Registration is underway for summer school courses provided through Grand Erie District School Board this July for students in Grades 6-12 looking to earn a full credit, change to a different pathway, repeat an unsuccessful course or improve marks.
“Summer school offers a different kind of learning environment with smaller class sizes, and a condensed schedule to accelerate student achievement,” said Denise Martins, Superintendent of Education at Grand Erie. “There’s a wide range of course offerings, so it’s a great option for students looking to gain a new start or for those wanting to get ahead.”
In-class summer school locations are hosted at Brantford Collegiate Institute and Vocational School and Hagersville Secondary School. Bus transportation is available for interested students. Other learning opportunities during the summer include: co-op programs, dual credit courses, and e-learning.
Summer school students receive the same credits they would during the regular school year. Full credit courses run for four weeks. Two-week literacy and numeracy courses for students in Grades 6 and 7 are also available, with registration completed through the student’s home school.
Summer school officially begins Tuesday, July 3 and ends Friday, July 27.
