ConVal Summer Academy Offers Enrichment Courses

Registration is now open for the 2018 Summer Academy which will be held July 9 – August 2, 2018.

The Academy is a great way to extend student learning through the summer to prevent the usual “summer slide” — the traditional loss of academic skills and knowledge over the course of the summer holidays. Taking ConVal Summer Academy courses also helps to get requirements and electives out of the way so that your student’s class schedule can remain flexible and open to opportunities during the regular school year.

The Academy offers participation in a musical drama production, art instruction in ceramics, metalsmithing and jewelry making, a class on history through graphic novels, and a course in forensic science, just to mention some of the most popular selections.

In addition, the Academy offers credit recovery and readiness courses in Mathematics as well as regular courses (e.g. American Government, American Economics) that can be accomplished on a concentrated time schedule.

Attendance in the Summer Academy is free for students of the ConVal School District, including incoming freshmen. All that is required is a $50 deposit for attending a class, a fee that is refunded upon completion of the course.

New this year, there are two day-long workshops organized by the New Hampshire Higher Education Assistance Foundation (NHHEAF), one specializing in the college admissions process, the other concentrating on the college admissions essay.
