FEATURES OF PROGRAM

  • Courses should be completed in about 12 weeks, but the timing is up to you.
  • Students who need a course for Fall Post-Secondary entrance should start no later than March 21, 2014 to ensure completion by the end of June, 2014

    BOOK RETURNS

  • Book returns should be made at the time of your final exam, or if you decide to discontinue your course. Be sure to complete a book return form.

    COSTS

  • In addition to the $40 marking fee that students pay for a course(s), there is a $30 annual counselling fee and an $100 refundable book deposit. If students are still in full-time high school, an additional $300 per course.  Part-time high school students do not pay the extra fee but will need a Principal-to-Principal Transfer Request stating part-time and asking for the student to take a correspondence course.
  • St. Louis offers payment through direct debit, MasterCard, or Visa. Payments are made in the main office.
  • Requests for a book deposit refund must be made no later than one-year upon the termination of your course.

    LESSONS

  • Submitting TWO lessons per week per course is recommended. Consideration may be given to accelerate your completion by your marker. Lessons must be done completely and thoroughly, every question indicated in the lesson books. You MUST complete both KEY and SUPPORT questions. Avoid one word, one sentence answers unless that is what is asked for. If you are unable to do a question or section, see a tutor (see schedule above).  Markers will return incomplete lesson UNMARKED.

    EXAMS

  • Exams are written at the Adult Learning Centres under supervision. You will be notified by your teacher-marker of the course requirements regarding exams. Refer to the schedule of course offerings to determine exam requirements in each particular course.
  • All courses will require a minimum 50% on the exam to ensure successful credit completion.

YOU MUST PASS THE EXAMS TO PASS THE COURSE

  • FINAL MARKS for most Correspondence courses will consist of a 70% weighting for lessons and 30% weighting for the combined midterm and final exams. See the student information sheet (SIS) that is provided with your first set of lessons for details.
  • LITERACY – all courses in all subject areas (including math!) will incorporate a percentage of each lesson and exam for literacy (spelling, grammar, etc.).
  • LESSON REPEATS are permitted for a lesson mark below 50%. Since the focus of a repeat is on learning the concepts and skills, the second attempt on that lesson will be marked no higher than 65%. No more than 2 out of 20 lessons may be redone.
