School-College-Work Junction Initiative (IJECT)

The School-College-Workplace Initiative (IJECT) is the result of a collaboration aimed at ensuring a smooth transition for high school students heading to college. The initiative provides students, teachers, parents and the entire community with a wealth of learning and learning opportunities. The collaboration between high schools and colleges under the IJECT allows the offering of dual credit courses (DRC) for high school students. Some examples offered by the Conseil scolaire catholique de district des Grandes Rivières include:

  • anticipation camps at colleges for high school students;
  • career exploration courses in a variety of fields;
  • online courses in Microsoft Software and Positive Psychology.

Dual credit programs

Dual credit programs allow high school students to register for college courses. Students who meet college standards in these courses will earn credits toward both the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) and a college diploma. Eligible students can earn up to a maximum of four credits through these programs.

Dual credit programs are aimed at:

  • to students experiencing great difficulties during their secondary studies;
  • students taking part in the Specialist High Skills Major (MHS) programs;
  • students participating in the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program (OYAP).

Admission to dual credit programs is overseen by the school's or school board's success team.
