Barrydowne College is a re-engagement high-school for students aged 18 through 21.

Students who did not complete their high school requirements for their Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) have the opportunity to attend Barrydowne College to finish their diploma requirements.

Barrydowne College has the ability to offer individualized instruction, flexible school hours, as well as blended learning opportunities. We have continuous intake so that students can register at any point in the school year.  Transportation is also provided where eligible.

In addition to offering the regular program of compulsory courses in English, Math, Science, Social Sciences and the Arts (Visual Arts and Music), we have a successful Co-operative Education and Native Studies program.  We are also very excited to offer the Arts & Culture Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM) Program at Barrydowne College!

We are located on the campus of Cambrian College, which gives our students greater access to the Dual Credits offered at the college. Dual Credits provide an opportunity for students to engage in a college course. Upon successful completion of the course, students receive a credit towards their high school diploma as well as one towards their college diploma/program. For more information visit the dual credit tab.
