Online Summer School

We live in a busy, competitive world where students need every advantage to achieve their goals and be successful. Online summer school allows students to supplement their learning during the summer months and get ahead without compromising their summer vacation. 

In this article, we look at why students go to summer school and the benefits of taking online summer school courses with Blyth Academy Online.


Why Do Students Go to Summer School?

Attending summer school has several benefits for students in Ontario. The reasons students choose to take online summer courses vary based on their individual goals. Explore a few of the top reasons why students go to summer school.


Retake a Failed Course

Retaking a failed course is one of the most common reasons for enrolling in summer school. Students who decide to retake a course they have previously failed can enroll in the same class at summer school and successfully earn the course credit.

Summer school provides students with flexibility and additional support. The instructional time allows them to focus and address problem areas, increasing their opportunities to pass their classes.

If students pass their classes during summer school, their grades will replace any failing grades from the previous school year. Colleges and universities will recognize the summer course credit earned.


Improve a Current Grade

High school students who are not satisfied with their current grades can retake a course in summer school to improve their grades.

Students who want to enroll in college or university programs may need a required grade or overall grade point average. Summer school provides the ideal opportunity for students to improve their grades and meet program admission requirements.

Blyth Academy’s online summer school offers accelerated repeat high school courses for students who want to improve their grades. Repeat courses allow students to focus on their problem areas and require fewer assessments. Diligent students can complete accelerated repeat courses in approximately four weeks.


Acquire Needed or Missing Credits

Obtaining needed or missing credits is another popular reason why students enroll in summer school. Online high school summer courses are flexible and can help students catch up if they are behind. Students can take summer classes to fulfill missing credit requirements or earn credits for subjects not available elsewhere.

Online summer school courses can help students obtain the credits they need for an Ontario high school diploma.


Get Ahead

Some students go to summer school to get a head start on the next school year. Taking selected summer school courses can help students free up time, avoid school and work timetable conflicts, and have time to pursue extracurricular activities.

Getting summer school course credits also allows students to take a reduced course load the following year. They can focus on getting better grades for these courses. 

Not only can summer school help students get a head start on the school year, but it can also enable them to use summer school courses to finish high school earlier. Online summer school courses are flexible and easy to fit in with a busy schedule. Summer school allows students to make the most of their time and acquire the necessary high school credits to graduate early.

Though our physical doors remain temporarily closed, the minds of our students stay open. Summer classes are continuing to meet on their regular daily schedules, in virtual classrooms with face-to-face instruction and peer interaction.  The Blyth Academy model of small class sizes, flexible scheduling and individualized approach have enabled us to remain faithful to our standards. Our commitment to ongoing and meaningful communication between school, teachers, students and families has been critical to this effort.

Although our students have transitioned into summer mode and COVID-19 restrictions have begun to loosen, we are looking ahead to what September will hold for our campuses and families.
We want to be clear - our preference and our priority is to get students back to our campuses, but we must ensure this is done in a safe and effective way. While we await official guidance from Public Health and the Ministry of Education, a "return to school" task force has been hard at work putting concrete operational plans in place for all likely scenarios. This includes a full return to campus with safeguards, a blended model of virtual and in-campus learning and the continuation of fully virtual classrooms. All scenarios will provide robust learning and live, daily instruction and interaction with teachers and peers. 
With ten campuses across Ontario, we realize that each one of our schools is a unique space and community. We will be implementing across-the-board policies on hand washing, facility cleaning and social distancing measures. Each school is also prepared to pivot individually based on the guidance of local health authorities and to best serve students and families. 
Our recent survey showed that over 80 per cent of Blyth Academy families are eager to return to campuses, and we are hard at work to prepare for this day. As September's scenario becomes clearer and more information becomes available, we will continue to communicate.
