Summer school

We offer summer school programs designed to serve the educational needs of a variety of students. Some are "traditional" summer school classes, some are special programs, and others are presented in a "day camp" format.

Please note: Not all programs are available to all students. Any questions about your child's need for summer school programming should be directed to the guidance counselor on your child's campus.
