GLCT fast track university preparation program

The Great Lakes College of Toronto (GLCT) is one of the few high schools in the province of Ontario that offers five student in-take times per school year. You may wonder why we have so many semesters in one calendar year. In Canada, there are two main admission times when universities accept new students, September and January. In addition, some universities also admit students in May for the summer session.

• April/June Semester Intake Graduates enter university by January of the next year.

• November/January/April Semester Intake Graduates enter university by the following September.

GLCT Grades 9-12

University/college preparation courses include content that is relevant for the study of both university and college programs. These courses are designed to equip students with the knowledge and skills they need to meet the entrance requirements for specific university and college programs. Six Grade 12 university or university/college preparation courses are required for university entrance.

glct-English as a Second Language ESL program

Our five-level English a Second Language (ESL) program is based on the curriculum developed by the Ontario Ministry of Education and is taught by a staff of highly professional teachers. This program enables students to acquire effective communication skills in all areas of language study, including reading, writing, speaking, and listening. It enables students to achieve the standard of English necessary to succeed in high school and university courses. Students may finish one ESL level in two months.

Summer Camp

Since 1994, our college has offered Language Study and summer Camp Tours. The success of these summer camps has grown each year, attracting young people from all over the world. Our summer camp program allows students to learn and practice their English as a Second Language (ESL) skills and at the same time, have fun visiting major attractions in Toronto, and other areas in the provinces of Ontario and Quebec.
