Middle School (5–9)


Summer School @ CFL

Parkland School Division is now offering Summer School for current and incoming high school students at Connections For Learning.

Summer School is not only a convenient way to better a bad grade - it’s also a great opportunity to get a head start on the new school year, freeing up your future schedule for courses you didn’t think you’d have time to take, or other important pursuits.

Registration for Summer School opens Monday, April 8, 2019 - right after Spring Break. Please register early to reserve your spot. Summer School courses are offered based on student interest: popular courses are known to fill up quickly, while courses without enough registered students will be cancelled. Get your name on the list soon for the best chance of participating in your preferred course.

For full details, including a list of courses on offer, please see the CFL Summer School Brochure and Registration Form
