Summer School (Credit Courses)

Summer School registration opens March 9.

Summer School is an opportunity for students to free up room in their timetables for other courses or to upgrade marks. Our high school credit courses are open to high school and mature students from within and outside the school divison.

Students entering Grade 10 in September 2020 are eligible to enroll in Physical Education (PE 10), Career and Life Management (CALM) Extreme CALM/PE 10, Film Production 10 or Work Experience.

Continuing Education Summer School is intensive and very fast-paced with over a week’s worth of material covered in a class block. No material from the five-month curriculum is omitted. Continuing Education programming is an optional program of study and there are limited supports available. 

Credit Course Fees and Refunds

All activity fees and registration deposits are due at the time of registration. If you are not registering online, you can download the registration form and submit it by email or fax. You must follow up with a phone call to our office to complete payment. Next Step Continuing Education reserves the right to cancel any class due to low enrollment or unexpected circumstances.
