2022 Dates Coming Soon

Questions can be emailed to ssclerk@lcfef.org. 

 

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.

 

All courses will be accepted by La Cañada High School, are UC A-G accepted and will have full WASC accreditation. 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.

The primary purpose of the LCFEF Summer School is to provide a high quality, rigorous 9-12 selection of course offerings to allow students to improve their academic standing (remedial students) as well as allow other students to accelerate and enhance their academic program.

 

The La Cañada Flintridge Educational Foundation (LCFEF) offers a comprehensive, five-week summer school program in support of the La Cañada Unified School District, the community of La Cañada Flintridge and students in the surrounding communities. Enrollment is open to LCUSD and non-LCUSD high school students. LCFEF Summer School 2020 will be offered at La Cañada High School (LCHS) to students entering 9th – 12th grade. Summer school dates are June 15 – July 16.  In observation of the holiday, classes will not be held on July 5.

Core academic offerings are designed to allow students to work ahead,  freeing up their school-year schedule so that they can pursue electives or specialty classes. Students also are able to enroll in classes in order to remediate a D or an F grade. Courses offered meet the A-G college admission requirements as well as meet or exceed the academic rigor of California State, La Cañada Unified and University of California standards. Coursework fully prepares students to succeed in sequential classes in same and related subjects offered during the following school year.

COURSE PACE/CONTENT/APPROACH:

An LCFEF Summer School course is comprised of one full year of academic learning presented over a five-week, five-hour per day session. Classes move quickly and students are generally best served by taking classes in subject areas where they are academically strong. Students who are remediating a class will have an advantage in that they will be “reviewing” material already learned. Because of the intensive nature of the coursework, students must expect to spend considerable out-of-class time doing homework in order to succeed. For that reason, no more than three (3) absences will be allowed; otherwise credit for a full-year class will not be earned. More detail about absences is provided in our policies under Attendance. LCFEF Summer School curriculum is based upon LCHS regular school year programs, uses the same textbook and materials, and utilizes a similar instructional time and homework load as LCHS as well. The intimate size of the program permits daily observation of each and every class by summer school principals as well as regular feedback from principals to teachers and from teachers to parents.

 

OTHER RESOURCES:

LCFEF Summer School students have access to the LCHS Information Resource Center, computer facilities and science labs. Daily food service is arranged through local restaurants and caterers at a reasonable cost to students.

 

ADMISSION/REGISTRATION:

Admission to summer school is by application, and enrollment is on a first-come, first-served basis. Enrollment forms may be mailed in, walked in, or submitted online.  Placement in classes with multiple sections is assigned on a random basis.

 

If student has an IEP or a 504 plan set up by a state of California school district, he/she can enroll in Summer School. A copy of the IEP or 504 plan must be provided to the La Cañada Flintridge Educational Foundation Summer School so that we may determine if we can accommodate the student’s needs in our Summer School program. Registration is provisional until the LCFEF Summer School Committee has made this determination.
