    PROGRAM

    Students may register for a repeat summer school course only if they have been previously enrolled in the course for its duration. 

    Students may enroll in two (2) repeat classes.  All subjects are taken for credit.

    All courses, with the exception of World Language, are provided through Edgenuity, an online, individualized program of study with assistance from certified RCPS teachers.  Students enrolled in an Edgenuity class take a pre-assessment to determine the learning standards in which they are deficient. Once they begin class, Edgenuity students must meet summer school attendance requirements. However, when students demonstrate proficiency in the required standards, they will be released with the approval of the administration.
