Summer School

Review the details below for more information on enrollment and registration for summer school options.

Credit Recovery

High school students who have failed a course required for graduation may wish to consider summer school for credit recovery to remain on track for graduation and/or to avoid repeating a full-year course the next school year. To access information regarding all summer school options, see links in the left margin.

Prior to registering for any credit recovery course, students must meet with their school counselor. The counselor will approve/verify the course(s) and examine the student's unique circumstances to help him or her progress toward meeting graduation requirements. 

Educere Virtual Summer School

Students may only take online courses with the approved online provider, Educere. Students may take a maximum of two (2) courses for credit recovery each summer. The student or parent/guardian is responsible for all course fees. 

If a student registers for a course without prior authorization, he/she may not receive credits and will not be reimbursed for payments made to Educere. Authorization is complete once the counselor documents the student conference and the courses the student may take. 

Once provided with the course registration code, visit the Educere website and enter the identifying course number in the red box at the top of the page.

  • Registration deadline: July 2, 2021 
  • Final exam administered by Educere upon completion of coursework.
  • Course completion deadline: August 13, 2021
