KENT COUNTY — There's a summer school program open to high school students in Kent County for absolutely no charge.
Whether your students are trying to get ahead or have fallen behind a bit due to the pandemic.
They can take high school courses and get credit through Kent ISD's MySchool@Kent, which is always offered, but this summer the courses are free.
There are lots of subjects to choose from like Math, English, Science, and World Languages to name a few.
The courses are taken online including most tests, but the finals must be completed on the East Beltline campus. Eighth graders who want to get a jump on their high school core classes are welcome to join as well.
"It really is for anybody I would say the majority of our students in the past that have signed up for summer school are students that are very busy in high school, and may not have room in their schedule for health or government or Econ, and want to get that credit, out of the way, in the summer, said Principal Danielle Hendry. By doing so, they print their schedule so they can participate in both band and orchestra, or drama or art or some of those other things that they're really passionate about."
Also new this year for the summer school program, the students will be curbside testing.
Students who take classes at MySchool@Kent will also have access to Mental Health services if they need it.
Students need to register by June 15.
