Summer School Opportunities
Students will have several opportunities to earn or regain credit with the Helena schools this summer. Online courses are available for students interested in enrolling in a new course that they have not previously attempted. In addition, both online and classroom experiences are available for students who need to regain credit in classes that they have attempted and failed.
For original credit, the following option is available:
- Montana Digital Academy- Students enroll through the counseling office and are assigned a password to access and complete their coursework independently. Two sessions will be available: June 15-July 20, and July 21- August 19. This is an intense course of study designed to take at least 3 hours per day per class. The maximum number of online credits that may count toward graduation are 2.5. Deadline to enroll is June 3rd.
There are two options available for students who have failed a class and need to regain the credit.
- Traditional summer school: Classes will be held June 22-July 21 for core subjects: English, Math, Science, and History. Each class will meet for two hours a day, five days per week. Attendance is mandatory. The cost is $90 per class unless students qualify for free or reduced lunch. Please obtain a registration form from the counseling center. Registration link found below.
- Online credit recovery- Students will be assigned a password to log on to their course of study and complete the work. Students must be self-disciplined. Estimated time to complete courses is between 20 and 60 hours. All coursework must be completed by August 12. Attendance at the school computer lab is mandatory. Registration requires two parts: 1) online registration for payment and 2) course registration through the HHS Counseling center. Deadline to register is June 10.
Information on available courses and registration procedures can be found on the HHS counseling homepage, or by calling the office at 324-2220.
