By studying music and taking examinations at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto, high school students in Ontario can earn Grade 11 and Grade 12 music credits. The RCM represents the pinnacle of classical music training and education in Toronto and certain accretions are equivalent to post-secondary level music classes. Here at Lippert, our teachers are equipped with the expertise necessary to not only prepare your for an examination, but to help you succeed. So graduate early OR distinguish yourself and graduate high school with extra credits!

Below, you’ll find the RCM’s listed requirements for these credits as per their website. Or check out this appendix from the Government of Ontario.
