The three-year bilingual Global High School Program will combine local high school curriculum and Rosedale’s Ontario Secondary School Diploma, which will result in students receiving two certificates on completion of the program.
The partners say that by being granted both local high school diplomas and the Ontario Secondary School Diploma, students will be able to apply to higher education institutions either within Canada, or further afield.
“We believe the mosaic of Canada, and our connected world, is strengthened by transformative education, diversity and global citizenship,” Michelle Cui, CEO of Rosedale International Education said.
“Our Global High School Program is co-created in partnership with each school, with immediate benefits to both learners and educators — we’re proud to deliver a modern high school solution to Maple Bear Global Schools and reshape the future of global education, together.”
Maple Bear’s network totals 380 schools, with another 200 schools set to open soon, in 30 countries.
The partnership extends across 10 Maple Bear locations in Brazil by February 2022, with additional locations to follow.

“Maple Bear Global Schools is pleased to announce that we will be partnering with Rosedale International Education to offer our high school students a greater variety of high school programming that will enable them to acquire the courses they need for post-secondary opportunities abroad or at local universities,” Arno Krug, CEO of Maple Bear Global Schools, added.
In four years, the Rosedale Academy Global High School Program has reached a partnership base of 62 global partners with 95 schools in 17 countries. In 2021, it brought approximately $128 million into Canada through student pathways.
Speaking at its inaugural Global Education Summit in 2021, director of Teaching and Learning at Rosedale International Education Pam Turnbull said the provider had sought to be innovative when designing its curriculum.
“Usually what often happens is that K-12 schools will partner with a university for a pathway type of program, but we wanted to move beyond those pathways to look at what else we can do,” she said.
