Make the most of an uncertain summer - accelerate your academic plan by PREParing for the fall semester, taking one of your core credits, or exploring your creativity with one of the several elective offerings. Experience all that Prep has to offer academically and artistically with gifted teachers who have led the way these past seven weeks with dynamic, interactive remote learning.
For Summer School 2020, students in grades six through twelve will be able to take classes that will be a mix of learning environments–from remote learning to in-person classroom experiences–this hybrid mix is bringing together the best tools in the educational toolbox and experienced, gifted teachers. Students will be engaged with amazing Prep faculty who will guide, teach, and prepare them for the next level of learning. We’ve opened up many of our classes to students from other schools...not just to traditionally enrolled Prep students.

For current Jackson Prep students, all new credit work must be earned through Jackson Prep. Repeat credits are limited to three credits earned off-campus toward graduation. No more than two repeat credits may be earned in any one summer. Off-campus coursework must be approved by the Head of the Senior High. Students who fail a course must see their counselor to sign up for remediation or credit recovery.

In light of the recent disruption to the 2020 school year, Jackson Prep is offering a targeted approach to preparing students for the fall semester.

Students will work with teachers in math, grammar, composition, and reading comprehension in a non-credit course to ensure that your child has the content and skills necessary to seamlessly progress to the next grade level no matter what school they are attending in the Fall. 

PREParing courses are available for rising 6th, 7th, 8th, and 9th graders.

Classes may be remote, in person, or in some hybrid form; therefore, a computer with a camera, microphone, and internet access is required for all classes.

Frequently Asked Question
If I am enrolled in another school, how can I make sure these credits transfer to my junior high/high school? 
When a student is accepted for summer school at Prep, an Approval to Earn Credit form will be emailed along with the contract. Students should take this form to their current school administrator for approval to ensure the credit will transfer. 

Will I be required to attend any classes on campus for Summer 2020?
Classes may be remote, in person, or in some hybrid form. We continue to monitor the recommendations of our state and local governments and make our plans accordingly. If we are able to meet in person, students will still have the ability to join the class meeting via remote access if they are unable to come to campus. 

Will uniforms be required for remote learning?
APPROPRIATE for REMOTE LEARNING (on camera): While broadcasting remotely, the dress code is as follows: no alcohol, bars, innuendos, or inappropriate words on shirts. No boys in sleeveless shirts or without shirts. For girls, no tube tops, spaghetti straps, bathing suits, or tank-tops. No midriffs showing.

How many courses can I take at a time?
