to graduate, a requirement also applicable to French CEGEP students.
