We’re just working to update dates, times and course offerings for Summer 2023. Check back here for more soon! 

We are pleased to offer flexible learning options catered to each student’s needs.  So if you’re looking to upgrade a class that was challenging, or you’re eager to get ahead or add an extra course in, we have options for you!

All classes run Monday to Friday and return to full face-to-face learning, following all guidance and recommendations that are in place at the time.

Spaces are limited and will be assigned on a first-come-first-served basis and confirmations will be sent to each student or family upon registration. A waitlist will be created once classes are full.

Classes are free for most students (see note at the bottom of this page about fees for International Students).

*Daily attendance is mandatory (students who miss two classes will be automatically withdrawn from the class).

New in 2022: in addition to all our regular full-credit courses, we’re excited to be adding some shorter non-credit courses that may spark interest or support some earlier exposure to upcoming curriculum for students in middle and secondary schools. Whether that’s the Foundations of Literacy and Numeracy for students who are struggling with some of the basics, or any of the new courses designed to provide earlier exposure to upcoming courses and interests, find out more here: https://newwestschools.ca/programs-services/summer-learning/summer-learning-non-credit-short-courses/
