Secondary Skill Building

 

Secondary Skill Building courses are non-credit face-to-face 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 2024 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 2023 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 2024 (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 2024).   

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.

Advanced Credit (High School Credit)

Advanced Credit (High School Credit) courses are full credit face-to-face 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. 

Most full-credit Math and Science courses will charge a $35 materials or workbook fee upon registration.  For further info check our Fees page and Refunds page
