New Summer School Registration Process

A form for summer school requests will be available in early April. You may sign up for summer school courses then. If you wish to reach ahead with a course from your course selections (eg., Civics and Careers), you will have the opportunity at that time to specify the replacement course for next year.

Review the Mandatory elearning information:

Students are required to earn two online learning credits to graduate from secondary school, beginning with every student who entered Grade 9 in the 2020-21 school year. Adult learners entering the Ontario secondary school system in 2023-24 or later will be required to meet this graduation requirement and may opt themselves out of the requirement. The graduation requirement is intended to support students in developing familiarity and comfort with working and learning in a fully online environment, as well as developing digital literacy and other important transferable skills that will help prepare them for success after graduation and in all aspects of their lives.

Parents/guardians may choose to opt their child out of the mandatory online courses required for graduation. Students age 18 years of age or older or students who are 16 or 17 years of age and have withdrawn from parental control can also opt out of the graduation requirement. School boards must also allow for students and parents/guardians to opt back into the online learning graduation requirement should their decision change.

Have a parent/guardian sign the Mandatory Elearning Opt-Out Form if desired and has yet to be completed.
