The TCPS High School is excited to offer two summer courses to current grade 10 and grade 11 students. The courses Grade 11 Physics SPH 3U and Grade 12 Chemistry SCH 4U will be offered from Monday, June 22 to Friday, July 24, 2020.
Students entering grade 11 or 12 this fall may choose to take a summer Science course at Town Centre. These courses will be included on student transcripts and grades will be submitted to Ontario universities. These courses are strongly recommended for both IB Diploma and Ontario curriculum students who are considering taking multiple science courses in grades 11 and 12.
These courses are offered at NO ADDITIONAL COST for students registering in the Town Centre IB Diploma Programme. The cost to students in the Ontario curriculum program is $800 per course.
There are many advantages to earning an additional credit over the summer at TCPS. 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 on Education’s requirement of 110 hours of class instruction, these courses meet daily from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Students will be given a lunch break as well as 2 shorter breaks during the day. Students should bring their lunches or money to purchase lunch. Each student will receive a mid-term report after 2 1/2 weeks as well as a full report upon the conclusion of the course. These reports will be mailed to the student’s home. The final exam will be held on Thursday, July 23rd at 9:00 a.m. Students may review their exams on Friday, July 24th from 9:00 to 10:00 a.m.
Students who did not attend Town Centre during the school year will also need to complete the full enrolment forms in addition to the Credit Course Registration Forms.
Summer Credit Course students who did not attend the school during the regular school year are asked to contact the High School Principal, Mr. Patrick McCarthy at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 905-470-1200.
