Learning Strategies Centre


The Learning Strategies Centre provides the opportunity to develop a variety of basic skills/strategies, particularly in reading, writing and mathematics.  Study skills and organizational skills are developed through instruction in each student’s academic content areas as an integral part of the program.  Students will be encouraged to identify their own learning needs to strengthen and develop independence as successful learners.  Learning Strategies is a credit course for students in Grade 10, Grade 11, and Grade 12.  Referrals to Learning Strategies are made through the Counsellor.  Students must be recommended by school staff to be able to participate in this course.
