Job Description

If you are an educator at heart and would like to be part of a team of experienced Ontario certified teachers who are all committed to providing a thriving educational environment, we encourage you to apply for an online teaching position with Ontario Virtual School (OVS).

OVS is looking for energetic teachers who are experts in their field and who motivate and inspire students.

OVS requires part-time and full-time teachers, with flexible start dates, in a variety of subject areas. 

For application details, please visit the Ontario Virtual School Employment page.

Ontario Virtual School (OVS) is an accredited online school with the right to issue (OSSD) Secondary School Diploma credits. OSSD credits are the same credits issued by all public schools in Ontario, which count towards the Ontario Secondary School Diploma. All our online high school courses follow the Ontario Curriculum. 

OVS was inspired by the founding principle that every student can be successful and reach their academic potential when they are engaged and active in their learning. OVS recognized that the traditional educational system was no longer able to meet the diverse needs of today’s learners. Driven by the obvious need for an alternative learning system, the school created a model that allows students to start and complete their courses at any time and maintain complete control over their learning pace.

The inspiration behind OVS’s launch back in 2010 stemmed from the recognition of a basic need. The need for an online school that could better meet the needs of students globally. OVS provides a supportive learning environment for those students who cannot attend classes on a regular basis due to personal or health-related reasons, athletic commitments, or full-time jobs. Ontario Virtual School also helps students upgrade their marks in challenging courses, allowing them the opportunity to improve their understanding and increase their chances of gaining acceptance into competitive post-secondary programs.

Although the idea of online learning may not be unique, Ontario Virtual School’s approach was. OVS created a dynamic and interactive multi-media platform which was far more engaging than simply just reading text on a screen. OVS believed that a varied assessment and evaluation strategy best allows teachers to gauge their students understanding of course content. This meant moving away from random computer-generated multiple-choice tests and exams to evaluations that are teacher-driven and tailored to a student’s strength.

Quality lessons, varied teacher-led assessments and outstanding customer service form the building blocks of Ontario Virtual School, and it is these pillars which have led to our tremendous growth and our student’s remarkable success. Pioneering the school in 2010 with only three course offerings and half a dozen students, OVS stands proudly today with over 130 courses and a staff of more than 100+ OCT certified instructors to service our 9000+ students from around the world.
