The Virtual Reach Ahead Credit Program provides an opportunity for students to supplement and enrich their High School Education by acquiring one credit. Students who have already successfully completed a course but want to upgrade their mark are eligible to repeat a course in the Virtual Credit Program. Students may only enroll in one Summer School course of any kind (i.e., one Virtual Reach Ahead course or one eLearning course). 

Students will participate in both synchronous and asynchronous learning throughout the school day.  Students will need access to a device and reliable internet throughout the day. Students who require a device will need to make arrangements with their home school.

IMPORTANT:  Students are required to attend the full summer school session (110 hours) to meet curriculum expectations outlined by the Ministry of Education. Attendance is mandatory in synchronous and asynchronous learning in order to successfully complete the program and earn the credit. Vacations and holidays should not be taken for the duration of the course.

Courses offered:
