High School Here I Come! is a non-credit summer program for Grade 8 students who are starting at a TVDSB high school in September 2021. Students will be provided with a variety of learning skills and strategies designed to help them with their transition to secondary school.

Topics that will be discussed:

  • The reality of High School
  • Academic expectations and study skills
  • Getting and staying organized
  • Getting involved in the school community
  • Literacy and Numeracy learning skills

For Summer 2021 the High School Here I Come program will be delivered on site over two days.

Once registered, students will be scheduled to attend the program Monday, August 23 and Tuesday, 24, 2021 OR  Wednesday, August 25 and Thursday, 26, 2021. Parents will receive communication prior to the start of the program to let them know the dates their child is scheduled to attend.

In order to ensure the health and safety of our students and staff there will be safety protocols in place, including hand washing and sanitizing, physical distancing, dedicated washrooms for classes, and additional cleaning. Masks will not be provided. Students must bring their own mask or face covering with them and will be required to wear a mask when entering the school, and for the entire duration of their time in the building. In addition, class sizes will be limited to a maximum of 15 students. We await further direction from the Ministry of Education and local Health Units.
