Summer Academic Programs

Original Credit Courses

Original Credit Courses

These courses are intended for students who seek to advance in their studies by concentrating their academic effort on one subject in a relatively fast-paced and intensive environment that features longer classes but significantly fewer weeks that the regular school year. July 5th is a holiday. In order to take a course, students must have a computer or tablet (smartphone not acceptable) that is camera-, microphone-, and speaker-enabled.

Students are encouraged to consider enrolling in a summer school original credit class as they make course selections for the upcoming academic year.  Space is limited for each class, and approval from the Studies Office is required for all registrations.  See descriptions below for any teacher approvals required.
