Based on the town hall meetings, we know that many of you are interested in summer enrichment learning opportunities for your student(s).  Therefore, we are offering the following courses this summer in addition to our normal preschool and day camp programs (if you are interested in one of those, please see our Day Camp tab for more information).  

Each course carries a base cost, and some may be slightly higher due to the materials required for the course.  Courses offered to high school students will allow the student to earn a half-credit elective in areas designed to enhance their academic skills and make them more competitive in the college admissions process.  All courses have a minimum number of students required for the course to be conducted.  If the minimum number of students is not reached, the course will be cancelled, and all money will be refunded.  

In order to issue high school credit, all high school courses are two weeks in length and must meet a set number of hours. Students cannot miss more than 10% of the instructional time for high school courses.  Students who miss more than 10% of the course will not meet the state requirements for contact hours and will not be eligible to earn credit for the course.  

To register for a course, click on the summer registration tab and fill out the form.  Your FACTS account will be billed with a due date seven days prior to the course start date.  You will be considered enrolled when the course fees are paid. Registration deadline for all courses is seven-days prior to the course start date.
