Grade 6, 7 & 8 Summer School Programs

Gary Allan High School provides several dynamic summer school learning opportunities for eligible Grade 6, 7 and 8 students throughout the month of July.

 

Math and Literacy Programs: 

These programs are designed for students that consistently attain a Level 3 or lower on their report card or are Newcomers to Canada.

Through authentic, experiential and inquiry-based learning, students may deepen their knowledge and understanding while consolidating concepts in their chosen areas of focus. Participation in these programs will reinforce key concepts that are the foundations to success in either grade 7, 8 or 9.

Students finishing Grade 6 have an opportunity to enroll in a Summer Math program, an exciting opportunity to explore and engage in mathematics this summer.  Students will expand their confidence while deepening their knowledge and understanding of mathematics. Participation in this program will help students consolidate key concepts in mathematics to further their success in grade seven. Note: This is not a reach-ahead course. Students will not be working on Grade 7 level math.

Students may enroll in either Session 1 or Session 2. Both sessions cover identical content.
