2021
Secondary Programs


At this time it is uncertain what format and instructional delivery models will be in place for Summer Learning 2021 courses.  Programming decisions, including instructional formats (e.g., online only, in-person only, hybrid) and course offerings will be made in the spring, pending direction from the Ministry of Education and School District 43. 

The Summer Learning program in School District 43 provides engaging learning opportunities for students in Grades 1 through 12. All courses are taught by certified teachers and are tuition free for students meeting the usual BC residency requirements.


Secondary Skill Building

Secondary Skill Building courses are non-credit courses. Students may take these courses to review previously covered course content OR to preview a course that they will take in the future.  For example, a Grade 9 Math Skill Building class might include students who will be Grade 10 as of September 2021 and would benefit from extra time at the Grade 9 level. The class will also include students who will be in Grade 9 as of September 2021 and want to preview Grade 9 curriculum.

Secondary Skill Building courses are available to all students who will be in Grades 9 through 11 as of September 2021 (with the exception of Band, Tech Ed, and Culinary courses, which are open to students who will be in Grades 8 through 11 as of September 2021).   

Note: Classes do not cover the entire curriculum in the course area. They do not replace an entire grade. Students completing these courses do not receive a final letter grade, nor is this course recorded on their transcript.

All Advanced Credit Face-to-face courses are cancelled for Summer 2020.

Advanced Credit (High School Credit)

Advanced Credit (High School Credit) courses are full credit courses. Students who complete these courses will receive full credit and their final mark on their transcript.

Please be aware that Advanced Credit courses are rigorous and intense.  Completing a full credit course in six weeks requires a serious commitment from the student as classes are three and a half hours long, there is regular homework involved, and daily attendance is a must.  Please register only if you are making this commitment.

EAL Credit Courses:  Information and Referral Form will be available as of April 1st, 2021
