Arithmetic and Reading at Shaw

 

SOARS Registration Form

 

What:

A three-week, pre-high school summer program for incoming Archbishop Shaw student for whom a review of basic Math and English would be useful to maintain skills and remediate deficiencies. Participants will also be guided to complete their summer reading requirement.

When:

Where:

Archbishop Shaw High School. Drop off and pick-up at the Administration Building off of the Westbank Expressway.
