Worthington schools provides the opportunity for students to take classes during the summer in order to catch up on courses that a student has failed or to advance his/ her learning by taking classes for the first time. All courses offered are featured on the Worthington Schools website and for your convenience, registration will be completed online. There is a fee associated with taking advance credit classes, but courses that students are repeating for credit recovery purposes will be offered free of charge. (Please be sure to scroll to the bottom and select HS Credit Recovery to take you to the correct page to sign up for a class that has been failed.) Students who intend to take a course through summer school should sign up as early as possible so that you do not get closed out of a desired course.
During the 2019 summer, summer school will run from June 3 - June 28 at Worthington Academy. Students will have the option of selecting a session from 8-10 or a 10-12 time frame. Additionally, transportation will be available if needed. Students are asked to register before May 17th to make sure you don't get closed out of a spot.
We know that some families are unable to participate in Worthington's summer school program due to schedule conflicts. Students have the option of taking classes from any accredited school and transferring those credits back to Worthington after completion of the course. It is important to understand that the grades from these transfer classes will be reflected on the student's transcript, however, they will not be calculated into the Worthington Schools grade point average. Students are responsible for making sure that they provide a copy of their transcript back to WKHS so that the course can accurately be documented. Unfortunately the counselors are unable to keep a complete list of all of the accredited schools who are offering summer school, but many local area school districts and online schools will offer summer school. If students and parents are interested in non-Worthington summer school options, you are encouraged to search online for summer school courses to find accredited schools that will meet your needs. Probably the school we receive the most transcripts from each year is TRECA. We also recently received information about QDA which offers Math 1 and Math 2 and has comparable costs to TRECA, but all coursework must be complete within 6 weeks.
