Secondary Summer School

students in classroomThe purpose of Summer School is to enrich the education of students and to permit students to earn credits needed for graduation or promotion. Specifically, Summer School programs afford students the opportunity to take repeat courses to meet deficiencies, enroll in required courses for advancement, and enroll in elective courses for enrichment.

The general guidelines for Summer School are as follows:

  • Credit for repeated work will be granted on the same basis as that for new work. A student may receive a unit credit for a course only once.

  • Courses which students are studying for the first time shall be structured to require completion of all course requirements normally taught over a minimum of 140 clock hours of classroom instruction per unit of credit.


Secondary Summer School for 2019 will be held at Atlee High School. 

9414 Atlee Station Road
Mechanicsville, VA 23116

For middle and high school face-to-face courses, students are expected to be in attendance every day. A student who accumulates a total of more than two days (or eleven hours) of absences will be dismissed without a tuition refund. Any exception to this must be approved in writing by the summer school principal and classroom teacher. Requests for vacations will not be approved.

Online learning students are required to attend the mandatory face-to-face meetings for orientation, final exams, and standardized testing. Additional expectations for face-to-face meetings may be required for some online courses. For students taking a blended course, they will be permitted to miss only one face-to-face session, with the exception of the orientation and exam days.

After June 28, 2019, High School Course students will receive academic penalty for dropping a course.
