Not every program will be supported, however your input is valuable as we begin to plan for next year. Please complete the online survey before April 8th. You can access the survey using the following URL:

Students who have failed an English or History class and need to make up those credits in order to graduate will be given priority enrollment. Students who have received Ds in English or History may also request an opportunity to improve their grade in summer school, but enrollment to these students will be given on a first come, first served basis if there is room in the program. Registration forms are available in the counseling office.
