Travel for Credit

As part of our summer school programming for the 2023-2024 school year and in partnership with EF Educational Tours, four Travel for Credit course options are available to secondary school students across the board. When enrolling in a Travel for Credit course, students in the Durham Catholic District School Board will have the unique opportunity to earn academic credits through a combination of traditional and experiential learning. Students will complete a part of their summer school learning in-person and continue their instruction while traveling under the supervision of the summer school teacher hired by the board.
