We have been required to consolidate our Summer School programming at one site this year due to administrative issues. As a result, all full credit courses will take place at Catholic Central High School, located at 441 Tecumseh Rd. E., Windsor, ON.
SECONDARY SUMMER SCHOOL PROGRAM
This year the registration deadline for the Secondary Summer School Program is June 3, 2016. There is no registration fee. Late applications will be placed on a waiting list. Course offerings are dependent on sufficient enrollment, and may need to be revised accordingly.
Credit recovery offers students an opportunity to revisit those areas of a particular course in which they were not successful. Students must have achieved a minimum of 35% in the selected course in the current school year to be eligible for this program. Students who ultimately passed their selected course are not eligible for this program. This program runs from Wednesday, July 6 to Tuesday, July 19, from 8:30 AM to 2:30 PM (55 hours). Course offerings are dependent on sufficient enrollment, therefore an alternate choice is recommended.
Full credit offerings allow students to (1) register in classes they may not be able to schedule during the regular school year, or (2) otherwise improve upon grades they have already earned. This program runs from Monday, July 4 to Friday, July 29, from 8:30 AM to 2:30 PM (110 hours). Course offerings are dependent on sufficient enrollment, therefore an alternate choice is recommended.
Students have two options to earn credits through cooperative education: one credit (from July 4 to July 29) and two credits (July 4 to August 29). Preference will be given to those students applying to the program for the following reasons: (1) students in Grade 11 in credit deficit (2) students in Grade 12 in credit deficit or requiring credits to graduate (3) students registered in the Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM) program or (4) students registered in the Summer Company youth entrepreneurship program. Enrollment will be limited!
Students can earn full credits through e-learning (from July 4 to August 2). Course availability is dependent on sufficient enrollment. Additional courses are available through other school boards.
WECDSB STUDENTS are required to fill out two forms. All students will fill out the Student Application form, which summarizes the summer school program and serves as their personal record. Students must also complete one of the following forms, to be submitted to their guidance counsellor:
