Summer School opportunities

Multiple summer opportunities are available via the TDSB. Please note the following restrictions:

  • for most Secondary credits, students CANNOT reach ahead and take courses for their upcoming grade.
  • Students CANNOT take an e-Summer School course while enrolled in a face-to-face summer course (due to time demands)
  • List of all TDSB summer programs: www.tdsb.on.ca/…/SummerPrograms.aspx

 

Elementary (6-8) Summer School – www.tdsb.on.ca/…/ElementarySummerSchool.aspx

Elementary summer programs are tailored to increase engagement and build self-confidence in our students. These locally driven programs support students to build literacy and numeracy skills through a creative curriculum that can include elements of technology, physical fitness, art, music and drama. The following schools offer summer programs close to St. Andrew’s:

Cummer Valley MS STEM, Literacy & Math, ESL
Willowdale MS STEM, Literacy, Math, ESL, French, Character Education
Woodbine JHS Literacy, Numeracy through Family Studies, Science and Design and Technology, Physical Education

If you are interested in enrolling in one of these programs (or the others listed on the TDSB site), please contact Guidance for a registration form. Registration needs to be completed before the end of April.
