2023 Summer Learning Opportunities

The following opportunities are available:


Acceleration Courses (18 days)

For students who wish to earn a credit in a subject they have not previously studied or those who wish to upgrade a mark in a course that they have successfully completed. 

Students are encouraged to register early to avoid disappointment. Course offerings are not guaranteed as they are based on sufficient enrollment and teacher availability. 

Students can only take one acceleration course during the summer session. Transportation is not provided for this program.
