Downingtown Area School District
Summer School Original Credit and Enrichment Program
Registration for original credit and encrichment courses for Summer 2019 is now closed. Registration for Summer 2020 will open here on April 6, 2020.
The Downingtown Area School District is offering a summer program that includes coursework for original credit and enrichment.
All courses are completely cyber, except for Lifelong Activities. The asynchronous cyber courses will either run in Schoology or in Edgenuity and will have weekly due dates.
Original Credit courses are courses that students are taking for the first time. The course is reported on the student’s official transcript and the grades are calculated into the student’s grade point average (GPA).
1-credit course: $375
.5 or .33 credit course: $225
Enrichment courses are non-credit classes taken for personal growth. Students can choose to take an enrichment course without the pressure of a grade in order to explore an area of interest. Enrichment courses are not reported on a student's transcript and are not factored into a student's GPA; however, students can certainly share these experiences with colleges and future employers in other ways.
Enrichment course: $225
Students will need their own device to access the Internet. Students who are planning to be without Internet access for a week or more (e.g. on vacation in the mountains) should wait and take the course during the school year.
Please note: Students should expect to spend a minimum of 12-15 hours per week on a .5 credit course and 25-30 hours per week on a 1-credit course. Summer school courses cover the same amount of material as the year-long course, so plan accordingly!
