Why is summer learning so important?

Summer courses and programs allow students to have structured learning time to help them keep their minds active, bridge knowledge gaps, and prepare for the next school year.

If you’re looking for ways to keep your children learning this summer with safe and structured educational opportunities, consider enrolling them in our online summer school programs.

Over 150 summer courses!

By taking summer courses, students can earn high school credit, take prerequisites, make room in next year’s schedule, and recover credits for courses that they previously failed.

In our summer online classes, students have 10 weeks to complete coursework at their own pace and will be supported along the way by a highly qualified, Michigan-certified online instructor who is an expert in their subject area.

These courses have flexible start date options, which means families can select which option best works for their summer schedule. The majority of our summer courses are designed for high school students (grades 9-12), but we offer do offer a smaller catalog of select middle school courses (grades 6-8).

IMPORTANT: Check with your school counselor before enrolling!

Students should talk to their school counselor before enrolling to ensure our 10-week summer courses will be accepted for credit at their school.
