Curriculum Content and Ministry of Education Requirements

The e2 academic content follows the Ontario Ministry of Education requirements for courses, course content, hours of instruction, and assessment and evaluation. This allows The Element to be inspected by the Ministry of Education and authorized to grant Ontario Secondary School Credits, just as a public high school does. Our last inspection was December 17, 2015 and we were granted authority to offer credits for two years, the maximum amount of time that is allowed.

The e2 program is rigorous and offers all the mandatory courses required for the Ontario Secondary School Diploma as well as a variety of elective courses in all discipline areas. These are generally offered at the University Preparation level, although the courses can be adapted for a College Preparation level if it is in the best interest of particular student.
