Summer School Information Available

Summer school registration begins for courses offered through the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board on April 4th. No appointments are necessary to sign up for summer school make up or reach ahead courses offered through the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board. Students will register for courses online. Any international students or students wishing to take a course offered through the Ottawa Catholic School Board are required to make an appointment with their Guidance Counsellor to register.

The Reach Ahead Program provides an opportunity for students to supplement and enrich their secondary education by acquiring a credit in July. Students who passed but want to upgrade their mark may choose to repeat a course in the Reach Ahead Program. Make Up courses enable students who have not been successful during the regular school year to obtain the credit by repeating the course. 

Students are also able to take some Reach Ahead courses online. In many ways learning online is like learning in a classroom. Students still read, work independently or as a member of a group, complete assignments and interact with their classmates and teacher, but instead of being in the same place at the same time you meet in cyberspace at a time of your choosing each day. Students are expected to log in daily and should plan to spend 6-8 hours per day on their online course. Students will need to be available for oral assessments and summative evaluations and should plan to be residing in the same time zone for the duration of their summer school course.

Cooperative Education is a program that allows students to earn secondary school credits while completing a work placement in the community. Summer Cooperative Education students can obtain co-op credits linked to, and related to, a course they have already completed. The Summer School Co-op Orientation meeting with the summer Cooperative Education teachers will be held on Wednesday, June 8th at 6:00 p.m. at Confederation Education Centre, 1645 Woodroffe Avenue at Hunt Club.

Students may register for Cooperative Education until Friday, May 27th, for Reach Ahead Courses until Friday, June 10th, and for Make-Up Courses until Wednesday, June 29th.

For more information please review the OCDSB Summer School Flyer. (04/04/2016)

Changes to Course Selections

If your child would like to make a change to their course selections, a change can be requested by filling out the online Changes to Course Selection Form. In order to request changes, a parent or guardian must give permission to the change by filling out the form. Once the change is processed an email will be sent to both the student and parent or guardian informing that the change has been processed. Please note that staffing decisions are made based on student course selections. As a result, it is important to carefully consider course choices and prerequisite courses for post-secondary pathways. (03/21/2016)
