APS Summer Academy High School

Target 2021 Summer Academy Support

Attention Target 2021 Students and Parents!!!

Have you signed up for the APS Summer Academy? The Office of High Schools strongly encourages Summer Academy participation for students who fail a course during the school year. Recovering courses during the summer provides the best opportunity to stay on track in earning credits for graduation and allows flexibility and choice in course selection during the school year. High School Summer Academy will be offered for Atlanta Public Schools students who need to recover credits for courses they failed during the school year. Summer Academy is offered June 1 -30, 2016. Classes will be taught by highly qualified Atlanta Public Schools teachers and will be held Monday through Thursday from 8:30 am – 2:30 pm.

Current 8th/rising 9th graders will attend Summer Academy at their feeder high school site. For more information about the High School Summer Academy program, please contact the APS Office of High Schools.
