2022 Summer Academy

Waterford Unified School District is offering two summer school programs this summer. Priority enrollment will be given to low-income students, English Learners, Foster Youth, and Homeless.

The first is a four week Summer STEAM in Motion Academy. TK - 7th grade students experience a focus on fun and engaging learning through Science, Technology, English, Arts, and Math (STEAM).

Students from TK-6th grade may also sign up for the Expanded Learning Program option, which continues the fun and learning from 12:30-2pm.

The second is a six week 8th-12th grade program for students wanting to advance or remediate. Among the courses offered at WHS Summer Academy will be the following: the freshman core classes, including health; College, Career and Financials for 9th grade; physical education for 10-11th grade; and credit recovery for 7-11th grades. Students must be referred and enrolled by their guidance counselor for the 7th-12th grade summer academy. The extra instruction that students receive during the summer program will help to fill gaps in learning, reinforce important skills, and better prepare them for the next school year.

Attendance on the first day is required to ensure your place in class. The size of this year's student enrollment in summer school is expected to be sizeable, therefore, space is limited and students who have enrolled in this program but do not attend the first day will be dropped and placed on a waiting list for available space. It is important that your child appear on the first day of summer school to ensure his or her placement.

The time for Saturday School is from 8:00 a.m. to 1:20 p.m. Do not be late. The classroom is to be determined and a letter will be sent home prior to the Saturday School.
