Completion - gr. 10-12 academic courses - if you wish to do the entire 120 hour course (or your mark is too low to take remedial)
Other schools will have additional courses in ELL, Summer School for the Arts, sports camps, non credit enrichment courses, etc.
Ask your teacher if a remedial course is an option for you in order to pass a course instead of repeating for 10 months next year.
You can take up to 2 remedial or completion courses
- Remedial - 2 hours a day for 4 weeks instead of 40 weeks (10 months), by repeating next school year in Sept. and you can be done by 12:15 each day and have a month of summer vacation left (all of Aug.)
- Completion- 4 hours a day for 5 weeks plus homework
You cannot miss more than 3 classes or you will be dropped from the course.
Remedial only covers the main learning outcomes.
Completion is the entire course where each day in summer school covers a weeks curriculum (usually done during the regular school year).
