SJ Pre 9th - Math & English (Full Program)

SJ SUMMER PROGRAM CATEGORY:  In House - SJ Only

COURSE NAME: SJ Pre 9th - Math & English (Full Program)

PURCHASING CODE: In House/SJ Only: SJ Pre 9th - Math & English (Full Program)

AGE GROUP:  Saint John’s students entering 9th grade

The Pre 9th Summer Studies Program, for eighth graders entering the ninth grade at Saint John's in the Fall, is designed to solidify the educational background in English and Mathematics and to acquaint students with the demands of a college preparatory high school curriculum. 

It is recommended and encouraged to all incoming members of the SJ Class of 2025.

In addition to acclimating students to the demands of a college preparatory high school curriculum, students will engage in  cross-curricular lessons and skills which prepare a student to excel in a wide range of academic subjects.  Students will focus on 'Reading and Writing' college preparatory skills, including developing/discerning of point of view, organizing paragraphs, finding and sorting facts, structuring sentences with proper grammar, and building vocabulary.  

The Math portion of the SJ Pre-9th program will have a two-fold purpose.  First, teachers will develop, solidify, and advance the students' conceptual understanding and skills of the important Pre-Algebra topics that are essential for success in high school mathematics.  Next, teachers will introduce and develop the students' conceptual understanding and skills of the major Algebra topics that students will learn in 9th grade.  This will give students a "leg up" for their Freshman math class and put them in a much better position for success.  When necessary, teachers will remediate any lessons for students that need it in order for them to achieve mastery.  Likewise, for those students ready for more advanced material, teachers will move them at a challenging pace that allows them to interact with more advanced Algebraic concepts and skills. 

The teachers' ability to scaffold their lessons will be enhanced by their access to SJ upperclassmen who will be serving as classroom teacher aides.  These SJ peer tutors will not only help students academically, but they will also develop social relationships with them as they become members of the St. John's Brotherhood.
