Student One Summer Classes

Original Credit Courses

These courses are available for students of any grade level seeking original credit. Each class meets for 2 hours per day for 4 weeks. Class availability depends on enrollment. Students not guaranteed time preference for period.

COMPUTER APPLICATIONS: The goal of this course is to introduce students to applications typically found in a school or business office. The course includes the use of the Microsoft Office Suite of applications and the Open Office Suite of applications. Students use word processing, graphic presentation, paint, spreadsheets and databases with each suite of applications. This course is open to all students.

COMPUTER PROGRAMMING: In this course, the Karel J Robot virtual environment is used to teach students programming fundamentals. Java programming is used to build a strong foundation in structured, object oriented programming. Efficient and organized problem solving and program design is emphasized.

High School Prep Courses

Required for selected incoming ninth grade students, these classes are optional for other students. These courses run 2 hours per day for 4 weeks. Class availability depends on enrollment. Students not guaranteed time preference for period. Students may only take a total of two classes per day.

HIGH SCHOOL PREP ENGLISH: This course is designed to prepare students for high school-level thinking, writing, and reading. Teachers focus on organizational skills, basic composition and grammer, reading comprehension and analytical skills.

HIGH SCHOOL PREP MATH: This course is designed to prepare students for high school algebra. Teachers focus on fundamentals, including basic equations, and mathematical thinking.

FRESHMAN GATEWAY SEMINAR: The transition to freshman year in high school can be a challenging time for most ninth grade students. Typically freshmen students enter high school with a varying degree of skills in reading, writing, and mathematics. Freshman Gateway Seminar’s main focus is designed to develop life-long learners, on purpose. Through support, mentoring, and clear expectations, the course teaches students to recognize accomplishments and understand how to correct problems. Freshman Seminar is designed to explicitly teach students fundamental learning skills including note taking, study skills, test-taking strategies and thinking skills such as evaluating, making inferences, and drawing conclusions. The course will focus on general literacy skills in reading, writing, and mathematics. Literacy enables students to reach goals, develop greater depths of knowledge, and participate fully in the school community. The overall goal is to develop success skills in all of our students!
