What is Destination réussite?
Destination Réussite is an initiative unique to French-Language education, put in place by the Ontario Ministry of Education under the Student Success strategy. Intended for students in French-language high schools in the province, this program aims to support students in their learning and to better support them in obtaining their diploma and their integration into the labor market.
The programs put in place under the initiative are designed to promote high school graduation and ease the transition to post-secondary education, apprenticeship, and the workforce. Through this initiative, the engagement of learners are put in the foreground so that they are masters of their success and the development of the skills necessary for employability and this in order to be able to thus actively participate in the Ontario economy and the development of the Francophone community.
What is Destination réussite's Mission?
Destination réussite Ontario’s initiative is to develop learning opportunities with educational, post-secondary and labor market partners that lead to student success based on their established study plan and interests, while taking into account the diverse characteristics of Francophone communities. This is a great initiative where all the partners work together to ensure that students have diversified and quality learning opportunities that acquire their well-being and success within a continuum of education in French.
Our Programs at Glendon:
Déterminer ton avenir !
is a forum providing students in grades 10-12 with future academic and career opportunities to prepare for life by offering multiple learning opportunities within their schools and university space. Topics include thinking about how to envision a career, reviewing essential skills for academic, personal and professional success (transferable skills), financial literacy, and the value of the French language in the workplace and in life in general.
Les Experts virtuels
The experts virtuels project at Glendon supports the existing network of distance learning courses taught by university experts to students in the high schools involved. The goal of this activity is to enrich teachers’ lesson plans through interactive virtual workshops delivered by an expert in a specific field. York University’s Glendon Campus offers a dozen virtual workshops in a variety of subject areas that meet the objectives articulated in the Ontario education curriculum.
Foire postsecondaire virtuelle
From November 23 to 27, 2020, the first provincial virtual post-secondary destination fair will take place. This major event is designed to provide a unique and interactive platform for French-language high school students to explore or confirm their choice of first destination after high school. It will also highlight post-secondary opportunities within the province’s French language learning continuum.
Save the World with Biology!
is a stimulating project that allows students in grades 10-12 to discover the importance of environmental science in preserving our planet by working with biologists on their school grounds and/or in a park (depending on the school’s location). This workshop will be delivered mostly outdoors while respecting the rules of social distancing. This workshop will allow the student to study a wide range of current scientific topics.
La Caravane des programmes
Glendon is invited to participate in the 2020-2021 edition of la Caravane des programmes workshops organized by Laurentian University under the Destination réussite initiative.

Through workshops in a variety of subject areas, students will be able to meet the requirements and criteria of their major while continuing their personal development as part of the « Tracer son itinéraire » initiative.
Glendon is invited by the University of Ottawa to participate in the exciting STEM Mobile project, a project for south-central and northern school boards to provide high school students with interactive workshops in science, engineering technology and mathematics (STEM). The activities that will be offered meet the requirements of the Ontario Education Curriculum and also the training identified by the technology team leaders.
Glendon has been a partner of Destination réussite since its creation in 2012. For the year 2019-2020 all our programs will be delivered remotely in a virtual manner.
