Summer ESL Program
We invite students who wish to develop their English and Mathematics skills to participate in our immersion language program, and learn about and travel in beautiful Nova Scotia!
Students in our program learn English with certified teachers and prepare for college entrance tests such as the SAT, ACT and TOEFL. Courses emphasize reading comprehension, grammar and composition skills, as well as all areas of mathematics including pre-calculus. A profile is created for each student to determine their strengths and areas of remediation. Students work one-on-one with teachers to improve and enhance their skills. Visits to universities in the area, and help with preparing university applications are also arranged.
Students enjoy regular weekly outings, including hiking, swimming, visiting museums and art exhibits, or attending concerts and other areas of cultural interest.
Our program was developed and based on the GoldlakeSM Educational Model. The GoldlakeSM Program is a unique educational model based on a contemplative approach that includes thematic team teaching and arts integration. In addition to creating a nurturing environment, teachers learn to create individual profiles based on learning styles. This enables the teachers to create an individualized program for each student based on their specific needs, abilities and interests.
