Summer School 2022

June 16th through July 15th

School Holiday – July 4th



7th & 8th Grade Summer School

The La Cañada Flintridge Educational Foundation Summer School Board of Directors is excited to announce the 2021 LCFEF 7/8 Summer School Program. This summer, we have structured the program to be an academic support program in response to a year of online learning. Click here for more information.


The primary purpose of the LCFEF Summer School is to provide a high quality, rigorous 9-12 selection of course offerings to allow students to improve their academic standing (remedial students) as well as allow other students to accelerate and enhance their academic program.


The La Cañada Flintridge Educational Foundation (LCFEF) offers a comprehensive, five-week summer school program in support of the La Cañada Unified School District, the community of La Cañada Flintridge and students in the surrounding communities. Enrollment is open to LCUSD and non-LCUSD high school students. LCFEF Summer School 2021 will be offered at La Cañada High School (LCHS) to students entering 7th – 12th grade. Summer school dates are June 16 – July 15.  In observation of the holiday, classes will not be held on Monday, July 4.


Core academic offerings are designed to allow students to work ahead,  freeing up their school-year schedule so that they can pursue electives or specialty classes. Students also are able to enroll in classes in order to remediate a D or an F grade. Courses offered meet the A-G college admission requirements as well as meet or exceed the academic rigor of California State, La Cañada Unified and University of California standards. Coursework fully prepares students to succeed in sequential classes in same and related subjects offered during the following school year.

Course Pace/Content/Approach:

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.

Other Resources:

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.
