Summer School 2017

Bellaire High School offers several summer school programs.  All programs are for current Bellaire High School students only or incoming BHS ninth graders for 2017-18.

·      Credit Recovery – Teacher led classes for students to recover credit for a class they failed during the regular school year.

·      Original Credit Classes – PE, Health, Pre-AP Geometry (fees apply, see individual descriptions below)

·      Newcomer LEP English and Pre-Algebra courses

·      Grad Lab Courses – for seniors only

 Original Credit PE and Health

·      Original Credit PE and Health will be offered to 2016-17 BHS students and incoming 9th graders who will be attending Bellaire during the 2017 – 18 school year. 

o   PE is offered as a teacher-led class in the gymnasium.

o   Original Credit Health is an online course through the Grad Lab APEX program.  Students MUST attend class at BHS each day until the course is completed.  If a student completes the course satisfactorily before June 29th, they do not need to attend the rest of summer school for that course.

·      Note that on-line core courses affect NCAA eligibility.

·      One class equals ½ credit, so in order to get a full PE credit a student must successfully complete 2 classes.

·      A refundable fee of $50 per class is required (cash only, paid to Ms. Littlejohn in the Main Office May 1 – 19).  The fee will be refunded upon successful completion of the course. 

·      Incoming 9th graders will receive the credits earned, but these classes taken before the 2017-18 regular school year will not count in their GPA.

Original Credit Pre-AP Geometry

·      Pre-AP Geometry – There is a different registration form (see your current year math teacher).  After the form is completed it must be returned to Mr. Thornhill in the library. This class is only for students who were at BHS during the 2016-17 school year.
