High School (8-12) Summer Learning Programs Overview
High school is an important time for all students. During Summer session, eligible eighth graders can prepare for high school. Students in grades 9-12 can stay on track for graduation through credit recovery during Summer Session 1 and/or Summer Session 2.
Eighth Grade Opportunities (offered both sessions this year)
Eighth grade 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 Summer Session 1 OR 2 OR CDF Freedom Schools.
Students in grades 9-12 who are behind by six or fewer credits can register for Summer Session 1 OR Summer Session 2. Students in grades 9-12 who are behind by more than six credits should attend BOTH Session 1 & 2. Digital options (using computer-based curriculum) are also available for students who are 16-21** years old. AGAPE students currently using SPPS childcare will attend Summer session at Gordon Parks with AGAPE as the childcare site. Talk with your student’s school counselor to find the best Summer options and to register.
**Student must be 16 by the last day of a Summer session to qualify. Students who reach their 21st birthday during Summer session may finish the session, but not enroll in another one.
