Summer Academies

Each year, District 401 offers summer classes for students who will be entering kindergarten through 12th grade.

For 2019 our K-7 Summer Academy is designed to provide students with opportunities to explore their learning through reading, math and enrichment programs.

Our EPHS Summer Academy gives Elmwood Park High School students the opportunity to earn credit toward graduation by taking courses from a rigorous online curriculum.

Please note: Although no classes will be offered for incoming 8th graders during the summer of 2019, we expect to resume 8th-grade summer classes in 2020.

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.

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

Classes begin in early June and conclude by mid-July or sooner.
