At St. Matthew we have one CTF A course which lasts the whole year, and three CTF B courses, which are offered in tri-semester (3 month blocks) throughout the year.
Students will have an opportunity to indicate their choice of option classes, and every effort will be made to ensure that students’ first choices are given. However, you should know that CTF classes will be offered based on student enrollment and teacher availability. This means that depending on student interest, some CTF courses may not be offered. Your students order of choices will help us determine the best courses for our students.
We make decisions on which student is admitted into which course based on a first come first serve basis,
