Summer Learning Opportunities

Earn a credit - Acceleration Courses (4 weeks)

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.
 

Online Learning (formerly known as e-Learning)​ 

Courses that are specifically designed to be taught in a fully online format. Online learning does not require pupils and teachers to be face-to-face with each other. Classes occur online using an asynchronous model, with check-in opportunities with the teacher. The learning platform is Brightspace by D2L.

Dates:   July 2 to July 28
Hours:  Flexible (6 hours per day minimum)
 

Remote Learning (replacing Face-to-Face instruction this summer)​

Remote learning is taking place due to the extended interruption to in-person learning as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Remote learning occurs when classes are taught at a distance and when students and educators are not in a conventional classroom setting.  Classes will occur online using a synchronous model. 

Dates:   July 7 to July 30
Hours:   8:45 am to 3:33 pm

 

Reinforcement Courses (9 days per session) 

For students who have not successfully earned the credit and have achieved a mark between 35% and 49% and are recommended by their Principal for a reinforcement course. Reinforcement classes are offered using a Remote Learning model. 

Dates: Session 1 - July 7 to 19 and/or Session 2 - July 20 to 30
Hours: 8:45 am to 3:33 pm
