Xspace Unicademy China currently runs in Beijing, nested in the international department of The Second High School Attached to Beijing Normal University, a highly reputable local school. This program is operated in strategic partnership with GlobalEd (School District 73’s Business Company in British Columbia) and Virtual High School (a long-established online school in Ontario). All courses are accredited by the British Columbia and Ontario Ministries of Education, and students graduate with an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD).
The Xspace Unicademy China program is a 3-year program spanning from Grades 10-12. The first year of the program (Grade 10) focuses on helping students build foundational English skills and develop North American study habits through various ELL courses and English 10. This is to help students fully prepare for the academic rigor of Grade 11. In Grade 11, students must write and pass the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT), a graduation requirement for obtaining the OSSD. Grade 11 is also spent working closely with our counsellors to plan and prepare for applying to universities.
Students complete all courses required for graduation by the end of first semester in Grade 12. In second semester, students travel to BC to be immersed in Canadian culture as they prepare to attend universities there in the fall. Students also have the opportunity to complete Advanced Placement (AP) courses for university credits and/or to build their portfolio for university applications.
