Reach is one of the few summer schools able to offer the Ontario credit courses thanks to our long-term partnership with fully accredited Canadian teachers. We offer classes in Grade 12 English for those students continuing with their grades. Students join a Canadian Credit class and complete their grade during our 4 week program.

Students will analyse a range of challenging literary texts from various periods, countries, and cultures; interpret and evaluate informational and graphic texts; and create oral, written, and media texts in a variety of forms. An important focus will be on using academic language coherently and confidently, selecting the reading strategies best suited to particular texts and particular purposes for reading, and developing greater control in writing. Students will be required to do research assignments on a variety of topics and will be encouraged to use the web as a source of information. Please note, the ENG4U course is a four week course taking place during our first two programs (Program 1 & 2).
