Mandatory International Student Enrichment Program for Grades 6-8
The after school enrichment program for St. Bernadette School International students will run three days a week, from 3:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. It will operate independently of the Extended Day program and offer specific instruction focusing on the four aspects of learning and communicating- reading, writing, listening, and speaking- in an effort to increase English proficiency in all academic areas. If requested, special instruction and support will be provided for TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) preparation. The fee for this unique program is included in the International Student Tuition.
The instructor leading this program, Eighth grade teacher Ms. Jezierski, is licensed and certified by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. She possesses the SEI (Sheltered English Immersion) endorsement from the state and has years of experience working with international students.
