Summer School Classes to Run June 16-July 26

As the school year is coming to a close, it is time for some students to begin considering summer school. NDA offers Physical Education I and II, Computer Applications and Algebra I and II classes over the summer.

It is $350 per course and each course is Monday-Thursday from June 16-July 26 with no classes the week of July 2-5. The student can attend a class from 8:15-11:30 and 12-3:15.

Students can enroll in summer school at any time, but we had encouraged enrollment before Friday, May 18,” said Michele Mollack.

For each class that the student takes he  will receive a half credit that is factored into his  GPA and counted towards graduation requirements.

If a student has more than two absences, his is dropped from the class and will not receive credit for it.

Even though it is held in the summer, students are still expected to comply with NDA behavior guidelines and behavioral infractions will be dealt with the same way they would be during the school year.

Physical Education I is held in the morning and Physical Education II is held in the afternoon, both instructed by Mr. Chris Nowak.

Computer Applications is held only on Monday afternoon in class, and the rest is completed by the student online. Mrs. Jennifer Laaksonen communicates with the students online throughout the rest of the week.

Algebra I is held in the morning and Algebra II is held in the afternoon with Mr. Brian Konshak. Students receive more individual attention and are able to strengthen their skills in mathematics.

In general, these courses are limited to NDA students and the core values are upheld all the way through summer.
