Quad 4 ends on Tuesday, June 28th with marks shared by teachers.  The virtual graduation ceremony will air at 11am on Wednesday, June 29th and we offer our sincere congratulations to all of our graduates.(Diplomas are available for pick up between 10:30am and 2:30pm from July 4th to 13th.)

Quad 1 will begin on Thursday, September 8th with fully in-person, and fully online synchronous courses.  The synchronous online courses require online students to be present and participating online during the two hour class time.  

Please see below (or under the Student Services tab on the left) for more information about registering and choosing courses at CALC!


Current students have had the month of June to select courses and will have more opportunities to pick Quad 1 courses when course selection re-opens August 15th.  Please visit the Guidance website August 15th.


If you have attended CALC in previous quads, or have recent transcripts (from the past three years) from an Ontario high school, we will have online applications starting August 15th. There is also an in-person registration at 10am on August 25th for returning CALC students who do not have recent Ontario prerequisites and require math or science assessments.  Since this is a re-registration you will need to show Govt ID, and  if you are new to the TDSB you will need to show transcripts and Cdn Status documents. 


Assessment and registration sessions for NEW students are held in-person only and will be in late August on a first come, first serve basis.  Students are assessed for English and depending on those results and personal goals, on Math and possibly Science. Doors open on August 26th at 9am in the Education Centre at the south end of our campus at 1 Danforth Avenue.  Doors open for new student registration again at 9am on August 29th and also on August 30th.  Classes do fill so there are more choices on the earlier days.
