High School Summer School


Students have the opportunity to pre-register for summer school during the month of June with their school counselors.
1.       Students requiring summer school are encouraged to schedule an appointment with their counselor during the month of June. Classes end June 13th, so students  should schedule the appointment prior to leaving, but can always email or phone their counselor after that date to schedule an appointment.
2.       Phone or email registrations are not allowed, students must meet with their counselor in person. 
3.       During the meeting, the counselor will verify the student’s course/Regents Exam needs, indicate course(s)/Regents Exams selected, and register the student on eSchool.
4.       Parents/Guardians will be notified by the school that their child has registered for summer school, and will be asked to sign a contract outlining the summer school procedures, which will include course progress monitoring, behavior and a health questionnaire.


Students have the opportunity to register during the June Regents Exam period at their home school if they know summer school is required. In addition, students can register by following the schedule below:
