Credit Academy (10-12)

Credit Academy (10-12)
Students in science class
Credit Academy provides an opportunity for students entering grades 10-12 to make up missed high school credits in a fun, flexible and alternative way. Teachers provide unique and innovative opportunities for students to grow and learn throughout the summer. (Students must qualify to participate. Please contact your school counselor for more details.)
Credit Recovery:
Credit Recovery is a more standard classroom program where students take classes with a skilled teacher to learn core subjects such as English or Algebra. Class sizes are kept small so students can receive individual support and earn missing credits. Students can take up to three courses (.25 credits/course) during each session of Summer Academy for a total of 6 quarter credits (1.50 credits over the summer).
