For-Credit Summer Academic Programs

The 21st century student is a year-long learner and not every class is best suited for online or distance learning. By being an active member in one of our classrooms, students can get caught up or get further along the college path with for-credit academic courses, offered for students in grades 8 through 12. We blend the best of a traditional classroom with the exciting frontier of directed, online educational resources. All of our classes are taught by Grauer teachers, with low teacher-student ratios for the summer student who needs extra support. Courses meet UC standards and are approved by WASC. We hold students accountable to the same standards as we do during our normal academic year, so students are expected to demonstrate resourcefulness and self-advocacy.

Our summer school classes are open to current Grauer students, as well as students who are not attending The Grauer School (with a $75 non-refundable enrollment fee). Classes are limited to 9 students, so it is important to enroll early. Classes with less than 3 students enrolled will not be offered. A fee of $200 will be added to each semester of any class being taken for Honors credit.

Biology Course

The Grauer School specializes in Biology and Life Sciences. High school students can join us to earn academic credit for Biology this summer! Biology is a college preparatory course that includes the nature of science as applied to living organisms. The focus is on the diversity and interdependence of organisms as applied to biological systems, genetics, evolution, ecology and physiological processes. Lab skills will be emphasized and field activities will be included. The course is aligned to the State Standards for Science and meets the UC/CSU “d” Science requirement.

Prerequisites

Students applying to take a full year of any course for the first time, or any honors-level course, must have a B- or better in both of the past two semesters of that subject area. A copy of the student’s last two semester report cards must be turned in with the summer school application. Be advised that attending two summer semesters (earning a year’s credit) is extremely demanding, for while it does not match the enrichment of the course that is offered during the school year, the rigor remains the same.

Transfer Credit

Grauer School units are accredited by WASC. Units are only guaranteed if the student has permission in advance from his/her school guidance office to take the course. Acquiring permission is not the responsibility of The Grauer School or any of its representatives. Be mindful when registering, as each school or district has its own transfer credit policy and there may be a cap on transferable units. Transcripts will be mailed to your school one week after completion of course(s). Extra copies of transcripts cost $20 each.

For-Credit Academic Program Enrollment

A non-refundable registration fee of $75 is required to reserve your space in all for-credit academic classes for students who do not attend The Grauer School. Please fill out a separate application form and medical form for each student enrolling in the program.
