Summer SKILL BUILDER Programs – Non-Credit

Textsize
A+ A-

We appreciate your interest in our Summer Non-Credit Programs.  These programs are closed to enrollment. 

For Summer 2020, we have developed a new set of Summer Literacy and Math SKILL BUILDER Programs to provide an opportunity for your child to continue to develop important Literacy and Math Skills. In response to the Ministerial Closure of Schools from March until June, these programs will help ensure that our students are prepared with the necessary skills to be successful next year!

These engaging real-time learning programs focus on foundational literacy and numeracy skills, Learning at Home strategies, the HUB and MS Teams. Students will be encouraged to expand their learning beyond the virtual class time by exploring your home, yard and neighbourhood to complete activities.

Eligibility: Students enrolled in an Ontario publicly funded school in Grades 6 to 12 during the 2019-2020 school year are eligible to attend for FREE.

Please see our “Register with CE” page for student registration requirements if your student does not currently attend an HWDSB school.
