About Beaconhouse

Beaconhouse operates private high schools in Mississauga and has been helping students achieve their academic goals since 2003.

Since 2003 Beaconhouse has operated ministry inspected, licensed and approved high schools focused on helping students obtain the Ontario high school credits they need for their Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD).

Our founders’ vision was to provide an alternate school to students at an economical cost. Working with small groups of students, we have been successful in enabling them to meet the high expectations of admissions into the best universities and colleges.

We specialize in helping students get the university and college offers they seek. How do we do this? Our students have success in getting university offers because we provide the flexibility and choice they need. Students can choose to study part time or full time with us. With small, flexible classes and the focused assistance required to excel academically.

We offer most of the required Ontario high school credits from Grade 9 to Grade 12, an English Language Program and university preparation and placement assistance. In addition to our broad range of courses we also offer an Adult Literacy course and a number of other short courses to help you along many career and life paths.

Principal's Message - 12 Years of Success

The 21st century has brought many opportunities and challenges for our youth.

  • Excellence is the rule, rather than the exception at Beaconhouse and as a result the number of students we teach continues to grow. In addition, the excellent level of success that these students have in obtaining university acceptance is consistently strong year after year.

    Over the 12 years we have been teaching, we have watched our knowledge-based society put more and more pressure and expectations on students. The 21st century has brought many opportunities and challenges for our youth. Still, one of the surest routes to success has always been for students to obtain the best possible education - preparing them for the tough choices of the future.

    Recently, the Ontario Ministry of Education has updated the high school curriculum in an attempt to make the Ontario High School Diploma (OSSD) much more relevant and in line with the challenges of modern times. Here at Beaconhouse, our philosophy reflects these same high standards of development for today's youth as they prepare to enter the best Canadian Universities.

  • With our campus in Mississauga, Ontario, Beaconhouse has the capacity to meet the demands of students. Due to the ever-increasing competition for university programs in Ontario, students need a learning environment that helps them excel. We have implemented many core practices that produce proven results. A strong testament to this is demonstrated by the fact that a majority of our students were accepted into a university program last year, with most attending universities in Ontario.

    We are committed to taking a more academically rigorous approach to education, enabling our graduates to be successful in obtaining offers from the university and program of their choice. We are confident that your Beaconhouse experience will be among your most enjoyable and memorable years.

Beaconhouse provides all the benefits of small classroom dynamics while offering credits that can be used towards an Ontario high school diploma. This unique approach gives high school students the competitive edge they need to get into the university or college of their choice. We work in partnership with public high schools to provide academic services that complement Ontario public school systems so that students can get the support they need to graduate as future leaders. Our fully qualified, licensed teachers and flexible schedules give students the personalized attention they need, which is why our success rate is so high. Over 90 percent of Beaconhouse graduates go to the university or college of their choice.

Choose to study full time or part time

Are you looking for an intensive yet flexible full time academic program with small class sizes and concentrated teacher attention. If so, then our flexible start high school trimester for grade 9 - 12 students may be ideal for you. We have a number of starting points in our academic session.

Do you need to upgrade credits in a few courses in order to meet the academic requirements for the university program of your choice? Or perhaps upgrading a credit will help you achieve the prerequisite you need for next year. Our flexible start (flexstart) part time program allows students to take and/or upgrade one or more high school credits during or after regular school hours and on weekends.
