The Sudbury Catholic District School Board is proud to announce that we will be providing several new summer learning opportunities this year. We are now accepting registration for our Summer e-Learning Courses for secondary students. There will be several other learning opportunities offered this summer through the school board; this is just the first group of learning opportunities available.
Summer e-Learning Courses for Secondary Students
Summer e-Learning courses are full-credit courses available to students who are currently registered in grades 9-12. These courses are taught by qualified Ontario Teachers across the province. These courses are fully online and typically consist of a blend of online lessons and independent work. Students who are successful in a summer e-Learning course typically commit to working 4-6 hours a day from Monday-Friday for the 4 weeks that the summer course is offered. Secondary Summer e-Learning courses cover the same range of content that is typically covered during a full semester course in a condensed timeline.
Courses are offered in English, Math, Religion, Science, Social Studies, and the Humanities for students currently in grades 9-12.
The Sudbury Catholic District School board will be offering Grade 11 Religion (HRT3M), Grade 12 Religion (HRE4M), and Careers/Civics (CHV2O/GLC2O). Co-op may also be available in some circumstances.
Students must have the prerequisites to register for a course over the summer. For more information about specific courses, please contact the guidance contact at your school:
Marymount Academy has topped the list in the Greater Sudbury area for the annual Fraser Institute report. The school garnered a grade of 8.4 out of 10. This also puts the school in the top 40 secondary schools in Ontario out of more than 700 schools across the province. St. Benedict C.S.S and Bishop Alexander Carter also received positive scores of 7.8 and 6.6 respectively.
Marymount Academy is the only all-girls academy in Northern Ontario and focuses on providing innovative and engaging learning opportunities for its students. This year, the Grade 12 leadership class had the opportunity to lead faith retreats for Grade 7 and 8 students. Students also fared well in the annual Board wide science fair and the school continued to offer students specialized learning through the SHSM programs of Arts and Culture, architecture and engineering and Non-profit.
The staff and students at Marymount Academy also focus on community projects throughout the year, gathering together to celebrate Thanksgiving as a school. They also contributed to the Warm Soup for Warm Hearts initiative where students helped form a human chain to pass over 200 containers of soup to the Samartian Centre to help feed those in need.
“When you enter the walls of Marymount, you are not just entering a building. You are entering into the Regal family,” said Lori Holden, Principal of Marymount Academy. “Teachers and students work together to create an environment that follows our school motto- Learn that you may Live. I believe this environment allows our students to excel into well rounded young adults.”

Students at Sudbury Catholic Schools participated in a
challenge that was posted by Goshenite Seniors Services to create 500 Mother’s
Day cards for seniors in the Sudbury area.
Not being in a physical classroom didn’t stop Mrs. Cimino
and her Grade 1 students at St. David School from coming together to help Goshenite
“It is especially important during these difficult times to
provide students with authentic opportunities for them to act as caring and
responsible citizens,” said Mrs. Cimino.
Milena Raso, a grade 11 student at Marymount Academy is
currently enrolled in the Specialized High Skills Major for Non-Profit
Industry. She too jumped at the opportunity to bring positivity to members of
“I am very blessed to have my grandmother living with me and
listening to her stories about not having technology and other modern-day
conveniences. It shows me how life has changed. Hearing it first-hand, rather
than from reading it in a textbook makes it much more real to me. I think it’s
important for youth to be more active in caring for our elders and realize that
we have a lot to learn from them,” she explained.
Cards will be sent directly to Goshenite Seniors Services who will distribute
them over the weekend.
