Studies have shown that over Summer, students lose a significant portion of the knowledge and skills they learn during the school year. By the end of summer, students perform, on average, one month behind where they left off in the spring. What's happening? What would happen to the champion hockey player, the star violinist or the ace athlete if they stopped practicing for two months? Would their skills not suffer a setback?
THINNOX offers a wide range of courses in multiple formats during the summer months of July and August. While non-credit TED Innovation Camps ranging 1-2 weeks are available at the Glen Erin Campus, intensive, month long credit courses are offered at the Lakeshore Campus. Credit courses are offered in student centered modules in regular and accelerated formats.
In a Harvard sponsored meta-analysis of 93 summer school programs it was found that Summer Schools lead to increases in participants, knowledge and skills. What was most interesting about the study was this: the impact of the Summer School was greater when programs provided small-group or individual instruction. That is what THINNOX summer school does.
THINNOX campuses are carefully designed to ensure a friendly and student centred atmosphere geared to a small set of students. Class sizes range from 6 to 10 students. Small class sizes allow our instructors and counsellors to personally mentor every student and tailor the programming to their specific requirements and interests.
The combination of personalized programming along with involved mentorship and keen career focus help our students achieve much more than what they think is possible.
