Notre Dame Preparatory
2022 Summer School Information
Summer School is an extension of the school’s regular academic program designed to provide students with opportunities to gain academic credit, receive enrichment or remediation, and explore new interests. Incoming freshmen are strongly encouraged to consider enrolling in summer school as it facilitates the adjustment and transition to high school. Summer school runs from May 31 - June 29. The majority of our summer staff members are selected from our talented Notre Dame Preparatory teachers. Students are held to the same rigorous academic standards at Summer School as they are during the regular school year. Courses taken for credit meet all the standards necessary to meet graduation requirements.
Tuition for summer enrichment courses is $300, .5 credit courses are $500 and 1.0 credit courses are $800. Refunds are not given for cancellations after May 31, 2022.
All fees will be refunded if a course is cancelled due to insufficient enrollment. Summer school is self-supporting. Courses will be offered only if a sufficient number of students register. No refunds will be issued after the summer semester begins.
All courses will be delivered in person. There will be no online learning this summer. All courses listed as summer school offerings require a sufficient number of student registrants to run. If there is not sufficient interest in a particular course, it will not be provided during summer school.
EXPECTATIONS FOR STUDY:
Approximately one week’s study in the regular school year is covered each day of summer school, requiring a considerable amount of study at home each day. Work missed due to absence must be made up within three school days after returning to school.
Arizona State Law and the NDP Student/Parent Handbook requires that students are present for 90% of the course to receive credit. For year-long courses, students may miss no more than two class days (or a total of 11 hours) to earn credit. For semester-long courses, students may miss no more than one class day (or a total of 5.5 hours) to earn credit. Due to the short and intensive nature of the summer term, class attendance is absolutely critical, so please schedule doctor’s appointments/family gatherings/ vacations outside of the summer school session.
RULES AND GUIDELINES:
All rules and guidelines as listed in the Notre Dame Preparatory Parent/Student Handbook and Program of Studies will be followed. Classroom rules regarding student conduct will be established by the teacher. Students removed from class as a consequence for misbehavior will be charged with an absence and may be withdrawn from the summer session.
FINAL EXAMS AND GRADING:
Final course grades will be determined by assigning twenty percent to the final examination and eighty percent to all course work. Attendance is mandatory on the last day of each semester, as final exams are scheduled for that day. Final exams will not be given early. If a student is absent from the final exam in a course, a grade of “F” will be recorded for the exam and averaged into the student’s grade for the course.
