Counting on You
Counting on You is offered after the school day for students in grades 7 to 10 who require additional support with reading, writing and math. The program is designed to boost:
- literacy and math and skills
- learning skills, such as regular homework completion
- self-esteem, motivation and student confidence
Students benefit from small class sizes and more personalized instruction. The program features dynamic lessons based on the regular curriculum and help with homework and assignments.
