HS Summer School

  • Ann Arbor Public Schools HS Summer School Goals:

    The Summer School (SS) Program is a nurturing collaborative learning environment where we focus on improving all aspects of the instructional core to increase academic outcomes. The SS Program is organized by balancing asynchronous and synchronous online learning while focusing on connecting with students and delivering key academic concepts. Our priority will also be to maximize peer to peer virtual collaboration to increase conceptual understanding and foster social-emotional learning. Students that participate in Summer School will experience learning in a virtual environment with 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.
