This summer, Town Centre Private High School will be offering Grade 11 Physics (SPH 3U) to students who wish to earn an additional Ontario Ministry credit over the summer. The course will run from Monday, June 26 to Friday, July 28, 2017.
There are many advantages to earning an additional credit over the summer at TCPHS. Our IB Diploma students who are interested in pursuing university programs in the Sciences will be able to reduce their study load by taking Physics in the summer while concentrating on Chemistry and/or Biology as part of their IB programme during the regular school year. Similarly, Ontario curriculum students will be able to either fast track in the Sciences, giving them more flexibility in grade 12. By taking an additional credit now, students may choose to take an additional study period, or they may choose to take a wider range of courses in grade 12. This enables them to meet the prerequisites for a greater number of university programs. Further, since universities generally average students’ top 6 grade 12 courses, taking an additional credit now enables students to use only their best grades in this calculation, increasing their overall averages and increasing their chances for university acceptance, particularly to more competitive programs.
Because these courses must meet the Ministry’s requirement of 110 hours of class instruction, these are “all day” courses, meeting from 8:45 am to 3:00 pm. Students will be given a 45-minute lunch break as well as two shorter breaks every day. Each student will receive a mid-term report after two weeks as well as a full report upon the conclusion of the course following the final exam.
Summer Credit Course students who did not attend the school during the regular school year as asked to contact the High School Principal, Mr. Patrick McCarthy at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 905-470-1200.
