Creative Writing Classes (ages 7-10 & 11-15):

Vocabulary BoOST (Ages 7-10 & 11-15):

No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world." -John Keating

Embrace the power of expression this summer by committing yourself to the accelerated vocabulary program at Ray Academics. Specialized vocabulary units will be used to equip students to improve the use of words in different contexts. Summer is the perfect time to develop this craft so that you can go back to school with improved vocabulary that you can apply in your work. These units not only assist you in the application of the new and better words but it also improves reading comprehension a great deal.

O LEVEL Past PAPERS:

The best way to score well in an exam is to be well prepared. We will be doing 8 to 10 O level past papers this summer. We will be doing both IGCSE and GCE English Language papers. The students will do mock papers and a thorough analysis will be provided after the paper is graded. The examiner’s style of grading will be reviewed with the students to prepare them for their O level Exams. 

Hot Off the Press: A CouRse in Journalism (Ages 10-15):

Empower yourself by learning how to use your own voice to impact others. In this course, students will learn different forms of journalism such as blogging, article writing, interviewing etc. Students will experiment with different styles of learning and compile it in the form of a magazine.
