York Community High School
2019 Summer School Courses

In speaking with families throughout the course selection process, we are often asked if summer school is necessary to be sure that they can get in all of the graduation requirements? Is summer school necessary to be able take a study hall to keep up in their freshman year? Is a study hall even necessary? In short, the answer is no: most students at York don’t take a study hall, and in taking a full schedule, students are able to meet graduation requirements.  We hope that our students see summer school as an opportunity for students to achieve the following goals:

  • Acceleration

  • Enrichment

  • Exploration/Immersion

  • Remediation

When the Summer School Brochure goes online on Monday, December 17, we hope that you see opportunities for our students to explore and to reinvigorate their learning while making sure that they are able to recharge over the summer for the next academic school year. York High School's Academic Summer School Program  is offered in (2) three week sessions: 

  • Our Bridge courses offer opportunities to enrich or to accelerate skills before taking a high school course that may challenge them beyond what they perceived as their limits in middle school;

  • Our World Language classes offer an opportunity to explore a new language or to immerse students in a language in which they may be enrolled during the year;

  • Our Special Topics courses offer students the opportunity to enrich their learning in a topic that we don’t offer during the year;

  • Our Credit Recovery courses offer an opportunity for a student to remediate skills after challenges he/she may have had during the year, so they can stay on track for graduation.

  • Our Technical and Applied Arts courses offer an opportunity for students to explore potential career paths or to enrich their lives by learning a life skill.

Students can earn a semester credit by enrolling in a three week class which meets for both periods each day or a six week class which meets for one period per day.  Our 3 week "Bridge" courses meet for only one period for 3 weeks and offer 1/2 credit.
