Summer School is for students in grades 8-9 on a review basis for students who would like additional time to improve proficiency level, or in grades 10-12 who were not successful in a core course and would prefer not to repeat the course the following school year.  Full-credit courses are also available for grade 10-12 students who have not yet taken a particular course and would like to do so in an intensive face-to-face program over a three-week timeframe in July.

  • Secondary Summer School will run daily on weekdays beginning Tuesday, July 2 to Monday, July 22, 2024 at Sa-Hali Secondary School, located at 255 Arrowstone Dr., Kamloops.
Three types of courses are offered:

  • Remedial courses (grades 10-12) - for students who achieved at least 40 per cent in a course and wish to improve their grade. Remedial courses provide 40 hours of instruction. Students who successfully complete a remedial course receive a "C.” Students who wish to achieva higher mark than a “C” should take a full-credit course. The school day hours for remedial courses are 8:45 AM – 11:30 AM.
  • Full-credit courses (grades 10-12) - for students who achieved less than 40 per cent in a course, or students who have not taken a course previously. Full-credit courses provide 80 hours of instruction. The school day hours for full-credit courses are 8:45 AM - 2:45 PM.
