High School (8-12) Overview
High school is an important time for all students. During S-Term 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 (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 S-Term 1 OR 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. 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 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.
**Student must be 16 by the last day of an S-Term session to qualify. Students who reach their 21st birthday during S-Term may finish the session, but not enroll in another one.
This a list of times and locations of S-Term sites for elementary, middle and high schools. The list also includes Digital Credit Recovery and CDF Freedom School sites. Sites are listed by grade levels for a student's current grade.
Students in grades 9-12 who are behind by six or fewer credits can register for S-Term 1 OR S-Term 2 through their regular school counselor. Students in grades 9-12 who are behind by more than six credits should attend BOTH S-Term 1 AND S-Term 2. There are both options to learn in the traditional classroom and with a blended format (digital curriculum with class meetings twice a week).
Students currently in grades K-11 can participate in sports, arts, environmental and cultural programs with other students from across the metro area. These summer programs are offered at no cost to students.
