|COVID-19 UPDATE ~ MAY 21, 2020: In light of the recent Ministry of Education announcement that all schools will remain closed for the remainder of the school year, we are currently working to transition most of our current in-class offerings to an eLearning platform. Registration is currently open only to Peel District School Board day school students. Capacity permitting, registration for other boards / independent schools will open in early June. We are seeking some clarficiation on the recent Ministry announcement about summer learning. Please review this page regularly for further updates.|

Summer School 2020
Summer School is a great option for students who wish to complete an additional credit or who may need to upgrade a mark during the summer. Courses are offered for students currently in grades 9 to 12, as well as for adult learners working towards their high school diploma.
In addition to In-Class course offerings, there are also Peel eLearning courses and a Co-operative Education program. Additional Summer School offerings include extended opportunities for English Language Learners and Study/Travel opportunities with EduTravel.
Two-week sessions (i.e., 55 hours) are open to students who have completed the same course during the academic year but who have not earned the credit. It will be at the discretion of the day-school Principal or designate as to whether the student can complete course requirements in the 55-hour session, or if is in the student's best interest to complete the full 110 hours. N.B. Students who have earned the credit but who wish to upgrade their mark MUST complete the entire 110-hour Summer School course.
