    Summer School SUMMER CREDIT RECOVERY REGISTRATION

    Any student who fails a core subject area course (i.e., an English, Math, Science, and/or Social Studies course) that is required for graduation must retake the course to recover the credit. Students may also choose to retake a course in order to improve their grade and overall GPA; please know, however, that only grades of D and F are eligible for forgiveness, with the exception of Cs earned in middle school.

    Courses will be taken via Edmentum, an individualized computer-based credit recovery program that allows students to work at their own pace until content is mastered.

    Students will be able to recover credit in the following subject areas:

    • English
    • Math - students needing to recover Algebra 1 should complete a Summer Bridge Application
    • Science - students needing to recover Chemistry will need to select another high school
    • Social Studies

    Our Credit Recovery Program will run from June 3rd through July 18th. Students will be required to attend Monday through Thursday, from 8:30am to 12:30pm. Students are not required to stay the entire summer session if they finish recovering their credits earlier.

    For more information, please contact:

    Preparing for the PSAT/NMSQT – SAT Suite | College Board

    PSAT/NMSQT Student Guide

    The PSAT/NMSQT evaluates the skills each student has developed in mathematics and evidence-based reading and writing; and also provides the tools a student needs to reach his or her college goals.  Because the PSAT/NMSQT evaluates the same skills as the SAT, taking this assessment is an effective way for a student to start getting ready for the SAT.  Additionally, the PSAT/NMSQT gives each student personalized feedback about their academic strengths and weaknesses, helping each student to prepare for success in college and careers. A score of 430 on the math section also provides students with an Algebra 1 EOC concordant score needed for graduation requirements.
