Original Credit Courses

Students are encouraged to consider enrolling in a summer school original credit class as they make course selections for the upcoming academic year.  Original Credit courses are credit classes that allow students to acquire new skills and information.  They are intended for the highly motivated student who seeks to advance in his studies by concentrating his academic effort on one subject in a relatively fast-paced and intensive environment that features longer classes but significantly fewer weeks than the regular school year. Students should anticipate that they will need to devote hours both to time in class and independent work outside of class time.  

Minimum and maximum enrollments may apply for all summer school original credit courses.

See the descriptions below for any teacher approval required or for more information:
