Sum­mer school re­sumes

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - THE ISLAND -

Many Is­land stu­dents are back in school to im­prove their grades or English lan­guage skills.

More than 170 high school stu­dents from across the Is­land have reg­is­tered for morn­ing sum­mer school at Colonel Gray Se­nior High School. The sum­mer learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment, which started July 4 and con­tin­ues to Aug. 14, of­fers stu­dents smaller class sizes and only one course to fo­cus on.

“This is value-added pro­gram­ming that gives stu­dents ex­tra op­por­tu­nity to grad­u­ate sooner or get cour­ses they need to get into post-sec­ondary pro­grams,” said Ed­u­ca­tion Min­is­ter Doug Cur­rie.

“Sum­mer school is also an ex­cel­lent op­por­tu­nity for new im­mi­grant stu­dents to im­prove their English lan­guage skills and keep up in the class­room later.”

Sum­mer cour­ses of­fered this year in­clude:
