Please check the website in the coming weeks for information on registering for Quad 1 in September 2020. Summer E-Learning and Adult Summer School information can be found on the TDSB website at  

Current and returning students who have entered course requests will receive email notices from their teachers by Monday, May 4th, 2020.  (Please check your TDSB student emails if you are an active current student and your personal emails if you are returning from a previous quad or year.)  The school will remain closed until at least May 31st with classes conducted through 'remote learning'.  


The school year at CALC EdVance is divided into 4 quads (Quadmesters). A quad is like a semester in a regular high school, only it is approximately 9 weeks long. Students are required to take a minimum of two (2) courses each quad. Each course is two hours every day. At the end of the term you will earn a credit for each course that you complete and pass.

Age Qualification:

The EdVance program is for students 18-20 years of age. If you are turning 21 before January 1, 2019, you will be directed to CALC’s Adult program. If you do not qualify under this definition then your "home" school or an optional attendance school or a Continuing Education program should accept you. If you do not meet the age criteria and cannot find a suitable alternative, contact the TDSB Placement Centre at 416.393.9300.

Required Documentation:

When you receive your appointment date, there will be a list of item to bring. We will need to see the original documents plus a photocopy of each that will be retained in your school file. There are no photocopiers available at registration; therefore, make sure you bring the photocopies. We will be looking for proof of citizenship, or residence status in Canada, your Ontario Health Card, valid picture ID, and a transcript or credit counseling summary.
