Instead of Taking a Class

As college admissions becomes increasingly competitive, many selective colleges are looking beyond academics to determine admission. If you are already a strong student, consider doing something other than studying this summer to show personal growth and involvement. If you don't believe us, check out this article by Peterson's.

FUHSD Summer Academy 2017

The Fremont Union High School District offers a limited summer program prioritizing students who have earned a F in a class required for graduation. Offerings in Biology, Algebra 1, Geometry, English, World History, US History, Government, and Economics are filled first by students who have not passed the course. Students who have earned a D in any of these courses, and wish to make them up to be college eligible, are placed as space is available. Summer Academy sign-ups typically begin in January.

-- Students should contact their counselor to register by May

Options Outside of FUHSD to make-up courses/grades

For options beyond the FUHSD Program, the LHS Guidance Team researches some local opportunities at Private High Schools, Online Summer Programs, and Community Colleges to find affordable opportunities to make-up grades.

Keep in mind that for graduation purposes, a "D" grade is considered passing, but 4-year colleges may not accept a "D" grade as passing credit, especially not in required courses. Visit http://admission.universityofcalifornia.edu/freshman/requirements/a-g-requirements/ to clarify admission requirements to the University of California (requirements the same for the California State University system.)

  1. Meet with your counselor to discuss program and goals
  2. Review the SUMMER OPTIONS to MAKE UP CREDITS OR D GRADES.
  3. It is often difficult to find exact equivalents for AP and honors courses during the summer session and some times, it may not be possible to find a course.
  4. After selecting a program, submit a Request for Credit Form to the LHS Main Office and await approval.

Course Advancement/Enrichment

In some cases, students would like to take summer classes to get ahead in curriculum or to help balance the workload for the following year. In order to request credits on the LHS transcript, students must submit a 'Request for Credit' form (linked above) and await approval prior to registering for the course.

Students who wish to take courses for fun or personal growth are welcome to do so, however, many of these courses do NOT transfer to the LHS transcript.

THE REQUEST FOR CREDIT FORM TO TAKE COURSES FOR ENRICHMENT OR TO GET AHEAD IN SUBJECTS IS DUE TO THE LHS MAIN OFFICE BY FRIDAY, APRIL 21, 2017.
