Summer School

Summer SchoolWELCOME TO CAVE SUMMER SCHOOL!

 July 5th to July 23th, 2021

Aspen View Public Schools offers Summer School for current and incoming high school students through the CAVE (Centre for Alternative & Virtual Education). Students over the age of 18 are also welcome to register.

Summer School is a convenient way to get a head start on the new school year, freeing up your future schedule for courses you didn't think you'd have time to take.

  • Registration for Summer School 2021 opens April 15, 2021

Summer School will be offered VIRTUALLY, using online resources and technological supports.  Courses will be delivered by teachers who will provide:

  • Digital courses that are self-paced using Google Classroom or Moodle delivery systems. Students will work independently through online modules, receiving virtual tutorial assistance as needed.
  • Downloadable assignments that can be submitted via computer, scan, email, or photo
  • Weekly tutorial support utilizing Google Meet or ZOOM
  • Regular phone, text, and email communication
  • Online or downloadable exams

Is Summer School right for me?

Successfully completing an online course presents many challenges for students. It is important to consider the following questions when deciding if virtual learning is for you.

Am I a motivated, independent and self-directed learner?
While virtual tutorial assistance will be available for Summer School students, much of the learning must be done independently.

Do I have the pre-requisite skills and knowledge?
Because of the unique challenges and demands of virtual learning, it is recommended that students have an average of 70% in any prerequisite courses before attempting an online course at the next level.

Do I have the necessary time?
In a traditional classroom setting students put in 125 hours of learning in class for a 5-credit course. As Summer School programs have a shortened delivery timeline, students must be prepared to put in many hours of study EVERY DAY if they are to be successful. It is essential that prospective students do NOT book holidays or work full-time in July while they are completing virtual courses.

Do I have the necessary resources?
Summer School students will need reliable internet access and a computer or Chromebook to complete online courses. Chromebooks will be available for loan.

Fees

There is a one-time refundable course fee of $50.00 per course. The fee will be refunded upon successful completion of the course. If course fees are an obstacle, please discuss with your school principal.
