It’s time to register for Summer School 2022 at the Ottawa Catholic School Board. Students from all Boards are welcome to take our Reach Ahead Courses.

Reach Ahead Courses

Earn a full credit towards your high school diploma this summer. We offer a variety of teacher-supported Grade 9 to 12 Reach Ahead courses via Blended or E-learning courses.

Blended Course: The course will be taught through a combination of both synchronous (in-person teaching) and online asynchronous (independent learning) instruction.

E-Learning Course: The course is taught in an asynchronous format (flexible independent online learning) instruction.

Reach Ahead Courses will run from July 4 to July 25, 2022, 8:30 am to 4:00 pm.

Credit Recovery Achievement Centre

The Credit Recovery Achievement Centre program enables students to recover one full course credit and it is recommended that students have obtained a minimum standing of 30% in the original course. Students must be recommended by their home school to participate in the Summer School Credit Recovery program. Students can recover one full (Grade 9 or 10) course credit.

This program runs from July 5 to July 20, 2022, 8:30 am to 12:30 pm.

Skills Builder Programs

(English Numeracy & Literacy Support or Core French Literacy Support)

The Skills Builder programs are literacy and numeracy support programs for students achieving level 2 or lower in grades 6, 7 or 8. In the English Numeracy & Literacy Skills Builder program, students will receive encouragement, confidence building and daily supports to improve reading, writing, numeracy, study, and organizational skills. In the Core French Literacy Support program students will receive intensive French language skill development with a focus on reading, writing and speaking.

This program will run in person from July 4 to July 25, 2022, from 8:30 am to 12:00 pm.

Specialist High Skills Major, Cooperative Education

Cooperative Education allows students to earn secondary school credits while completing work placements in the community. This particular program is being offered to Grade 11 students registered in a Specialist High Skills Major program, and provides timetable flexibility for those students unable to complete the two required cooperative education credits during the regular school year. Students can complete one or two credits linked to (in order of preference) a SHSM major credit course, a SHSM ‘other required’ course, or Creating Opportunities Through Co-op (DCO30). For more information, please contact your Guidance Counselor.

New this summer! Indigenous Student Summer Program (ISSP)

In this exciting new program, Indigenous students will have the opportunity to earn a Reach-Ahead credit, or recover some credits (depending on the information on their status sheets). Students will meet curriculum expectations in a variety of ways, including land-based learning, cultural teachings, experiential learning, field trips, arts and crafts, through elder teachings and so much more! This program is like a day camp for Indigenous students where you can earn credits! The ISSP program will run from July 4 to July 25, 2022, 8:30 am – 4:00 pm, and will be in-person at St. Pius X High School.
