The SWAC initiative is partnered by the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) and George Brown College (GBC) and Centennial College to offer secondary students the opportunity to earn secondary school credits and dual credit ‘General Education’ college credits with the continued goal for our students to complete their Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD)
