Summit College provide students with an educational advantage! In addition to focusing on core elements of the Ontario curriculum, students are also provided with specific training in "how to learn". Every student who attends Summit receives training in learning strategies based on their individual needs.
Students may also choose to enrol in part or all of Summit's 10-module Study Skills program which covers the following topics:
- Learning Styles
- Time Management
- Oral Communication
- Memory Aids
- Essay Writing
- Problem Solving
After completing Summit's Study Skills program, students are better able to understand:
- How their minds work
- How different people approach learning tasks in different ways
- What learning strategies work best for them
- How to successfully adapt their abilities for tasks that fall outside their profile of strengths
With this knowledge, students develop an attitude toward learning that includes curiosity, motivation and a hunger to learn more. This is often reflected in an improvement on the Learning Skills section of the report card as the student becomes a self-directed learner. The skills that students gain from Summit's Study Skills program help them succeed well into their future.
