PLEASE NOTE

We have been required to consolidate our Summer School programming at one site this year due to administrative issues. As a result, all full credit courses will take place at Catholic Central High School, located at 441 Tecumseh Rd. E., Windsor, ON.

No courses will be run at St. Joseph Catholic High School. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause those students that were originally scheduled to report to St. Joseph.

In addition, we have been required to increase the number of instructional minutes in the school day to accommodate Ministry of Education guidelines. As a result, the day will be extended by 30 minutes to 2:30 PM, (with two 15-minute breaks).



SECONDARY SUMMER SCHOOL PROGRAM

This year the registration deadline for the Secondary Summer School Program is June 3, 2016. There is no registration fee. Late applications will be placed on a waiting list. Course offerings are dependent on sufficient enrollment, and may need to be revised accordingly.



CREDIT RECOVERY

Credit recovery offers students an opportunity to revisit those areas of a particular course in which they were not successful. Students must have achieved a minimum of 35% in the selected course in the current school year to be eligible for this program. Students who ultimately passed their selected course are not eligible for this program. This program runs from Wednesday, July 6 to Tuesday, July 19, from 8:30 AM to 2:30 PM (55 hours). Course offerings are dependent on sufficient enrollment, therefore an alternate choice is recommended.

All credit recovery courses will be offered at Catholic Central High School, located at 441 Tecumseh Rd. E., Windsor, ON. All classes run from 8:30 AM to 2:30 PM.

Consult your school's guidance counsellor to inquire about the WECDSB Summer School program. For more information regarding Credit Recovery, including the specific courses being offered, download the Student Application form.



FULL CREDITS

Full credit offerings allow students to (1) register in classes they may not be able to schedule during the regular school year, or (2) otherwise improve upon grades they have already earned. This program runs from Monday, July 4 to Friday, July 29, from 8:30 AM to 2:30 PM (110 hours). Course offerings are dependent on sufficient enrollment, therefore an alternate choice is recommended.

Full credits are also available to those students that were not successful in a particular course, although they will be required to participate in the full, 110-hour course.

All full credit courses will be offered at Catholic Central High School, located at 441 Tecumseh Rd. E., Windsor, ON. No courses will be run from St. Joseph Catholic High School this year, as originally planned, due to a consolidation of the program.

Enrollment will be limited!
