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.
Options Outside of FUHSD
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.

- Meet with your counselor to discuss program and goals
- Review the SUMMER OPTIONS to MAKE UP CREDITS OR D GRADES.
- 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.
- After selecting a program, submit a Request for Credit Form to the LHS Main Office and await approval.
