“For academic credit” courses will be noted in the course descriptions. Please note, students who wish to enroll in a for-credit course must receive departmental approval prior to participation. No action is needed at this time. Should a student not be eligible to participate in the course, you will be notified by the Summer Program office.
Academic credit for some courses offered during the Summer Program is applicable on the following basis:
- Full Year Credit: 6 weeks (120 hours of in-class instruction), 6 credits
- Trimester Credit: 2-3 weeks (40 hours of in-class instruction), 2 credits
Due to the short duration of the Summer Program, absences must be avoided. A student who is absent for more than two (2) scheduled classes in a six-week session or one (1) absence in a three-week session will prevent the student from meeting the classroom attendance requirement and being in compliance with University of California standards for courses earning academic credit. Absences may not take place during a final exam or lab practical. For Credit Recovery courses, absences are not permitted.
Should a student exceed the absence policy, the course will be considered for enrichment purposes only and will not be assigned formal academic credit. The only extenuating circumstance will be if a student is absent due to illness or a medical emergency; in that instance, provisions will be made to make up that class, bearing in mind the following:
- A doctor’s note will be required to confirm the absence, and presented to the teacher and the Summer Program office;
- The student will work with the teacher and the Associate Head of Upper School to complete the make-up work and assessments in a timely manner.
Should a student exceed the absence policy due to COVID, a meeting will be scheduled with the family to discuss the course of action.
Please Note: For any absence, the student is responsible for making up all missed course work.
