Summer Programming

Elementary Summer Programming

Each year, in July, the Renfrew County District School Board (RCDSB) operates its Summer Learning Program for Senior Kindergarten and Grade 1 and 2 students. We may also offer a program for Grade 6, 7 and 8 students. The learning environment is structured in a camp-like atmosphere that ensures that each child has fun while learning. The four-week instructional sessions provide children with the opportunity to strengthen their literacy and numeracy skills. There is no fee for students to attend.  

Availability of elementary summer programming is dependent on funding from the Ministry of Education, and RCDSB Summer Learning Programs are finalized in the spring. Please contact your school for more information.

**Please note:  Summer Programming normally takes place in-person however due to COVID-19 protocols classes may take place in a virtual environment.**

Secondary Summer Programming

Summer eLearning 

The RCDSB offers Summer eLearning opportunities for students in Grades 9 to 12. Full credit courses are offered to students currently working towards their high school diploma. Summer eLearning is a great option for students who want to complete additional high school credits, or upgrade previously completed courses during the summer months. The summer semester begins early July and ends early August. Students must be committed to attending regularly and participating in all classroom learning activities.

Programs are funded by the Ministry of Education as part of the Learning Opportunities Grant. There is no cost to students.

RCDSB students - Please contact your home school Guidance Counselor to register for a summer elearning course. 

Summer Co-operative Education

Students can earn credits towards their high school diploma through summer Co-op opportunities. With Co-operative Education courses, students have the opportunity to:

  • experience hands-on learning;

  • try out different career options;

  • apply their classroom learning;

  • earn credits through workplace experience;

  • develop workplace skills and habits; and

  • gain valuable work experience that will help build a résumé for post-secondary programs and future employment.

For more information on Summer Co-operative Education, students should contact their school's Guidance or Co-op Department.
