The Sacred Heart School of Montreal announces a new online summer school for all Quebec students in grades 9 and 10. Although the downtown private school is usually for girls only, the summer school courses are available to students of all genders. The courses offered are all Secondary IV classes: Cultural Social and Technical Math, Science Option Math, Environmental Science, and History of Quebec & Canada. Says the school’s Director of Academics and Assistant Head, Anika Maloni, “We hope that these experiences will help mitigate some of the difficulties students may have experienced during the COVID-19 learning disruptions.”
The summer school program from Sacred Heart, renowned for its personalized academic approach, is designed for students who have failures in the classes taught; who wish to review the Sec. IV course material; who need to take prerequisite courses to bridge to higher level courses; and, in the case of grade 9 students, for those who wish to preview the upcoming year’s course material and prepare for next year.
All summer school classes will be taking place online, on Google Meet and Zoom. The math classes will be asynchronous, meaning that students will be able to watch prerecorded lessons and advance at their own pace. The science and history classes will be synchronous, and will be in the mornings, from Monday to Friday for a period of two weeks. Registration for the courses will open June 22, and will cost between $300 and $499 per class, depending on the class and whether the student is enrolled at Sacred Heart or at another school.
