LCFEF Summer School is excited to provide programs for 7th and 8th graders again in 2022. These courses have been created in conjunction with LCHS 7/8 administration to provide programs that bridge learning gaps while introducing students to the big campus and allowing them to meet students from the other elementary programs in our area.

 

After providing a comprehensive summer school program for 9-12 students since 2011, LCFEF Summer School was asked to provide course offerings to rising 7th and 8th grade students in 2021. This year’s offerings are different than last summer. Students can take a full year of Spanish 1A OR one semester of two enrichment courses.

 

Our mission is to provide high quality, rigorous course offerings to allow students to improve their academic standing and enhance their academic program. The LCFEF Summer School  provides middle school students the opportunity to work ahead by taking Spanish 1A for credit. Alternately, we provide students with the opportunity to strengthen their skills in a particular area or to simply take some courses that enhance their organizational skills and creativity.

 

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

 

All students have the option of taking credit courses and not reporting the grade. The course then counts as exposure to material rather than obtaining credit for advancement purposes.
