Summer School 2017 will run from Wednesday, July 5 to Tuesday, August 1, 2017 - all classes will be 4 weeks (20 days) in length.

Co-op

Summer Co-op programs integrate classroom theory, some online work and practical experience in the workplace. All students can benefit from a co-op experience regardless of the post-secondary destination of choice. Students earn two high school credits by participating in this program.  This program is intended for Upper Grand or Wellington Catholic students, at least 14 years of age, who have completed the grade 10 Careers course or a course linked to desired area of work.  Please find more information on our Summer School Co-op Student Info Sheet 2017.  To register, students need to do the following (also, see our Summer School Co-op Registration Help Sheet for some tips):
