ADD AN ‘A+’ TO YOUR REPORT CARD NEXT SUMMER!

Math courses have 4 hours of ‘gym time‘.  While inside a gymnasium, we complete experiments and collect data for a project while playing sports.  Yes, there is lots of math involved! July 2017, we completed a trigonometry assignment on a rock climbing wall.

Economics & science courses have visits to a research hospital and/or a cancer centre embedded in their curriculum, while media & English courses have field trips to the AGO & other art centres in the city.

At Uchenna Academy summer school,. students can expect challenging curriculum, project-based learning and a low student:teacher ratio.
