Summer School

Once again this summer, the York Region District School Board is offering a summer school program for current year Grade 7 and Grade 8 students. Under the YRDSB Summer Learning Strategy, this program is designed to provide students with a dynamic and engaging learning experience. Through an Arts integrated, inquiry based model, students will be given an opportunity to develop their literacy and math skills. Students must be committed to achieving their best, modeling good behavior and attending for the entire length of the program.


​Please speak to your child’s teacher to assist you with the selection of one of the following three programs:



Gr. 7 Course Code

Gr. 8 Course Code

Grade 7 & 8 reinforcement program



Grade 7 & 8 program for students with an Individual Education Plan (IEP)



Grade 7 & 8 program for English Language Learners





The Program runs from Wednesday, July 2 to Friday, July 25, 9:00 a.m. to 3:10 p.m. (lunch break from 11:45 a.m. to 12:25 p.m.).


The following schools will host the program:


·       Bur Oak Secondary School (933 Bur Oak Ave., Markham)

·       Emily Carr Secondary School (4901 Rutherford Rd., Woodbridge)

·       Markville Secondary School (1000 Carlton Rd., Markham)

·       Newmarket High School (505 Pickering Cres, Newmarket)

·       Richmond Hill High School (201 Yorkland St., Richmond Hill)







Your child will attend the school that is closest to your residential area (please see “Summer Programs” at for more information regarding school locations). Bussing will be provided from a selected area school. A bus schedule will be distributed to each student in early June.
