PREVIOUS STUDENT registration for Quad 3 is limited but we still have some courses available for returning students from CALC, or other TDSB and Ontario secondary schools who have recently achieved the pre-requisites.

NEW STUDENT Registration for Quad 3 is now closed. Registration for Quad 4 will begin in March. Please visit our Registration page Mid-March for information on when and where to pick up an appointment.  Meanwhile, if you are eager to further language studies in English, please contact the YMCA Language Assessment Services  to book an assessment appointment. Once you have the assessment you will likely be directed to a LINC (Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada) in your local neighbourhood. Study at LINC until you reach level 5/level 6 and then you should be well-prepared to be successful in our ESL classes at CALC.
