Secondary Summer School for 2023
Summer Learning allows students in middle and high school to preview content they will learn in the upcoming school year and review critical content that they did not show proficiency in the previous year. High school students can also earn original credit over the summer to provide greater flexibility in their schedules and to allow them the ability to change their course progressions. Our menu of learning options for students is summarized below and outlined in greater detail when clicked on.
Additional course information and details will be coming soon.
1. Preview Learning Courses
These FREE online, asynchronous courses offered in ELA, Math, Science, Social Studies, and World Language, will review the prior year’s standards and skills while providing students with an introduction to the next course in the sequence. To learn more, visit Preview Learning Courses!
