LCFEF SUMMER SCHOOL 2021 is complete

2022 Dates coming soon

Thank you for a successful inaugural 7th-8th Grade Summer!

Questions can be emailed to ssclerk@lcfef.org.
LCFEF Summer School is excited to introduce programs for 7th and 8th graders created in conjunction with LCUSD 7/8 administration. We are holding 2021 Summer School in person!

 

After providing a comprehensive summer school program for 9-12 students since 2011, LCFEF Summer School has been asked to provide course offerings to rising 7th and 8th grade students. This year’s pre-packaged offerings are intended to provide essential skills needed in 7th and 8th grade, especially in response to a year of online learning.

 

Our mission is to provide high quality, rigorous course offerings to allow students to improve their academic standing and enhance their academic program. We are hopeful that next summer we will be able to offer more variety in course offerings and scheduling.

 

The LCFEF Summer School  provides opportunities for students to work ahead, remediate a course, open time in the fall for an elective course, provide an opportunity to strengthen skills in a particular area or help make their workload during the regular school year more manageable. LCFEF Summer School is committed to providing the same rigorous, comprehensive curriculum of our in-class instruction that allows students to move seamlessly into the next sequential course.

 

Non LCUSD students are welcome; we do require approval of the course of choice by the home district prior to the start of summer school with the submission of a credit verification form.
