Middle school classes are available to students entering 7th or 8th grade in the following school year. Depending on the course, there may be prerequisites for enrollment.

Why is there a materials fee for some classes?

If a student has an IEP or a 504 plan, can he/she enroll in Summer School?

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 may be provided to the La Cañada Flintridge Educational Foundation. We will determine on a case by case basis 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.

How does a student register for Summer School?

Summer School registration may be completed online or by mailing completed forms and a check to the LCFEF Office (4490 Cornishon Avenue, Room 211, La Canada, CA 91011).

All forms must be completed including those that require both the parent and student signature before a student can be registered. Courses will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. In the event that multiple sections are offered, students will be assigned randomly to a section.  Classes which meet full capacity will become wait list only and will be posted on the website; we encourage families to complete the application process as soon as they can.  Classes which do not meet the required minimum enrollment will be canceled at the discretion of the LCFEF Summer School Board.  Parents of the students enrolled in those classes will be notified by mid May.

When can a student register for Summer School?

Registration for 2022 will open in Spring.  All fees for LCFEF classes must be paid in full at the time of registration. Please consult our refund policy prior to making payment.

When will a student receive a Summer School class schedule?

Room and teacher assignments will be e-mailed the week prior to the start date of Summer School.

Where can a student find his/her student ID#?

The student’s LCHS ID# can be found on his/her student ID card or by asking the counseling office. For out of district students, ID#s are not required.

Is there registration on the first day of Summer School?

There will be a late registration fee of $100 beginning June 7, 2022. Students may register in person only on the first day of summer school at La Cañada High School. Please note that BOTH the student and the parent must be present for this registration. At this time, students may register for any open seats left in Summer School. Except in an emergency, it is NOT advisable to wait for this registration.

What is the LCFEF Refund Policy?

Tuition minus a $100.00 handling fee, will be returned for any reason, providing the request is made prior to 5:00 pm on, May 13, 2022. Requests may be made via email to sscoordinator@lcfef.org.

The LCFEF Board of Directors will consider a 50% refund (minus a $100.00 handling fee) for a verified death in the family, or a verified student illness or injury (doctor’s note required) which precludes a student from attending or continuing Summer School, providing the request is made prior to the first day of Summer School.


What is the attendance policy for Summer School?

There are no excused absences in Summer School. When enrolled in a full year course, students are not allowed more than three (3) days of absence and no more than two (2) days  in any one semester. For semester classes students are not allowed more than one and a half days (1.5) of absence in each  semester. Students who exceed these absences will be dropped from the class.

Two tardies constitute one half-day absence. If a student is not in their seat when the bell rings, the student will be considered tardy. It is possible to receive more than one tardy per day (at the beginning of school and/or after breaks). If a student is more than fifteen (15) minutes late to class, the student will be considered absent one half-day.
