PURCHASING CODE: In House/SJ Only: SJ Pre 9th - English

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

COURSE DESCRIPTION
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 highly 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 point of view, organizing paragraphs, finding and sorting facts, structuring sentences with proper grammar, and building vocabulary.  

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.  

The four week version of the Pre 9th courses allow teachers to go into greater depth with the different topics covered and at a pace that helps each student to achieve mastery.  Likewise, this added time also allows for the possibility of a greater breadth of topics to be covered, developed, and mastered.
