Summer School FAQs

Summer School for Credit Advancement is a great opportunity for HTHS students! Students may elect to take Health, Career Prep A or B, Spanish I, Spanish II, and/or Precalculus during the summer on ACCESS Distance Learining Platform. Students may also take Driver Education at HTHS with Coaches Bromley and Boyette.

During the school year, Health/Driver Education is taught in one semester. Some students find it helpful to take these courses during the summer to free up a period for an elective course during the regular school year.

(Please note: HTHS currently embeds Career Prep B into our general Economics course which students typically take their senior year. This WILL NOT apply to students who plan to take AP Economics. AP Economics students may take Career Prep B any semester Zero period online or during summer months.)

Students enrolled in ACCESS (Career Prep A, Career Prep B, Health, Spanish I, Spanish II and/or Precalculus) summer school course(s) MUST attend a Zoom meeting, as a representative from ACCESS/Virtual Learning will be present to discuss online learning requirements and answer general questions. Everyone MUST attend a ZOOM meeting, information is provided at the end of each ACCESS course information page linked below.

IMPORTANT: ACCESS students are required to complete an ACCESS Student Orientation at the beginning of the course. Google Chrome and Firefox browsers preferred.

2023 Credit Recovery Program Dates: June 5th through 30th

Monday, June 5th, 8am

Hewitt-Trussville High School, Husky Parkway Trussville, AL, USA

In accordance with the guidelines of the Alabama State Department of Education, Hewitt-Trussville High School will offer students who have received failing grades in courses that are required for graduation an opportunity to recover the lost credit through a standards-based approach that will target specific knowledge and skill deficits instead of requiring the student to repeat the entire course. The Summer School Credit Recovery Program will be operated under the guidelines established through the Alabama State Department of Education.

A tuition fee of $180 per course must be paid to participate in the program and will be nonrefundable should the student be dismissed from the program. If your student is eligible to attend, you will receive a letter by mail the first of June with more information. The letter will include online payment fee link, application, registration and agreement forms. Forms with payment are to be submitted on or by June 5th.
