Unfortunately, due to the precautions we will be taking to help maintain clean facilities and ensure the safety of our students as well as faculty, we have had to limit the number of students allowed to take Summer ACCESS classes and it is already full. Since the students will be coming to the school to at least take tests and quizzes, we can only have so many students signed up to be able to maintain those parameters we have set in place. We do apologize, but hope that this will help us to have the safest summer possible!
Thank you for your patience and understanding during this unprecedented time.
We will be offering Summer ACCESS courses this summer! There are some things that have changed with the policies regarding Summer ACCESS due to our unique circumstances and everything that is going on so please be sure to read this whole announcement if you are interested in registering for a course!
Registration for Summer ACCESS classes will begin on Monday, May 11th at 8:30 a.m. and close on May 22nd at 3:00 p.m. You will register by logging on to My School Bucks and paying for either a full credit ($100) or half credit ($50) course. After paying for the course, you will be emailed a form to fill out regarding the specific class that you are interested in taking. Please be sure to check the email that you have listed on My School Bucks to access this form. Click here to see the course listing.
ACCESS classes will begin on June 8th. Due to the limited amount of time that students will be able to work and the limited number of students allowed on campus, we are limiting students to ONE ACCESS class this summer. Summer ACCESS classes are only for students who have FINISHED the 9th grade.
Students will be REQUIRED to come to the school to take quizzes and tests. Due to the fact that we will be limiting the number of students allowed on campus, the student will be REQUIRED to contact their counselor beforehand to schedule a time to come to the school to take these tests and quizzes.
Please let your counselor know if you have any questions!
Updates for tryouts and applications will be posted here.
