HS Summer School

  • Ann Arbor Public Schools HS Summer School Goals:

    The Summer School Program is a nurturing collaborative learning environment where we focus on improving all aspects of the instructional core to increase academic outcomes. Our priority will also be to maximize peer-to-peer collaboration to increase conceptual understanding and foster social-emotional learning. Students that participate in Summer School will experience learning in a nurturing face-to-face environment following the Super 6 Covid guidelines.  Students will have access to additional support to recover and reinforce learning concepts focused on individualized areas needing improvement. Connecting with ALL students and student success in the next course are the benchmarks of our program.

    Free for AAPS students. Enroll now for fall to take advantage of these summer options.
