The OCDSB’s Continuing Education Department is offering a Credit Recovery opportunity for students recommended by their day school. Credit recovery is available to students who had a final grade of less than 50% during the 2023/2024 and the 2022/2023 school years.

  • Course Options: Priority will be given to compulsory credits at grade 9 - 12 levels (including ESL/ELD).
  • Students may be registered in up to 2 Credit Recovery courses.
  • Students will engage synchronous/asynchronous learning via Google Meets and Google Classroom with some in person options.
  • Students who withdraw from a course are not eligible to recover it through the credit recovery process.
  • Students who did not cover enough course content due to an extended absence, may not be eligible to recover it through summer credit recovery program.

Students are expected to be in Canada during the duration of the session.

Eligible Students:

  • OCDSB students who have failed or received an “I” in a course during the 2023/2024 or 2022/2023 school years.
  • Must be currently registered in an OCDSB secondary school.


  • Students must register for Credit Recovery courses through their Guidance Counsellor.  
  • Following the registration by Guidance Counsellors, the school will be contacted by Continuing Education staff to facilitate the transfer of the Evidence Record (required in order for the registration process to be finalized). Note: In the event that Continuing Education feels that a credit cannot be attained during the Summer School Credit Recovery Program, we will reach back to the home school administration to determine next steps


Student fees are required for:

  • International students (must be residing in Ontario in order to participate in this program)
  • Students residing outside of Ontario at the time of registration. The fee for a Summer School credit is $500.00 + 3% administration fee payable online by Visa or Mastercard. Payment information will be provided upon receipt of the registration.

Requirements for Success: 

  • Students will need to login/attend and participate in learning with their teacher daily, until the credit(s) are recovered (if applicable) or the program ends.

In order to participate in this program, students will need to have access to technology and the internet.  Students who require technology and access to the internet should communicate their needs to their Home School prior to the end of the school year.
