Summer School registration is now open

Charles County Public Schools (CCPS) 2024 summer school program starts Tuesday, July 2. The schedule includes a mix of make-up and original credit courses. All make-up credit courses will be taught in person and original credit courses will be virtual through the Apex Learning and Zoom online platforms.

Costs for all summer school courses have been waived by CCPS this year and transportation will be provided. Students can take up to two make-up courses or one original credit course during summer school.

All courses run July 2 through Aug. 1, Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. A graduation ceremony for students completing high school credits in summer school will be Aug. 2.

Registration information

School-based counselors will work with parents and students to indicate summer school courses a student is eligible to take. An email from the school counselor will be sent to parents whose children are eligible for summer school with the recommended course.  Students can contact their school counselor with questions and/or course recommendations. Registration is not through Synergy (ParentVue) this year but through school counselors.  Click here for a list of school counselors. The registration process runs through Monday, June 10, and will close on Wednesday, June 19.
