Summer School

General Information

Monticello High School will offer a summer learning academy for credit recovery and enrichment each summer. A grab and go breakfast will be offered at 9 a.m.; lunch begins at 11 a.m. Transportation is also available for students.  A bus schedule will be posted on the website each year prior to the start of summer school.

Instruction is designed to provide students with additional time and support to gain the course credits needed for graduation as well as provide students with opportunities to study courses beyond what is offered at MHS. Instruction will be blended with utilization of an online program called Edmentum as well as differentiated material provided by the content specialist teacher.

Class will not be in session on Fridays.
