After School Advantage: 9th Grade Writing

Grades 9-12

The start of a new school year is the best opportunity to get ahead. This course is designed to supplement and advance students while they are concurrently enrolled in their Writing class at school. The goal is that by the time the material is covered in class, it will be review, not new, for your student. In this 6-week, 12-session class, 9th-grade students will reinforce and master the foundational writing skills—such as topic sentence and thesis statements, developing and supporting arguments, and writing clearly and concisely—that are required to succeed throughout the rest of the year.

Whether your 9th grader is trying to get ahead, stay ahead, or avoid falling behind, this class will give your student the advantage they need to succeed!
