2019 Summer Course Information

Dear Parents & Guardians,

This summer, Upper Perkiomen High School will be offering summer school courses online for remediation, credit recovery and enrichment. We are pleased to provide this opportunity to our students and families, as we seek to offer flexible learning spaces and timeframes to our student body. Students will have access to their online coursework wherever they can access an internet connection. They will not be required to come into school to complete their course work. However, occasional face-to-face support and check-ins will be offered to enrolled students at Upper Perkiomen High School. If students wish to engage in a face-to-face check-in, transportation will be the responsibility of the student or parent/guardian.

All interested students must complete the Summer Online Course Registration Form, which can be found on the high school website under the academics tab. Interested students must complete this form by July 5th. There will be an orientation session on Tuesday, July 9th at 5:00 PM in the High School Audion, which registered students and parents are invited to attend. The cost for each course is $50 for all students who qualify for free and reduced lunch and $100 per course for all other students. Parents and students can pay for the coursework via cash or check made payable to Upper Perkiomen School District. Payment will be collected at the July 9th orientation.

Students will be required to have a functioning laptop over the summer in order to access their coursework. Courses will be credit bearing according to the summer course offering document linked below. Courses that are available to students can be found at the following link:

Summer Course Offerings

Please note that students cannot take Keystone courses as a part of the summer program (Algebra 1, Biology, and English 10). All courses must be completed by Monday, August 19th to earn credit. Courses completed through the summer credit recovery program will be issued a grade of satisfactory or unsatisfactory, and this does not change the previously earned grade on a student’s transcript. If you have questions about the summer online course registration process, please contact the high school office.

Sincerely,

Robert Carpenter, Ed.D

Principal

Upper Perkiomen High School
