summer school

General Information

Upper Grand DSB offers Grade 7 & 8 students requiring additional help with the Ontario Curriculum, particularly in the areas of Literacy and Numeracy, an opportunity to participate in a 8-day summer remediation program. The program is intended for students whose achievement of expectations in Grade 7 or 8 English/Language and/or Mathematics indicates that they are likely to experience difficulty next year.



The program is designed to remediate essential skills in reading, writing and oral language, including spelling and grammar with a particular emphasis on the writing process. The 3 major strands in Language will be reviewed.


The numeracy program is designed to ensure that students build a solid foundation in Mathematics. The program will review the five strands in mathematics: Number Sense and Numeration, Patterning and Algebra, Measurement, Data Management and Geometry. Students will understand a range of mathematical concepts, memorize necessary mathematical facts, learn and practice standard mathematical procedures and apply mathematics in real world situations.


Students who are achieving a Level 2 or below in English/Language and/or Mathematics, and recommended by their Principal, are eligible to participate in the program.
