High School Summer Session


This year we will follow a virtual format for all summer classes.

Summer 2021 Calendar

Monday, June 21 - Classes Begin

Thursday, July 15 - Prep Classes End

Thursday, July 22 - High School Classes End

*Summer High School students should sign up for classes online through the Veracross Parent Portal.

Teachers will email students with instructions and course expectations. Classes will be held online at the designated times unless the instructor provides different instructions.

Students are expected to be on the Google Meet at the times as if classes were being held in-person. Parents are encouraged to register before Friday, June 19 as class materials will start being distributed by email on that day. 

Books for most courses are the same as those required during the year. For any classes that have required books to be purchased such as English and Social Studies, these books must be ordered through during registration. This is a separate fee. Books will be ordered based upon enrollment. 

An email notification will be sent out when these materials are available for pickup through the counseling center early next week. Please call in advance to arrange a time during regular office hours.

  • A grade of D in the first two levels of a foreign language
Special Notes:
  • A grade of D in Honors Algebra 1 or Honors Algebra 2 does not result in required summer school. The student will drop out of the honors math program.
  • In some cases, the student will be asked to repeat the course.
Failure to make up a class in summer school will result in a $400 fee being assessed for administrative and scheduling purposes
