2023-24 High School Summer School

Course Acceleration Summer School


    Acceleration Summer School (eLearning) exists to help students accelerate their learning outside the traditional school year and earn an additional credit over the summer. These courses are completely online. An FNSBSD teacher will be available to support and assist students who are taking acceleration classes, as well as grading and providing feedback. eLearning courses are rigorous online courses that require dedication and determination to be successful.  These semester-long (18 week) courses must be completed in the 4 weeks allocated for summer school. Select courses will be offered through APEX or Google Classroom and are taught by a certified district teacher.
