EPHS Summer Academy


Elmwood Park High School students can earn credit toward graduation during the summer. Students can get ahead in their required classes or recover credits through APEX, an online learning platform.

Using APEX, students work individually, with teacher monitoring, frequent check-ins and instructional assistance as needed, all conducted by certified EPHS staff.
