Summer Learning options 2023

We are in the midst of updating our dates and course offerings for summer of 2023. Check back soon for more info on what’s coming this summer!

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

Throughout the summer months, we have a number of options for learners of all ages.  So whether you’re looking for a bit more support for your child who has struggled through this past year, a chance for a student to get a head start on upcoming curriculum, 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

Our Summer School programming will be held at New Westminster Secondary School with options for tweens, teens and adults. Elementary options will be held at a nearby elementary school (again, details coming soon).

This year we’re excited to be offering a range of regular full-credit courses for students who need or want those classes, and shorter non-credit courses that may spark interest or support early exposure to upcoming curriculum for students.

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?

Full credit courses will be offered weekdays, from July 4th to August 4th, 2023.
Non-credit enrichment or preview courses for Middle and Secondary students will be offered weekdays, from July 4th to July 21st.

For a full list of the upcoming course offerings to support middle and secondary students, check back here for more.

Registration for the 2023 year will open to students enrolled in New Westminster Schools early in April, and can be coordinated by your school counsellor. Out-of-district students can start to register later in the month, using the form that will be available on this website.

Elementary Students

We’re so excited to be offering a second year of sessions for elementary school students, as we expand our capacity to support students who might need a little extra practice, or to engage those who have keen interest in a particular area of study.

Non-credit enrichment or early exposure classes will run in the mornings, over the first two weeks of July, with more details coming soon on hours and course offerings.

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.

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.
