Academic Programs
at Westfield!

At Westfield Secondary School we provide a fine balance between a liberal arts and progressive education. Experiential learning is combined with analytical and creative thinking. Real world connections solidify classroom work and provide context. All of which is inspected by the Ministry of Education that bestows Westfield with the authority to grant credit courses towards earning an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD).

The school year is divided into three semesters. This allows students to achieve 10 credits (1 per course) in an academic year. Additional support is provided after school in study hall: We prepare students for the mandatory Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test, teachers offer homework support, and there is even an optional IELTS course on Saturdays aimed to strengthen English literacy skills as well as higher score of IELTS.

COMMUNITY SERVICES

Community Involvement Requirement

Every student who begins Secondary School in Ontario is required to complete 40 hours of community involvement in order to receive their Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD). By volunteering their time within the community, students’ sense of civic responsibility and global citizenship is strengthened and broadened. Many students volunteer their time to help people in need or charitable organizations that raise money to benefit a wide range of noble causes. It is truly an enriching experience and one that often inspires a career choice.
