​Get Ready! For Secondary School – Summer Transition Program

Get Ready! for Secondary School is a summer program designed to welcome our incoming students, and support them as they transition from Grade 8 to 9. This 20-25 hour program blends literacy and numeracy focused instruction with secondary school readiness activities that help to welcome and prepare students for their secondary school experience.  A joint project between the Program Department and Continuing Education, Get Ready! allows students entering Grade 9 to get to know their secondary school, in particular their teachers (i.e. caring adult) and peers, before attending classes in September.


  • Direct support for secondary level literacy, numeracy and learning strategies. 
  • Students get a head start on their secondary school experience, pathway planning, and make a connection to at-least one caring adult in their new school. 
  • Student participants report feeling more comfortable and more confident about beginning secondary school, and achieve a higher credit accumulate rate in Grade 9
