All of JTeach Academy’s courses comply with Ministry of Education policies and guidelines in which there is a minimum of 110 hours of instruction in accordance with Ontario Secondary Schools Program Diploma Requirements (OSSD).

Experiential learning may be part of the delivery of the curriculum in all disciplines and provides students with a chance to apply their classroom learning to outside opportunities.  

JTeach Academy’s courses include those whereby students will be completing experiential requirements that are tied directly to the curriculum expectations of their courses. Experiential opportunities include seminars, weekend retreats, course trips, guest lectures, and field trips, etc., and are completed outside of the regular class hours.  Students are given the opportunity to reflect upon the experiential experience by completing evaluations of each experience they attend.  Students bring it all together through classroom discussions and a written report that connects the sessions to the course expectations.


Co-operative education programs allow you to earn secondary school credits while completing a work placement in the community. These programs complement your academic programs and are valuable for all students, whatever their postsecondary destination.

JTeach Academy does not offer co-operative education.


Job shadowing allows for students to spend half a day, and up to three days, observing a worker in a specific occupation. Job twinning allows students to observe a cooperative education student at his/her placement for one-half to one day. 

JTeach Academy does not offer job shadowing or twinning to our students in Grades 9-12 as part of curriculum.
