Registering for Summer Learning is a choice and once registered, students will be expected to participate fully. Other accommodations will not be possible.

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 processed. Details are available in the Registration section of this website.

To be eligible for Summer Learning, students must either:

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

Within each priority category, placement in all full-credit courses is based on the students’ grade level, starting with students going into Grade 12.

For all courses, registrations are ordered by time/date stamp of registration form submission, earliest first, within each priority category (catchment and grade level).

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.


Daily attendance for Summer Learning is required. Students are expected to fully participate in all classes. 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.
