LEARNING RESOURCE PROGRAM

The learning resource program is provided to meet the individual learning needs of high school students and to facilitate their academic potential. The learning resource teacher will instruct in small group tutorials focusing on subject areas; monitoring completion of assignments; learning strategies, and skills in organization, studying and test taking. The applicants need to be referred by the guidance counselor or classroom teachers and approved by the learning resource teacher and/or principal.

NIGHT SCHOOL

On occasion students may desire a course not offered by Regina Christian School or available within the student’s timetable. RCS students can register to take a night class dependant upon availability. A complete listing of current courses, fees and an application package can be picked up in the office.

COURSE OFFERINGS

Courses proposed in this course selection guide are taught only if there is sufficient registration. Regina Christian School schedules classes and assigns staff based on the subject selections submitted by students. Because staff and classes are balanced for the year, students wishing to repeat a class from first semester will not necessarily be able to do so. Requests for timetable changes must include a signed slip from the student’s parent/guardian and be recommended by a Regina Christian School counselor. Timetables may or may not be altered once they are issued. Classes cannot be dropped once the midterm report card is issued. Prior to this date courses may be dropped with parent and high school office permission. All changes to timetables must be approved through the high school office.

With the subject teacher’s permission students may pick up academic courses within two weeks of the semester’s start. Elective classes may be picked up beyond this date providing the subject teacher approves the request.
