High School (8-12) Overview
High school is an important time for all students. During S-Term 2, eligible eighth graders can prepare for high school. Students in grades 9-12 can stay on track for graduation through credit recovery during S-Term 1 and/or S-Term 2.
Eighth Grade Opportunities
S-Term 1 is not available to students in grade 8. In S-Term 2, students participate in leadership opportunities, prepare for the transition to high school, and work on higher level math and reading skills. Students in grade 8 may register for S-Term 2 OR CDF Freedom Schools.
Students in grades 9-12 who are behind by six or fewer credits can register for S-Term 1 OR S-Term 2. Students in grades 9-12 who are behind by more than six credits should attend BOTH S-Term 1 AND S-Term 2. Online classes are available through Saint Paul College for students who are 16-21** years old. AGAPE and Harding students currently using SPPS childcare will attend S-Term at Gordon Parks with AGAPE as the childcare site. Talk with your student’s school counselor to find the best S-Term options and to register.
Here is a list of times and locations of S-Term sites for elementary, middle and high schools. The list also includes Online Credit Recovery and CDF Freedom School sites.
