All courses, grades six through twelve, will be scheduled at Scranton High School. Classes will be conducted from Monday through Thursday with the exception of the first week of July, when classes will be held on Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday, July 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. No classes will be held on Thursday, July 4th. Also, no classes will be held on Fridays. Classes in all subjects, grades six through twelve, will be taught provided there is sufficient enrollment to make the offered course cost effective (twenty
students per class). Courses may be taken for MAKE-UP, ENRICHMENT, OR CREDIT.
Resident and non-resident students may enroll. A $10.00 non-refundable registration fee must be paid by all registrants. A late registration fee of $20.00 will be charged. All summer school classes must be paid in full by Thursday, July 18, 2013.
Make-Up courses are two hours and fifteen minutes in length. They are intended for
students who must “make up” a course which they have failed during the regular school
year. The cost for most offerings to non-resident students is one hundred ten ($110.00) dollars. The highest grade that can be received in a Make-Up course is 83.
Enrichment courses are also two hours and fifteen minutes in length. They are intended for students who wish to preview a course which they will take, to learn more about a subject which they have taken and passed, or to explore a new area. The grade for Enrichment courses will be satisfactory or unsatisfactory.
Credit courses are four hours and thirty minutes ( 4 hours and 30 minutes) in length. They are intended for students who wish to take a course that they cannot take during the school year or to make room in their schedule for a course that they wish to take during the school year. Credit courses cost two hundred ten ($210.00) dollars for non-residents. The grade for a Credit course is that which is earned.
