Summer School

Register Today for Summer School 2021!

The Ottawa Catholic School Board (OCSB) is now accepting registration for Summer School 2021. Our course offerings are open to all learners from all school boards. You don’t have to be an OCSB student to take advantage of these exciting summer learning opportunities.

Registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis until classes are full. The deadline to register is June 28, 2021. All classes are conditional upon sufficient enrolment and are subject to cancellation or transfer to an alternate location.

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:

  • You can register online (below) or through your Student Service Department.
  • If completing a hard copy, registration forms must be signed by the day school principal or designate (this is not applicable if you are registering online).

For more information on the Summer School programs listed below, view our Summer School flyer.

Reach Ahead Courses

Reach Ahead Courses will be offered online through a combination of both online synchronous (live teaching online) and asynchronous (independent learning) instruction. The courses are teacher-supported and enable students to obtain a full credit towards their high school diploma. It is expected that students be online for the synchronous portion of the course. Students will need access to a computer device and reliable internet throughout the day. Students who require a computer device will need to make arrangements with their home school. Students can only enrol in one Reach Ahead course.

Reach Ahead Courses will run from July 2 to July 23, 2021, 8:30 am to 4:10 pm.

Please be advised that if you signed up for a Day School Reach-Ahead course, it will now be taught online.

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 Grade 9 and 10. This program is available online and runs from July 2 to July 19, 2021, 8:30 am to 12:30 pm.

Skills Builder Program

The Skills Builder program is a literacy and numeracy support program for students who are presently achieving at level 2 or lower. In this program, students will receive encouragement, confidence building and daily supports to improve reading, writing, numeracy, study, and organizational skills. This program is organized for students currently in grade 6, 7 or 8 and will run online from July 2 to July 23, 2021, from 8:30 am to 12:00 pm.

Specialist High Skills Major, Cooperative Education

(For current grade 11 SHSM students)

Cooperative Education allows students to earn secondary school credits while completing work placements in the community. This particular program is being offered to Grade 11 students registered in a Specialist High Skills Major program, and provides timetable flexibility for those students unable to complete the two required cooperative education credits during the regular school day. Summer Cooperative Education Students can complete one or two credits linked to (in order of preference) a SHSM major credit course, a SHSM ‘other required’ course, or Creating Opportunities Through Co-op (DCO30).

Please note that space is limited and participation is not guaranteed. For more information, view the Specialist High Skills Major, Cooperative Education flyer.
