Summer school courses are designed to help students develop fundamentals and prerequisite skills for the upcoming school year. Students receive weekly evaluations and a final grade. If a student is taking a course for credit recovery, a passing grade can replace the student’s failing grade from the previous school year. All course offerings are dependent upon satisfactory student enrollment.

Summer school is open to Great Hearts students. Students are required to conform to Lincoln Preparatory Academy standards of behavior and dress code, outlined in the Family Handbook (found on the Lincoln Prep home page). Students who attend from other Great Hearts schools may wear the uniform of their school. Students are permitted to wear non-uniform tennis shoes during summer school only (but they will need to wear uniform shoes when the school year starts in August).

During summer school, students will enter and exit through the east entrance of the school (facing Gilbert Rd.). Students will not have access to a locker, the front office, or the health assistant. Any medications over and above Tylenol or Ibuprofen (including all prescriptions) should be left with the Summer School Director.

All classes are June 1 – 24 (Monday through Thursday), 8 – 11am, $250/student unless otherwise noted. Please note that the first class is on a Tuesday, due to Memorial Day. Since all classes will occur simultaneously, a student may only enroll in one class.
