High School Summer Experience

  • Summer Experience

    Our 2023 Summer Experience is an opportunity for students in grades 9 - 12 to participate in credit advancement or credit recovery. For the first time, Summer Experience will be offered at all CCS high schools with virtual APEX courses (all schools) or face-to-face classes (offered at select schools). We believe this will allow students who may have previously struggled to gain a stronger foundation and decrease the number of students who are off-track for graduation. 


    In addition to their focus on core academics, high schoolers can work side-by-side at Spruce Run with teachers, scientists, environmentalists, and other special guests to learn about nature and animals and plant life thriving in their different habitats. Students will also engage in project-based learning in their outdoor classroom settings and earn credits toward graduation.
