The YCDSB recognizes that our students have a diverse set of needs, skills, goals and preferred learning styles. Regardless of their differences, we are at our best when we help all students discover and develop their God-given gifts and their sense of vocation and purpose. Guided by the principles of excellence, access and equity, we look for innovative ways to ensure a successful outcome for every student.

Students can enroll in an e-course as one of their four day-school courses in either Semester I or Semester II.

This program is only available to YCDSB students
