An LCFEF Summer School course is comprised of one full year of academic learning presented over a five-week, five-hour per day session. Classes move quickly and students are generally best served by taking classes in subject areas where they are academically strong. Students who are remediating a class will have an advantage in that they will be “reviewing” material already learned. Because of the intensive nature of the coursework, students must expect to spend considerable out-of-class time doing homework in order to succeed. For that reason, no more than three (3) absences will be allowed; otherwise credit for a full-year class will not be earned. More detail about absences is provided in our policies under Attendance. LCFEF Summer School curriculum is based upon LCHS regular school year programs, uses the same textbook and materials, and utilizes a similar instructional time and homework load as LCHS as well. The intimate size of the program permits daily observation of each and every class by summer school principals as well as regular feedback from principals to teachers and from teachers to parents.
LCFEF Summer School students have access to the LCHS Information Resource Center, computer facilities and science labs. Daily food service is arranged through local restaurants and caterers at a reasonable cost to students.
Admission to summer school is by application, and enrollment is on a first-come, first-served basis. Placement in classes with multiple sections is assigned on a random basis.
If student has an IEP or a 504 plan set up by a state of California school district, he/she can enroll in Summer School. A copy of the IEP or 504 plan must be provided to the La Cañada Flintridge Educational Foundation Summer School so that we may determine if we can accommodate the student’s needs in our Summer School program. Registration is provisional until the LCFEF Summer School Committee has made this determination.
We are optimistic about holding 2021 Summer School in person but final determination will be made in Spring. If we are to hold summer school virtually, it will be our second summer doing so and our teachers, staff and administrators are well prepared.
