Offering the Ontario Ministry of Education curriculum and the #1 world ranked Ontario Secondary School Diploma, MPS takes a pedagogical approach that is surpassed by none. In small class sizes averaging 10 students, our teachers expertly tailor course delivery to meet our students’ academic, cultural and linguistic needs.

University Qualification Year (UQY)

Our UQY program is designed for students who have a high school diploma from their home country yet are looking to improve their English and academic standing to broaden their university opportunities. The UQY program provides:

  • opportunity to earn the world-renowned Ontario Secondary School Diploma
  • significant advantage over your peers as you enter North American or UK post-secondary institutions

Synchronous Learning

Earn credits towards the #1 ranked Ontario Secondary School Diploma from anywhere in the world

Our synchronous online learning platform is unlike any you will experience anywhere else. A highly sophisticated camera tracks the teacher’s movements and a sensitive microphone and speaker allows the synchronous learner to participate fully in the class. From the synchronous learner’s perspective, it is as if they are sitting in the class with the teacher and their fellow students, able to ask questions and participate in class discussions, group work and presentations. You will enjoy interacting live, real-time, in your MPS class, including hands on experiential learning, immediate feedback and support within the context of true Canadian learning environment.

And if you ever want to join the MPS family in person on campus, the transition is seamless! On campus, living in your oversized dorm room with queen bed and en suite bathroom, you will enjoy all MPS has to offer: over 40 co-curriculars, sports, clubs, activities, field trips, and weekend excursions with students from around the world and around the corner. You will be part of a truly international family – Distinctly Canadian and Uniquely Global.

English As A Second Language (ESL) Foundation

Improve your English in preparation for the Ontario Secondary School Diploma

Our English immersion program allows students to increase their English language skills in preparation for grade 9, 10, 11 and 12 and seamlessly integrate into the North American education system. The success of this program is due to the integration of academics, language acquisition and community involvement. MPS will recommend 1, 2 or 3 semesters of the ESL Foundation Program based on a student’s English competency. Students are continuously evaluated to determine a suitable time to transition into our academic programs.
