TRIS Summer School
As you begin making your family plans for the summer, we would like you to consider the benefits of our TRIS Summer Enrichment and Remediation Programs.
The environment of summer school is more relaxed and features smaller classes—an optimal learning environment from which all students benefit. The TRIS Summer Program is also a great opportunity for your child to spend time with friends in a productive learning environment. Students who attend school during the summer find it easier to transition back into the learning environment for the start of the next school year. Remediation during summer school also affords students an opportunity to improve grades for credit which were earned during the regular year, or simply to gain further experience in courses with which they have not yet found success.
Additionally, a wide range of daily enrichment opportunities are offered to all students. Activities such as cooking, arts and crafts, field trips, sports and many others will give your children creative, stimulating, and fun-filled experiences over the summer.
Summer School is open to ALL students, K1 to Grade 11.
The summer enrichment and remedial programs are 6 weeks long.
Summer camps are one week, two weeks, and three weeks long depending on the activity.
Some students are required to attend Summer School, including the following: ESL students new to TRIS ; and High School students who are required to make up remedial classes during the summer, as a result of failing grades.
In order for us to offer the best summer experience for your children, we need to organize classes, teachers, and schedules as far in advance as possible. You can help us with this by registering your child(ren) early.

Academic Enrichment Programs
K2 to Grade 1
Our enrichment program for our young students has a different theme each week. Integrated into the weekly themes, students will develop their literacy and numeracy skills and enjoy a variety of activities such as arts and crafts, music and movement, computer lessons, cooking and outdoor fun. Every Friday, we will celebrate our learning for the week through different fun activities such as games, parties, water play, and visits to local indoor playgrounds such as Funarium and Play Time.
Our elementary enrichment program allows students to improve their English Language literacy skills. Reading, writing, listening and speaking will be mixed with fun activities that will foster your child’s confidence and efficiency in literacy. During the last two hours of every day, each student will be able to choose from a variety of fun activities to participate in such as animation, cooking, arts and crafts, and sports.
This program is designed to help students work on improving their reading, writing, speaking and listening, and math skills, as well as to develop their vocabulary and grammar. Students will review and practice the skills they will need for their next grade level. During the last two hours of every day, each student will be able to choose from a variety of engaging activities to participate in such as animation, cooking, arts and crafts, and sports.
English as a Second Language Program
Grade Level: Grades 2-12
We offer continual support for our ESL students in smaller classes. Students in the summer ESL program receive intensive language instruction to improve their academic vocabulary, reading comprehension, grammar, writing, and speaking and listening skills.
High School Remedial Program
Grades 10 and 11
This program is designed to meet the needs of our students who need more time to meet learning goals-whether it is because of class time lost due to changing schools, issues related to learning English as a second language, or individual learning styles.
High school students who received a semester grade of F during the school year need to attend summer school for re-teaching with the aim of receiving high school credit for graduation. Students who received report card grades below C- in a core subject can raise their grade and GPA by attending summer school.
University Test Preparation Program
Grade Level: Grades 9-12
High school students may enrol in one, two or all three of the following test prep courses: 1) SAT Critical Reading and Writing, 2) SAT Math, and 3) TOEFL. Students learn specific strategies through multiple practice exercises, practice tests, timed tests, and computerized tests. All three of our university test prep courses are taught in small classes to ensure students receive the individual attention needed to refine their skills, improve their test taking confidence, and help them achieve an optimal score on their university entrance exams.
Note: a minimum of 7 students is required for our university test prep courses to be offered; otherwise these course will not be open.
