Gap Closing/Upgrading Program - Remote Learning

Registration for Semester 1 (July 7 to July 17) is closed. Registration for Semester 2 (July 20 to July 30) is open.

Courses in this program are designed for students (with home school approval) who, during the 2019-2020 academic year, have been successful in one or two subjects, and wish to upgrade their mark or revisit course concepts.  The student MUST take the same course grade and stream that was previously taken.   For students in grades 9 to 12, the upgraded mark along witht the previously earned mark will be entered on the student’s Ontario Student Transcrip (OST)  (for summer 2020 only).   These courses do not grant additional credits.  Additional student support may be available through on-line academic tutors for select courses.
