Summer School

The Downingtown Area School District offers two options for summer school through the Downingtown Cyber Academy: recovery and original credit. 
 

Recovery Credit 

The Downingtown Area School District offers a recovery credit program that includes coursework for a previously failed high school course. Recovery credit courses are reported on the official transcript and the grades are calculated into the student’s grade point average (GPA). Courses are aligned to the DASD curriculum and PA Core Standards.
 
Important Dates for Summer 2024
April 8 - June 14: Registration open for recovery credit summer school courses
June 18: Final day to pay for recovery credit summer school course in PaySchools
June 24 - July 18: Recovery credit summer school session
 
Recovery credit courses are self-paced in Schoology over the four week period. A PA-certified teacher will be available in person and via Zoom to offer tutoring assistance. 
 
High school recovery credit courses will be offered at Downingtown Middle School (due to high school construction projects) from June 24-July 18 from 9:00 - 11:00 am Monday-Thursday. (No class on July 4th.) Students who cannot attend in-person during this time can also connect with their teachers via Zoom. Both in-person attendance and Zoom attendance are optional. 
 
Courses cost $150. 
 

Original Credit 

The Downingtown Area School District offers an original credit program that includes accelerated coursework for several high school courses. These courses cover the same amount of material that students receive over the course of the school year. Original credit courses are reported on the official transcript and the grades are calculated into the student’s grade point average (GPA).
