InformNet: Online Summer School

Information for online summer school is now available.  Both repeater (the student has failed the course) and non-repeater (the student is taking the course for the first time) options are being offered.  If a student takes a non-repeater course, please be aware that he must take a full course load at St. Paul's each year (ie.students don't get a spare for taking a summer course) and that online school will not cover the content with the same rigour as a St. Paul's course so the student may have difficultly if he plans to move forward in that subject area.  For example, if your son takes PreCal 30S in hopes of taking St. Paul's PreCal 40S, he may struggle.  

Information about courses and registration can be found at: 

In-person summer school options will be offered at various locations around Winnipeg.  Information on locations and offerings will not be available until mid-June.
