How to register for Summer School 2019
The Ottawa Catholic School Board (OCSB) is now accepting registration for Summer School 2019. Our offerings are open to all learners from all school boards. You don’t have to be an OCSB student to take advantage of these great summer learning opportunities.
Registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis until classes are full. The deadline to register is Friday, June 28, 2019. All classes are conditional upon sufficient enrolment and are subject to cancellation or transfer to an alternate location. You will be contacted by OCSB staff if a course is cancelled. Subsidized OC Transpo passes are not available for high school credit students.
Students currently attending a high school must have their summer school registration approved by their home school. You can register by one of the following methods:
- if you are currently attending an OCSB high school, you can register through your Student Services or Guidance Department
- fax, email, or mail your approved registration form to the contact information on this page
- visit us at St. Nicholas Adult High School, 893 Admiral Avenue, Ottawa
- registration forms must be signed by the day school principal
Adult learners must provide proof of prerequisite through a transcript or report card. Please contact us if you are an adult learner who does not have a transcript or has attended a non-Ontario high school.
Our summer school schedule will not be modified to accommodate personal summer plans. Final exams are compulsory and must be written on Tuesday, July 23, 2019. Students will have their final opportunity to discuss marks and final exams/summative tasks with their teachers on Wednesday, July 24, 2019.
Reach Ahead Courses
Reach Ahead Courses enable students to obtain a full credit towards their high school diploma. Online Reach Ahead Courses are teacher-supported. For E-Learning courses, students will be required to meet once with their teacher for a summative task and the final exam. Students can only enrol in one Reach Ahead course. Reach Ahead Courses will run from July 3 to 24.
