The LAS Summer Academic Program consists of two streams. The first, our “Accelerator” program, provides a clear focus on core school subjects. The second, our “Explorer” program, allows students to discover a range of fascinating topics that support the development of key skills in, particularly alternative subjects. Both programs bring the classroom out into the real world in order to take what the students have learned and apply them to practical situations. Students will select two courses from any of the subjects offered.

The LAS Summer Language Program is an intensive program consisting of two optional streams, English or French. The purpose is to increase students’ skills, abilities, and confidence in their selected language. Students are divided into groups based on an appropriate age range and ability. Learning takes place in and out of the classroom and each week will be themed in order to add focus and richness to the language acquisition process.

English Stream

The LAS Summer program is an English language environment. However, we recognize that some students are not quite ready for this English language immersion experience. For those students, we offer three levels of specific English language instruction, Elementary, Intermediate, and Advanced. When submitting an application students/parents select the level, they think best represents their student’s abilities. Upon arrival on campus students take a placement test to confirm they are enrolled at the correct level. Each level offers a variety of learning opportunities that include reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills.... [-]
