ASTEC ACADEMIC CALENDAR

     

  • We run a three-term academic year with specialized programs namely, the Easter School and the “Summer School”.
    The Easter school is a compulsory special school organized during the Second term or Easter holidays for all the certificate class students (SS 3 and JS 3) to mop up any academic deficiencies or uncovered areas in their syllabus before the terminal examinations in both the Junior and Senior Secondary Schools.
    The “Summer School” is a full residential holiday School which usually starts from the first week in August every year and end in the second week in September. The Summer School serves a number of people a number of purposes:


    1. Our regular students who failed to meet up the promotion criteria in their classes are asked to try to use the Summer School period to make up their deficiencies and be promoted to a new class at the end of the Summer School. This is one of the services we render to ease the burden on parents so that their deficient wards may not cost them another full year’s school fees to repeat a class. However, when Summer School is recommended for a student, that is, if we write Try Summer in a student’s result, if the student fails to attend the Summer School, and is still interested in continuing to school here, the student must repeat the previous class for one year. In essence, Try Summer means that your child did not meet up the required promotion criteria and is not promotable by our standard, but, he/she has an opportunity to use the Summer School period to make up the deficiencies and be promoted. Therefore, those parents who have the misguided opinion that the Summer School is not important for their deficient wards should remember that they are making a choice between asking their ward to repeat a class for one year and using a six-weeks Summer School to make up at less than a term’s fees.


    2. The Summer School serves students intending to be admitted into this school, who did not write the entrance examination or those who failed the entrance examination and any others, as an avenue to gain admission. Such students usually attend the Summer School to write the Summer School examination as an entrance examination. All successful candidates in this examination are usually admitted.


    3. Students from other Schools can attend the Summer School as a Holiday program, and go back to their former School at the end of the Summer School.


    4. The Summer School serves as the beginning of the first term for all students in SS 3 and JSS 3. This is the reason for making the Summer School compulsory for students in these classes.
