Ontario Thinks Business home

Why Ontario?


Technical & Vocational 

A variety of technical and vocational institutes, as well as colleges and universities in the Ontario region provide a broad scope of Certificate and Associate's degree programs in a wide range of fields. Focusing on a particular discipline, these educational programs are often very specific in particular course study.  Among the programs are courses ranging from accounting and animation technology to computer technical support and culinary/restaurant operations, and from financial occupations and manufacturing technology to sports medicine and systems engineering.

Primary & Secondary Schools

Ontario is home to four primary school districts and one secondary school district.

Promise Scholars

To ensure OMSD students have access to a world-class education that empowers students to be successful in a dynamic global society, Promise Scholars facilitates community partnerships to create college degree and career pathways for all students. The Promise Scholars program works to bring everyone together—parents, educators, businesses, and local leaders—to introduce students beginning in Kindergarten to the opportunities available after high school and make sure they plan and take the steps to achieve their goals.

Ontario's Community College Promise Program

The City of Ontario believes that all children of Ontario should have the opportunity to follow their dreams to attend a vocational or higher learning institution.  To help fulfill this dream, the City of Ontario has established a scholarship program for high school graduates which will provide free tuition for up to two consecutive years at a California community college of the student’s choice.
