Passport to Grade 9 Summer Program 2022

The Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District School Board, through its St. Charles Adult and Continuing Education Program, has developed an orientation program to welcome and support students entering Grade 9 in September.

The program, called "Passport to Grade 9," has been designed to give students a snapshot of the Grade 9 secondary experience and provide them with the knowledge and skills to attain success in both their learning and growth in all aspects of life and faith.

The program is taught by fully qualified teachers and focuses on preparing our new Grade 9 students for the major differences between their elementary experience and their upcoming secondary school journey.

Passport to Grade 9 is a two-day program which includes the following:
• the distinctiveness of Catholic schools and the integration of the Ontario Catholic Graduate Expectations
• the development of learning skills and work habits
• educational pathways and career planning
• health and wellness
• the values of teamwork and collaboration
• orientation to secondary school
