Teacher – delivered

Term lengths and class times are compressed into a very short time frame (morning or afternoon, Mon – Fri) and attendance is expected during your classes designated time. Each term is approximately 7 1/2 weeks.  This amount of time for day classes is usually just the right speed for many students and is within the timeframe allotted for day classes to complete the 90-110 hours to earn a secondary school credit.  Daily attendance / login to D2L is expected during your scheduled class time, in order to meet all the requirements of earning your Secondary School Credit.

If this pace is too slow / fast for you or you require flexible attendance, notify your instructor first and then contact a Guidance Counsellor to discuss alternatives by either completing a Guidance Intake Form . A guidance counsellor will contact you via email during our office hours. 

Student Services Fee

There is no registration fee for taking regular day secondary school courses.

Fees for Correspondence courses = $60 each

If you are currently a full-time student enrolled at another high school, and wish to take an additional course through St. Louis, there will be a $360 course fee requested for any credit class.

International Students

International students must pay additional fees. Please contact Waterloo Catholic District School Board office 519-578-3660 for details.
