Literacy and Numeracy Summer Programs

For current Halton District School Board students (public only) entering Grade 8 and 9 in September who do not consistently attain a level 3 on their report card and would benefit from focused instruction in either Literacy or Numeracy. Participation in this program will reinforce and review key concepts that are the foundations to success in Grade 8 and 9.

Students may enroll in both summer sessions.  It is strongly recommended that students do not miss more than 1 class in the 2 week session. We suggest that you speak with your child’s teacher to discuss if this program would be beneficial.

This program aims to improve student achievement by building and consolidating student knowledge and understanding of  key concepts in numeracy or literacy.
