Community Service Hours

Students may begin accumulating Community Service Hours the summer before they enter grade 9. It is the responsibility of the student and parent to research and sign on for community service involvement. Ideas can be found posted on the bulletin board outside the Main Office in the Atrium of the school entitled "Community Service." Requests for students to support community activities are also published in our daily announcements.

The latest information on community service requirements can be found on the Community Involvement Activities page on the OCSB website.

Academic Support

Peer Tutors are available to support students in grades 7- 11 in a variety of courses. Tutors meeting with their students once a week at an agreed upon time, usually after school for an hour. Most peer tutors charge $15 a session. It is the responsibility of the student/parent to pay the tutor directly, as well as to inform the tutor it he/she cannot make an agreed upon session.

Applications can be accepted for those students in grades 9 - 12 wishing to become Peer Student Tutors. A training session for Peer Tutors will be scheduled at lunchtime in Student Services. Please ensure that you have submitted an application before attending the training session.

There are also many Professional Tutors in our community. We have a data base in Student Services. As well, we will try to add information here as it becomes available to us!

High-performance athletes & artists

If your child is a high performing athlete or artist at the provincial, national, or international level, we understand they need the flexibility to train while continuing with their academic studies. Contact your guidance counsellor to discuss accommodations for your child.

Grade 7 & 8 Resource

Each year, there is a "Grade 6 into 7 Parent Information Meeting". The date and time are TBA. Parents of students currently in grade 6 at each of our feeder schools, as well as any families living within the All Saints boundary, are invited to attend.

High School Resource

Resource Delivery

All students require support from teachers, classmates, family, and friends in order to thrive and to gain full benefit from their school experience. Some students have special needs that require supports beyond those ordinarily received in the school setting. In Ontario, students who have behavioural, communicational, intellectual, physical or multiple exceptionalities, may have educational needs that cannot be met through regular instructional and assessment practices. These needs may be met through accommodations, and/or an educational program that is modified above or below the age-appropriate grade level expectations for a particular subject or course. Such students may be formally identified as exceptional pupils. The ministry sets out definitions of exceptionalities that must be used by school boards after determining that a student is an “exceptional pupil”.


Our Vision at All Saints

  • Supporting an inclusionary classroom where all learners, regardless of ability, can learn, participate and thrive.

  • Creating a room where all feel welcome, safe and supported.

  • Supporting the classroom teacher through direct classroom/student support and indirect support (curriculum and management - planning, brainstorming and modifying)

The IEP

An IEP is a written plan describing the special education program and/or services required by a particular student, based on a thorough assessment of the student's strengths and needs that affect the student's ability to learn and demonstrate learning.

IEPs are developed at the beginning of the year and are typically sent home in October. The IEP is a working document.

Self Advocacy

Self advocacy is the most important skill that you will develop in high school. You must learn to politely stand up for yourself and be able to state your needs. Be assertive but not aggressive!

Advanced Placement

All Saints is the only OCSB school that offers the Advance Placement Program — university level course study and exams that you can take in high school. Through AP Exams, students can earn university credit and placement.

We offer exam only AP in all subject areas depending on the availability of teacher mentors. Fees vary from year to year based on the rate set by the College Board, exchange rates and administrative costs.

Taking AP courses in high school can give you an advantage in university by letting you:

  • earn university credit,

  • earn advanced placement by skipping introductory first year courses,

  • save money and time,

  • give you a deeper understanding of first year concepts,

  • give you an optional credit in university.


Most universities in Canada accept AP, but you should check with the university you are interested in attending. You can find more information on the College Board website.


Read a story from the BBC about how AP helps students stand out in the university admissions process globally.
