Learn, Explore and Stay Active During the Summer Months

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.

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.
