High School Summer Academic
Before signing up for summer academic courses, please check with your counselor regarding which semester you are remediating or let them know you are looking to advance into an upper level course prior to the fall semester. They will help you determine if you are required to take 3 weeks (Semester 1 or 2) or all 6 weeks. Each “semester” is referred to as Session 1 or Session 2 respectively. For additional information, refer to the student-parent handbook, page 27 for “Retaking a Course policy”.
All courses run Monday through Friday, 8:00am – 1:00pm, with the exception of June 19th and July 4th in observance of federal holidays.
Off Campus Summer School Credit
We encourage St. Francis students to remain on-campus for any academic classes they may take in the summer. This is the only way we can guarantee alignment with curriculum in subsequent courses. However, we also understand there may be instances in which a student wishes to complete a summer course at another Catholic high school. In this case, a St. Francis student will need prior approval from an Assistant Principal in order for a non-St. Francis course, taken at another Catholic high school, to be applied towards her graduation requirements, transcript, and GPA. See your Counselor to obtain an approval form or to set a plan to remediate specific courses prior to registering for any off-campus courses.
