Course selection

Although it may seem soon to be thinking about next year, it’s never too early to start planning! It is important that parents and guardians are involved in the process of course selection, helping students keep in mind their goals for the future, graduation requirements, and their particular gifts and passions.

This year, our course selection process will be slightly different than in previous years.
In the coming weeks, HD staff will be developing concept timetables for the next two academic years. With this information, students will be able to have a clear and stable plan for academic planning through 2021/2022. We will still be using myblueprint.ca to enter course selections, but we will be able to complete these selections later in the academic year.

Parents will receive a reminder email that includes log-in information for myblueprint.ca. For the full details of our program, please look over our 2020-2021 Course Calendar, available under the “Resources” section of our web site. For other helpful resources on Course Selection, visit the Student Services group on EDSBY.

Ontario University Application deadlines

The deadline for Ontario University applications through the OUAC (Ontario Universities Application Centre) is Jan. 15, 2020.

Most students have completed their initial applications through OUAC and OCAS. It is important for all applicants to check their email and online accounts for information on supplementary applications, residence, and financial aid. Remember that most schools require students to register or to log-in to unique on-line accounts. Log-in information is usually provided via an acknowledgment email.

Ontario College Application deadline

The deadline for application to most Ontario college programs is Feb. 1st

Students do not need a password or PIN, but they will need to create an account. Applications are made online through the Ontario College Application Service @ www.ontariocolleges.ca  . Application help workshops will continue on Tuesdays and Thursdays through the next two weeks.


Student transcripts for OUAC and OCAS will be updated shortly after first semester exams. It is very important for students to check their online accounts for accuracy. Students who are enrolled in independent studies or correspondence courses must check their accounts to make sure that all credits are accounted for. Students should ensure that any external (AMDEC, Red Hill, ARCT, GELA, Gary Allen, etc.) marks are reported to Student Services.

Admission Decisions

Admissions decisions: most colleges and universities are currently in the middle of their admission reviews. Some students will receive offers in the coming weeks, others may not receive an offer until second semester mid-terms have been received. Students shouldn’t panic if they have not yet received an offer; the majority of offers are released in late April or early May.

Christian University Applications

Applications for many Christian universities, including Calvin, Dordt, and Redeemer, will continue to be received and reviewed on a rolling basis. It’s not too late to apply!
