Ontario Minister of Education Stephen Lecce has announced that all publicly-funded schools will remain closed for the remainder of the school year, as part of an effort to keep students, staff and families safe from COVID-19. As a result, all HDSB schools will remain closed until this time. The decision to extend the closure is based on the advice of the Chief Medical Officer of Health. Given the recent communication by Minister Lecce, ALL SUMMER SCHOOL CREDIT COURSES WILL NOW BE DELIVERED ON-LINE

Registration is now closed. 

Because of the complexities of operating Summer School during the Covid-19 Pandemic, applications received after 4:00 pm on June 30th cannot be processed.


About Summer School

Please note:  Due to Covid 19, our staff are working remotely. Direct all questions to summerschool@hdsb.ca     


The Secondary Summer School Credit Program provides students the opportunity to complete additional high school credits during month of July.  Courses are offered for students currently in grades 9 to 12 or for Adult Learners who are working towards their High School Diploma. Note: We do not offer General Interest courses.

All courses will be online. Students will be required to complete daily assignments and tasks. Teachers will also provide opportunities for synchronous learning for their students through scheduled, live, online interactions with students, individually, or in groups.

New: Upgrading

We will be offering classes for current HDSB students who wish to upgrade their understanding and/or passing mark for a course that they have successfully completed this school year.  Upgrade classes will run in either Session 1 (July 6 -17) or Session 2 (July 20-31) for 55 hours and are being offered in English, Math and Science.  Students may select 2 Upgrade courses if offered in different sessions, or 1 Upgrade and 1 Full Credit course. Course options are posted in HDSB’s MyBlueprint as well as here.

Students currently in Elementary School can find course information here.  This includes Grade 8 registrants for Reach-Ahead credit courses (NAC1O1 and GLD2O1.)
