Summer Programs

At J. Addison, we believe education is an ongoing year-round activity, which brings fulfillment in one’s development. We keep the joy of learning and exploration very much alive during the Summer months (July and August), and we offer several summer programs that are tailored for different age groups and academic needs.

Summer Academic Enrichment Day (Ages 4 - 12)

Has learning from home grown tired for your children?  Are you looking for them to join fun-filled programs as an escape this summer season, but still ensure that they are not falling behind?

New this year, we are excited to launch our Summer Academic Enrichment Camp which aims to provide young learners the opportunity to be re-invigorated and learn beyond the school pace.  For campers age 4 to 12, our program delivers engaging and challenging daily math, language and problem-solving courses that motivate them to explore and apply new knowledge.  Courses are grade-appropriate, themed per week, and feature games and interactive formats to encourage children to be exciting about learning.  These include Math Drills & Application Trivia, Creative Writing, Public Speaking and Debate Team.  Our afternoon line-up consists of more hands-on activities in Science Explorers and Arts Workshop, so campers are always creatively inspired.

Take advantage of our Early Bird Special details for 2021 Summer Academic Enrichment Camp. Full payment must be received by the school on or before March 31, 2021!

Friday In-House Event Day 
Each Friday of our program features a culminating project that is presented and performed by campers.  Throughout the week, campers are challenged with a task to solve a problem and/or compete in a friendly match that is both team- and self-esteem building.

A few Friday events are as follows:

"Mathletes" is an event where campers of all grades and levels compete in a series of challenging math-based problems in attempt to win the Gold Medal.  Throughout the week, campers and staff work collaboratively to train and host the Friday event.

"Who's Right?" is a debate-based event where campers are challenged to think critically and develop sound reasoning to argue given topics.  Through written compositions and practicing public speaking, campers have the opportunity to express their ideas in a friendly competition in mock trial-style.  Collectively, campers vote for the winning debater.

"Eco-Builders" is a stem-based activity where campers are challenged creatively to plan and develop products that can be the most environmental and sustainable.  Projects can include cardboard chair competition, water bottle design, the flattest flat pack and more!  To culminate, campers will put their presentation skills to the test in an entrepreneurial sales pitch to our panel of "Sharks and Dragons".

JOIN US AT HOME!
For campers hoping to participate in our enrichment programs from the comforts of their homes, we are delighted to introduce our integrated online programs that aim to provide the same effective learning environment for our young learners.  Campers joining us from home have the ability to interact with everyone on campus too!

Secondary School Credit Courses

We run 2 sessions of Secondary School Credit Courses during the summer. The first session usually begins at the start of July and the second one around the start of August. Full day instructions from 9:30AM to 3:45PM with a lunch break in between.

 

F.A.Q. About Summer School:

1. How many credits can I take in summer school?
Either one full, two halves or reinforcement credits. The credit programme includes reinforcement credits for grades 9 to 12 and new credits for grades 9 to 12: reinforcement credit courses (55 hours) are open to students who have completed the same course during the regular school year, but have not obtained a passing grade on their final report card or wish to improve their mark.
Note that you must have achieved a minimum of mark of 35% in the courses during the regular school year. Otherwise, students in grades 10 to 12 must take the course again as a new credit, and grade 9 students will repeat the course as a full credit (110 hours).
New credit courses or accelerated courses (110 hours) are for students who have not previously studied the course or who do not have a final mark in the course above 35%. Since the course involves five (5) hours of study each day, you can take only one new credit course.

2. What are the prerequisites for summer school courses?
Prerequisites are the same as regular day school programmes. The specific eligibility requirements are listed under each programme description in Ministry of Education’s common course calendar. School guidance counsellors can help students determine if they are eligible for a course.

3. How do I withdraw from a summer school course?
Students wishing to withdraw from a course must contact the summer school office at the summer school location where they are registered. Students will not be reimbursed course fees once the summer school course begins.

4. Is there homework?
Yes. Summer school courses cover entire year’s work in a compressed period of time. Students must be prepared to allocate sufficient time to work at home every day. It is not advisable to pursue daily employment.

5. When are final report cards issued?
They will be issued on last day of the course after the examination review.

6. Is there a cost for textbooks?
Textbooks are provided for use during summer school at no cost. Students are responsible only for the replacement cost of lost, misplaced or damaged textbooks.
