Summer School 2022 at Alta Sierra

Summer school runs for six weeks (from mid-June to late July) and is divided into to sessions: Session 1 is the first semester and runs for three weeks; Session 2 is considered to be the 2nd semester and runs for the last three weeks. 

2022 Summer School will be held at Alta Sierra Intermediate School.

Students will work with their counselor to register for summer school beginning in March while they are putting in course requests for the 2022-23 school year. At that time students will confirm whether the course they are taking is "In Class" (face-to-face, in the classroom) or completed through Independent Study.

Original Credit Eligibility

Students must have an impacted schedule (AVID, advanced drama, band, leadership, etc.) the following year AND a 3.0 semester grade-point average in order to to be eligible for summer school. 

NOTE ABOUT SOCIAL SCIENCE CLASSES: Students are allowed to take only ONE summer social science course for original credit during their four years of high school. For example, if a student took World History for original credit last summer, he/she WILL NOT be able to take US History for original credit this summer. This rule does not apply to students that need to retake a social science class for credit recovery (see Credit Recover Eligibility requirements below).

Credit Recovery Eligibility

Students must be enrolled at a Clovis Unified school, must need to repeat a course (due to a "D" or "F" grade), and/or be deficient in credits/required courses for graduation in order to be eligible for summer school.
