Summer school is predominately designed for students in need of recovering loss credit for courses failed during the school year. All summer school courses must be taken from an accredited program. Seniors who have failed one or more of the graduation requirements will be required to repeat the failed course(s) in an accredited summer school program before being able to receive their high school diploma and their high school transcript showing their graduation date.
Students wishing to enroll in summer school courses for academic enrichment in any discipline must discuss their plans with their guidance counselor prior to taking the course(s). It is the residency policy of BCHS that all core credit requirements for graduation must be taken at BCHS prior to seeking credit acquisition from another institution. As an example, if BCHS requires three years of math for graduation, a BCHS student may take Algebra 1 at BCHS; Geometry at another institution, but two other math courses such as Algebra 2 and Precalculus must be taken at BCHS in order to meet the three credit requirement in math for graduation. This same policy holds true with all other departments.
Advancement enrichment courses from another accredited institution may be placed on the BCHS student transcript, but the grade will not count in a student’s GPA calculations. All exceptions may be petitioned through the office of the Vice President of Academic Growth.
