Ontario Catholic School Graduation Expectations (OCSGE)
In 1998, the first edition of the Ontario Catholic School Graduate Expectations was released within the Catholic education community. Immediately they were used as a framework for designing Ontario Catholic curriculum, in the development of youth leadership, teacher education and administrative programs and to support the work of local board initiatives.
In 2011, the second edition of the Ontario Catholic School Graduate Expectations has been released. After extensive consultation within the Catholic community the seven overall and fifty-two specific expectations have been validated and remain unchanged. The second edition does however provide a revised preface, a new format, an accompanying DVD, I Believe, and samples of practice in the use of the Ontario Catholic School Graduate Expectations.
The Institute for Catholic Education invites all stakeholders to continue to embrace and use the Ontario Catholic School Graduate Expectations to guide their programming and work in Catholic education.
