Enrollment in summer courses for credit will be done as part of the course scheduling process for next year. Grades 9-11 will be given the opportunity to request summer courses shortly after Spring Break. Students in 8th grade will be given the same opportunity when their course scheduling process takes place in early April.

Please contact Emmett Carlson, Upper School Coordinator of Special Projects and Math Teacher, with questions.

St. Catherine's students interested in taking a for-credit summer course at St. Christopher's please email Emmett Carlson, Upper School Coordinator of Special Projects and Math Teacher.

Summer Academics Guidelines for St. Christopher’s Students

St. Christopher’s offers summer Upper School classes to help students manage the scheduling of their academic course load.  Priority will be given to St. Christopher’s students whose scheduling needs create conflicts for taking required courses during the regular school year; whose course load would otherwise leave them with no free periods during the regular school year; or who are attempting to advance a level in an academic discipline (where available and approved).  Summer classes are neither required nor guaranteed.  

  1. Summer courses are conducted according to the same academic standards as courses during the regular school year. Grades will appear on a student’s transcript.

  1. Students enrolled in summer courses are subject to the Honor Code. 

  1. Enrollment in summer courses should take place as part of the course scheduling process for the following school year and should fit appropriately into a student’s overall academic plan.

  1. A student may enroll in a maximum of two summer courses in a single summer. Those students that request two courses will be asked to provide a brief explanation of why they are doing so with respect to their overall academic plan. This option should generally be reserved for students taking more than five full-year courses during the following school year.

  1. Students may not take both health courses (Health-9 and Health-10) or both Religion courses (Biblical Studies and Intro to Moral Philosophy) within the same summer.

  1. With the exception of Health-9, rising 9th graders are not eligible for summer courses.

  1. Students are strongly encouraged to take at least one religion course during the regular school year while in upper school. While unique situations may arise, it is generally not recommended that students fulfill their graduation requirement in Religion by taking summer courses exclusively. 

  1. Enrollment in Geometry requires the permission of the Upper School Math Department Chair. Students must earn a B or higher to proceed to Honors Precalculus in the fall.
