St. Rita Summer School 2013
Session I: June 17th – June 28th
Session II: July 8th – July 20th
Most subjects taught at St. Rita during the regular school year are taught in the Summer School if there is a formative group of students needing the subject. All underclassmen must make up their failures at St. Rita during the Summer School. In the event that there is not a formative group of students needing a particular subject, the school reserves the right to recommend and approve another school where that particular failure may be corrected. Students who fail a required course in their senior year generally do not attend the summer school at St. Rita. Alternative summer school sites will be recommended and approved by the Administration.
All students are reminded that any and all failed classes must be remediated.
Parents will be contacted (via mail) by the end of the first week of June if your son will be required to attend Summer School. Attendance at the Summer School is determined by semester grades only.
There are two Summer School sessions. The first session for 2013 begins June 17th and concludes June 28th. The second session begins July 8th and concludes July 19th. The last day for Summer School registration is Thursday, June 13th.
It cannot be presumed that a student who fails a class in the first semester will attend the first session of the summer school. This same fact applies to a student who fails a class in the second semester. Students are placed in the Summer School classes by the director of the Summer School in a way that accommodates each student’s need as much as possible. It is important that every student remains on track for graduation. Students cannot decide themselves which session they wish to attend. Unfortunately, summer vacations and other summer activities must be scheduled around the Summer School.
Summer School classes are 3 hours in length. The morning class begins at 8:00 am and ends at 11:00 am. The afternoon class begins at 11:30 am and ends at 2:30 pm. A student can generally make up a maximum of four classes during the Summer School.
The McCarthy Center will be open during the summer so that the students can buy something to eat if they wish. Of course, students may also bring something with them to eat during the break.
There is no school provided transportation during the summer.
The fee for each class is $225.00 plus the cost of any books that may be required for the Summer School classes. Some of the Summer School classes use the same book that the students used during the regular course of the year while some of the other Summer School courses require a book that must be purchased at registration. Books purchased at registration will be distributed on the first day of class. It is important that students do not sell their textbooks until they know whether or not they will need them for any summer courses. State books should be returned to the teacher at the end of the regular school year as usual; they may be reissued during the summer if necessary.
The Refresher classes in Math, Reading, and English for incoming students are scheduled during the same 2 summer sessions. The Refresher classes, however, only meet during the early morning time period and also only meet for 1.5 hours per class. Refresher classes meet from 8:00 am – 9:20 am and/or from 9:30 am – 11:00 am. The fee for Refresher classes is $150.00 per each subject area class. Incoming students are required to take Refresher classes based upon their entrance exam scores and in consultation with the sending school. Sports camps and other summer activities must be worked around the summer school schedule. Admission to St. Rita for students required to take Refresher classes is contingent upon the successful completion of the Refresher classes.
All questions regarding the Summer School can be answered by Mr. Benak, Director of the Summer School. You can contact Mr. Benak at email@example.com, or by calling the school at 773-925-6600, Ext. 6647.
