Are you part of the crew?

Sitting in class isn’t for everyone. If you’re an unconventional thinker looking for an unconventional school experience, Oasis Skateboard Factory might be for you.

Our students have a variety of goals: credit accumulation; becoming ready to take the next step into the world of work and active citizenship; earning a high school diploma; or transitioning to post-secondary education. We welcome eligible students from across Toronto throughout the academic year.



You don’t need to be a skater to be an OSF student – just someone who’s passionate, curious, and interested in subcultures.


We welcome students aged 16-21.


Students must live in Toronto.


Students should already have their grade 9 and 10 compulsories. We offer mainly grade 11-12 courses with a few catch up grade 10’s.

Step 4


This makes sure that we are getting students who are the best fit for this unique program, and for you to make sure that it is a structure that works for you. We choose you, you choose us.
