SUMMER SCHOOL NOTICE

There are many reasons why a student may choose to attend summer school including: 1) promotion to the next grade 2) credit recovery or 3) early graduation. Our summer courses will be taught via APEX, a rigorous, standards-based online course system, used for original credit and credit recovery. Please Note: Students who sign up for S.C. Virtual School, which is different from APEX, work independently of our Summer School; with the exception of testing proctored by Mr. Pompey.

Summer School will be held from June 13th thru June 30th and July 6th thru July 24nd. The computer lab will be open from 9:00am until 1:00pm. Additionally, students are encouraged to work on course assignments outside of summer school hours, as APEX is an online based program and can be accessed anywhere there is an internet connection.

Credit recovery courses are $200.00 each, plus a $75.00 APEX fee. Credit courses are $300.00 each, plus a $75.00 APEX fee. Summer School payments must be made in advance of attendance. The schools will only accept payments in the form of cash, cashier’s check, money order or credit card. No personal checks will be accepted. S.C. Virtual School is free.

The deadline to sign up for Summer School is June 13, 2016. Seating is limited and will be held based on order of payment.  Interested families are encouraged to sign up as soon as possible.
