SPRING 2022 FINAL EXAMS
Grades 9-11


GOALS

  • Students learn from experience of preparing and taking “full” final exams (90 minutes, cumulative summative assessment) in core academic disciplines.
  • Intentional study support for students who have not had much experience with finals before, which at this time is all of them.
  • Reduced grade impact compared to “normal,” with that lack of prior experience in mind.
  • Guide students’ time management those days and keep building management effective for an exam atmosphere. 

LUNCH DURING FINALS

Lunch will not be provided in the Brebeuf Jesuit Cafeteria on Exam days.  Students who will be here during lunch should plan to bring their lunch with them on exam days.

Freeze Days

  • Monday, May 23 and Tuesday, May 24 – lunch will be provided as normal.
