The Grade 6, 7 & 8 Language Arts and Math program is a dynamic, interactive program designed to boost students skills in Language Arts and Math based on current teaching approaches. Students can stay connected to learning and be ready for the next level of Language Arts and Math. Teachers will present materials and activities that will engage students in a positive environment. The emphasis is on productive group work and targeted skill development. Students will improve their understanding and confidence in preparation for success at the next grade level.

This program builds on student’s prior knowledge and teachers will present materials and activities that will engage students in a positive environment. The emphasis is on productive group work and targeted skill development. Students will improve their understanding and confidence in preparation for success in grade 9 academic math.

Credit Programs for Students Currently in Grade 8:

Students currently enrolled in Grade 8 may opt to take a reach ahead credit. These students must be able to work well independently, have excellent learning skills and are able to keep up with a fast-paced condensed learning experience. Reach ahead credit courses and locations are listed on the attached flyer. Please note that transportation is NOT provided for students enrolling in secondary school credit classes.


For students in Grade 8, one online grade 9, CGC1D (Geography in Canada), course has been added to the High School Credit course options.
