The APS Summer School program is designed to support and augment the instructional program of Arlington Public Schools. Each year it provides varied courses to approximately 6,500 students in pre-kindergarten through grade 12. The elementary strengthening program is designed specifically for those students who need additional time and exposure to grade level standards. Enrollment is by invitation only and is limited to students who have been identified as eligible to participate by their school principal. Elementary students also have the option to enroll in one or more enrichment programs. At the secondary level, strengthening programs enable students to retake courses they have failed and prepare to retake failed SOL assessments. In addition, enrichment courses are offered at the middle school level, and high school students may take classes as new work for credit, including a limited number of blended and virtual classes.
Registration opens March 7. Students should sign up at their home school and register for the same grade level that they are in during the 2018-19 school year.
