Summer Learning 2022

All Summer Learning instruction will be in-person and Health and Safety protocols will be in place to ensure student and staff safety.

Registering for Summer Learning is a choice and once registered, students will be expected to participate fully in the structure in place at the time. Other accommodations will not be possible.

If guidelines from the Ministry of Education / Public Health Office change, Summer Learning delivery will adapt to these guidelines. *Program details such as dates, times, and courses are subject to change as conditions warrant.

What is Summer Learning?

West Vancouver Schools Summer Learning provides rich learning opportunities for students during the summer. Summer Learning programs range from elementary to secondary and include a variety of course options.  All Summer Learning courses strive to:

  • Support student engagement in a different learning environment
  • Provide students with additional learning opportunities in specific curriculum areas
  • Support personal success in specific curriculum areas
  • Provide opportunities for focused curriculum


The BC Ministry of Education provides funding for eligible residents of British Columbia only. Out-of-district and independent school students must attach good-quality electronic copies of all required documentation in order for the registration form to be submitted properly. Details are available in the Registration section of this website.

International fee-paying students must pay a fee for all courses. The list of fees is available in the Fees and Policies section of this website.
School aged non-graduates born after July 1, 2003 may register for Summer Learning.

Summer Learning Student Placement Priority

Priority for student placement in a Summer Learning course is as follows:

  1. Students who currently attend a West Vancouver Schools public school
  2. Students who reside in the District of West Vancouver (including Bowen Island and Lions Bay)
  3. Students who reside outside the District of West Vancouver and do not currently attend a West Vancouver Schools public school

Priority for placement in all full-credit courses is based on the students’ grade level, starting with students going into Grade 12.

Grade 8 students are not permitted to request or register for full-credit courses during Summer Learning and Grade 9 students will only be permitted to request full-credit courses at the Grade 10 level.

Summer Learning administration reserves the right to adjust priority based on an individual student’s educational needs.

Students not currently attending public school in West Vancouver will be required to submit documentation in order to complete the registration process.

Please note: This placement priority applies to online registration only, not in-person registration.


Daily attendance for Summer Learning is required. Students are expected to fully participate in the structure in place at the time. Other accommodations will not be possible.

Absences beyond two days or behaviour deemed to be inappropriate may result in the student being removed from the course. Two days of late attendance are equivalent to one absence. No refund for fee-paying students will be granted if the student is removed for not attending school.

Extended absences for any reason are not accommodated. These include, but are not limited to, work, vacations, sporting events, games or practices, family commitments, or music festivals. Students should not register for a summer learning course if they are unable to commit to full-time attendance.
