Small groups of students work with the instructor on course-specific material in 2 hour sessions daily for two weeks in August. Registration runs from June 1st until July 24th. For these courses to run, a minimum number of students will be required.

Students in grade 10 must write the OSSLT to receive a high school diploma. Our simulation programme will focus on the four key writing areas and the three main reading areas.

Students develop organizational and time management skills as well as a variety of other important study skills. The intermediate version helps students make the transition to grade nine. The senior version provides students with more complex skills that will ensure success at the college and/or university level.
