K-7 Summer Academy at a Glance

Classes begin in early June and conclude in early July. 

In 2019, two main course tracks were available for students: Learning Academy courses, for which students had to meet District criteria and receive a teacher recommendation, and enrichment courses, which were open to all students. 

For detailed information about both course tracks, please visit our K-7 Summer Academy page.

EPHS Summer Academy at a Glance

Rising students in grades 9-12 can get ahead in their required classes or recover credits through the EPHS Summer Academy, which uses Apex Learning, an online educational platform.

Students work individually at their own pace, with teacher monitoring, frequent check-ins and instructional assistance as needed, all conducted by certified EPHS staff.

Classes begin in early June and conclude in early July.
