Reach Ahead Courses
Earn a full credit towards your high school diploma this summer. We offer a variety of teacher-supported Grade 9-12 Reach Ahead courses via Blended or E-Learning courses.
The course will be taught through synchronous (in-person teaching) and mandatory virtual synchronous instruction.
The course is taught in an asynchronous format (flexible, independent online learning) instruction.
We also offer the “Conversational English & Literacy Skills Development course” for students entering Grades 9-12. Students will have many fun interactive opportunities to engage in everyday social English activities, play games, engage with different forms of media and practice English. Please note that this is a non-credit course.
Credit Recovery Achievement Centre
The Credit Recovery Achievement Centre program enables students to recover one full course credit, and it is recommended that students have obtained a minimum standing of 30% in the original course. Students must be recommended by their home school Credit Recovery Team to participate in Summer Credit Recovery. Courses may be recovered in Grades 9 and 10. This program will offer flexibility to participate in-person or online upon consultation with the Credit Recovery teacher.
Skills Builder Programs (English Numeracy & Literacy Support or Core French Literacy Support)
The Skills Builder programs are support programs for students presently achieving at level 2 or lower. In the English Numeracy & Literacy Skills Builder program, students will receive encouragement, confidence building and daily supports to improve reading, writing, numeracy, study, and organizational skills. In the Core French Literacy Support program, students will receive intensive French language skill development focusing on reading, writing and speaking. These programs are organized for students currently in Grades 6, 7 or 8.
Specialist High Skills Major, Cooperative Education
Cooperative Education allows students to earn secondary school credits while completing work placements in the community. This program is offered to Grade 11 students registered in a Specialist High Skills Major program. It provides timetable flexibility for those students unable to complete the two required Cooperative Education credits during the regular school year.
