Summer School Courses

K12 gives students a great opportunity over the summer to catch up, get ahead, try a new language, or explore electives so that they can start the next school year strong.

K12 offers a variety of online high school courses specifically designed for the summer months. Most are full versions of K12 regular courses that are paced to be completed over a shorter, more intensive period of time.

Get on Track, Get Ahead, Get Inspired

  • Get back on track with credit recovery courses in key subjects. Designed for high school students who didn't pass a subject the first time, these courses use new approaches to teach "unlearned" concepts, letting students move past material they've already mastered. Most are ELL-supported.
  • Get prepared for the transition from middle to high school with summer immersion in areas such as Algebra I, American Literature, Biology, and more.
  • Get ahead in a core subject or a world language.
  • Get inspired with career-building electives or personal enrichment courses, including Computer Literacy, Web Design, and Skills for Health.
