    In Many Cases: A Successful Summer Experience Depends on How Well You Plan Now! Good Luck!

    Please notify the Counseling Office if you run into a link that no longer works.

    *Reminder: If you are planning to get high school credit for any of these experiences that offer legitimate accreditation, please see your Counselor for an Equivalency Form Agreement before you enroll in the class.

    • If you are ambitious and want an educationally enriched experience, try one of these.
    • If you have failed a class and want to make something up, try one of the summer schools.
    • If you have to go away for the summer and live with another parent, there can be a summer school at the local accredited high school. Have your parent inquire.
    • Contact colleges and schools if no contact info has been given.
    • Contact any college and inquire as to a summer high school experience. Let the Counseling Office know if you find ones that are not on this list.
    • Many specialized experiences are intended for sophomores going in to their junior year, or juniors going to be seniors but not limited to that. Read/investigate carefully!
