ATTENDANCE: Classes begin on Monday, June 25, and conclude on Friday, July 27, except where noted in the course description. We will be closed on July 4 in observance of Independence Day.
Academic Review Classes: Students are not allowed to miss any classes. Students who miss class may be dismissed from the Summer Program, at the discretion of the Director of the Summer Program, and will not receive credit for the course. If a student has more than two absences, credit cannot be given for the course. This should not be interpreted as entitling a student to two absences. Students who are truant will be dismissed from the Summer Program. Lateness for class twice will be treated as a day of unexcused absence. Detention and makeup of class time may result from attendance issues. Requests for vacation may be considered if tutoring, at an additional cost, can be arranged.
Conditional Acceptance Classes: Students who are in Conditional Acceptance courses, and have a pre-planned vacation, must get permission to miss class by May 30. Vacation requests, after May 30, cannot be honored.
Enrichment Classes: Students who are taking a course for their own enrichment (not required to take the class) may miss class, but must inform the Director of the Summer Program prior to the absence.
If a student is late to class, he/she must report to the Summer Program Office to be admitted to class.
In the case of an absence, the student should present a note to the Director of the Summer Program on the day the student returns in order to be admitted to class. Additionally, a parent/guardian must telephone the Summer Program Office at 410-825-4266 x119 before 9:30 a.m. on the day of the absence.
BOOKS: A booklist will be enclosed with the course confirmation. Students will be expected to acquire their text(s) the first day of class. Most textbooks will be available in the Cardinal Shop to rent. Please note all book rentals must be made in cash. Cardinal Shop hours will be 8:00 a.m. to noon from June 26 to June 30.
EVALUATION: The requirements and syllabi for the Summer Program courses have been established and approved by the regular Academic Departments and the Administration. Students must successfully complete ALL course requirements stipulated by the instructor in order to receive a passing grade.
1. A minimum passing grade of 70 is required in order to pass an academic review class. A student who receives a grade below 70 in any academic review class will have failed the requirements and will not receive credit for the course. A teacher reserves the right to override the calculated grade average if a student fails to satisfactorily put forth effort during all five weeks.
2. Report cards will be issued to each student weekly. Report cards are to be signed by the student's parent/guardian and returned to the instructor on the first day of class after distribution.
3. Final reports will be mailed to parents and schools within two weeks after the last day of class. The final report will indicate if the student has successfully completed all course work and requirements.
