Below is information regarding the Academic Summer Program for both Conditional Acceptance and Academic Review classes. After reading the information below, to register for Conditional Acceptance or Enrichment Classes, click on the "Conditional Acceptance/Enrichment" or "Academic Review Courses" links below (when available).
Attendance: Classes begin on Monday, June 26, and conclude on Friday, July 28, except where noted in the course description. We will be closed on Monday, July 3rd and Tuesday July 4th in observance of Independence Day.
If a student is late to class, he/she must report to the Summer Program Office to be admitted to class.
In 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 x128 before 8:30 a.m. on the day of the absence.
Conditional Acceptance Classes: Students who are in Conditional Acceptance courses, and have a pre-planned vacation, must get permission to miss class by Friday, June 16th. Vacation requests past that date 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.
Books: A booklist will be enclosed in a welcome email that will be sent out by Wednesday, June 14th. Students will be expected to acquire their text(s) the first day of class. Most textbooks will be available to rent. Cash and personal checks accepted. The Cardinal Shop will not be open during summer school.
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 emailed or sent to the parent's email 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.
Registration: All courses are open to male and female students of any religious affiliation or school system. All students must have permission from a parent/guardian to attend. Students are responsible for registering for the proper course(s). Registration after June 22 should be done in person in the Summer Program Office. Summer program tuition must be paid in full by June 22 in order to begin classes. Any exception to this policy must be approved by the Director of the Summer Program.
Summer Program Office: The Summer Program Office is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to noon. All business should be conducted during these hours.
Withdrawal: Requests for withdrawal from courses must be made in writing to the Director of the Summer Program by a student’s parent. In cases of withdrawal for personal reasons after June 16th but before June 21st, 75% of the tuition will be refunded. No tuition refunds will be given in cases of withdrawal after June 23rd. If a student is dismissed because of disciplinary or attendance reasons, no refund of tuition will be given regardless of the date.
