Credit Recovery Summer School–SPOTS STILL AVAILABLE!

On Graduation Day 2017, one senior frantically worked to finish online credit recovery courses as graduation rehearsal began.  Don’t let this happen to you! Recover credits immediately instead of procrastinating and causing unnecessary stress, anxiety, and doom.  Spots still available at summer school, June 12-30 in the high school (8-3 pm; please bring lunch).  Students that complete online courses in person on campus are 85% more likely to complete courses by the end of the summer assigned.  Sign up now using this form!

Credit recovery is especially important for soon-to-be-tenth graders, and these students often see credit recovery as least urgent.  Researchers at the University of Chicago found ninth-grade status to be the single-best factor of whether or not a student would graduate:

“This indicator identifies students as on-track if they earn at least five full-year course credits and no more than one semester F in a core course in their first year of high school. On-track students are more than three and one-half times more likely to graduate from high school in four years than off-track students. The indicator is a more accurate predictor of graduation than students’ previous achievement test scores or their background characteristics.”
