HeadStart is an in-person preparatory program which provides students with those preliminary tools to be academically successful at the beginning of the school year.  The program is infused with literacy and numeracy activities and the all-important social adjustment factor.

What students will learn:

  • What is the 2022 -2023 school year likely going to look like for high school students?
  • What does a blend of in-class, online and remote learning look like in a high school setting
  • How to manage a semester system for both in-person and remote learning
  • Follow your timetable, find your classes and meet your new peers who will join you – ahead of time
  • Navigate around other parts of the school and how to access people resources
  • Feel a part of a new school community before the first day of school
