Summer School

Summer School is a great option for students who wish to complete an additional credit, upgrade a mark by repeating a course, or take part in Summer School Cooperative Education for experiential learning. Courses are offered for students starting grade 9 in September, as well as current grade 9 to 12 students.

 

Summer School is offered through our continuing education program and is an elective educational opportunity. Given the amount of learning hours that are required in such a short duration, Summer School may not be a good option for all learners. Please read all the learning commitments listed below.
