Meet the Secondary School Literacy Graduation Requirement

The Literacy Requirement is based on the reading and writing expectations in the Ontario curriculum up to the end of Grade 9 and ensures students have the reading and writing skills to be successful in school, at work, and in daily life. The Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT) is the standard means for meeting the Literacy Requirement.

Students who pass the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Course (OSSLC) are also considered to have met the Literacy Requirement.

  1. To meet individual student needs, principals may replace up to 3 of the 18 compulsory credits from the remainder of those that meet the compulsory credit requirements (substitutions).
  2. English as a second language and English literacy development: A maximum of 3 credits may be used to meet requirements for English compulsory credits.
