Summer Learning options 2021

We are excited to offer a variety of summer learning opportunities.

Throughout the summer months, we have a number of options for learners of many ages.  So whether you’re looking for a bit more support for your child who has struggled through this past year or for a way you can continue to add to your own learning, take a look at the offerings below.

Summer Learning through summer school programs
(for students enrolled in middle and secondary school)

Our Summer School programming will be held at New Westminster Secondary School and includes options for tweens, teens and adults.  Classes will include a mix of face-to-face time and remote learning components.  Rest assured that safety protocols, social distancing practices and frequent cleaning and disinfection will be in place to keep everybody safe and healthy.

Middle & Secondary Students

Want to strengthen your child’s grade 7-9 literacy or numeracy basics, and give them a stronger start heading into next year? Looking spark your teen’s imagination with some creative writing support? Or maybe want to see what kind of crazy science experiments can be cooked up both at home and in the lab?

Rec and Read

Rec and Read is a referral only program that supports our youngest students. The two-week long camps target kids leaving kindergarten to those leaving grade two, and they make improving reading fun by wrapping it into into things like themed activities days and cooking lessons. The program is offered to families at a small fee, though subsidies are available for families who need support.

Online Learning

When flexibility is key, online learning can be a great solution for students in grades 10-12 or for adult learners. Available 24/7 throughout the school year, the media-rich, teacher-supported class options provide teens and adults the opportunity to learn at their own pace.

*It is important to note that if the course is a pre-requisite for your September timetable you will need to complete the course no later than July 30th, 2021.

Adult Education through the summer

We should all aspire to be lifelong learners. So if you’re an adult who needs to complete or upgrade your high school education, a new Canadian who wants to work on your English language skills or maybe somebody just looking to expand your knowledge, we’d love to learn with you.
