Free Summer School Offered to Both Current Phoenix Union Students and Incoming 9th Graders

Posted by Community Relations at 5/13/2015

Free summer School will be offered for both current Phoenix Union students and incoming 9th graders. Current students will have the opportunity to earn a half-credit or a full credit this year at 12 campuses. The schools will run two sessions, a morning session (8-11:45 a.m.) and an afternoon session (12:15-4 p.m.) Students can attend one session for a half credit or both sessions for one full credit. Most of the schools will hold classes May 26 through June 25, Monday through Thursday. Courses will vary by campus. Current students should see their counselor for recommendations.

The Freshman Academy for incoming ninth-graders has a new look this year. Introduction to High School is a half-credit session that integrates project-based MESA (math, engineering and science), AVID (a college-prep program emphasizing organization, note-taking, reading and writing) and Humanities. There will be other enrichment programs in art, band and academic decathlon at some locations.

Free transportation, breakfast and lunch are available for Freshman Academy and regular Summer School. Registration deadline is May 15. For more information, contact your counselor, visit www.phoenixunion.org/summerschool or call (602) 764-1307.
