Welcoming our JMS students

Welcoming our JMS students

Today Columbia International College is welcoming its youngest students and their parents to campus as they host the Junior Middle School’s (JMS) registration and orientation day.

Students and parents will meet members of Columbia’s executive staff as well as teachers and support staff in both the Maple and Ainsliewood building. This is a great opportunity to learn about the services available in school and in residence and to ask any questions they may have from everything to school programming to the City of Hamilton.

JMS August Calendar

Classes for Columbia’s senior students resume Monday but our Junior Middle School (JMS) students can enjoy a few more days of summer as JMS classes begin on August 31. To ensure students are well-prepared for the upcoming school year, JMS students will be in an intensive English Preparatory Course for just over one week (Aug. 17-26) to help them improve their oral and written skills.
