  • What will Intramurals include?

TBA--Based on student interest.  

  • Is there a cost?

No, this is absolutely FREE!

  • What is credit recovery? What courses can be recovered? Why is this a focus?

Credit recovery is a chance for those students who may have not done well in the past to make up credits during the summer by using the Apex Learning system. All core courses and some elective courses will be made available. This is a focus so that students who may have fallen behind may have the opportunity to graduate on time with their cohort.

  • What is EOC/bridge learning gaps? Why is this a focus?

Students who are about to go into a course that has a state required End of Course test(Biology I, English II, Math 1, Math 3) may benefit from using the Summer Learning Program to help them get ready for the upcoming course and final exam.  

  • What is  the ACT? Why is preparation a focus?

The ACT is a college readiness assessment. It is a standardized test for high school achievement and college admissions. Rising juniors will take the ACT during the school day in the coming year. The state of NC pays for every student to take in their Junior year. The ACT is a college entrance exam and students can use their score on college applications for their senior year (and for summer programs next summer). The ACT consists of four (sometimes five) components: English, Mathematics, Reading, Science and sometimes Writing. This is a focus as the ACT results are a portion of the school’s accountability for success.

  • What is WorkKeys? Why is preparation a focus?

The ACT WorkKeys assessments are the cornerstone of the ACT workforce solutions. The assessments help measure workplace skills that can affect job performance. Unlike other assessments, they don’t simply give an indication of reading and writing competency. Instead, they measure a range of hard and soft skills relevant to any occupation, at any level, and across industries. Successful completion of assessments can lead to a credential that verifies foundational workplace skills. There are three components that are tested: Applied Math, Graphic Literacy, and Workplace Documents. This is a focus as the WorkKeys results are a portion of the school’s accountability for success.
