DVHS's Online Summer School Program is designed for students to complete the equivalent of one semester course credit. The program traditionally provides students an opportunity to earn original credit or to replace a failing grade. For the 2021 summer school session, students who attended DVS full-time in school year (SY) 2020-21 with 5 or fewer classes will be allowed to take up to two semester credits (equaling 1 full credit) in summer school. Some limitations apply. Please read below for more information.
Summer School 2021 will run from June 18 - July 29.
The registration period generally runs from April to mid-June prior to the beginning of the online summer school classes.
Students generally enroll in only one semester course during the summer program. For the 2021 summer school session, students who attended DVS full-time in SY 2020-21 with 5 or fewer classes will be allowed to take up to two semester credits (equaling 1 full credit) in summer school. Full year courses cannot be enrolled concurrently. Final course offerings and student enrollments will be subject to minimum course enrollments and course and staff availability.
Please download the course offerings for the DVHS Summer School Program 2021.
Summer school courses compress eighteen weeks of work into the six week summer session. Three days of material are covered in a single four hour session. Missing one week of classwork (five days) is the equivalent of missing three weeks (fifteen days). Each course includes an assignment schedule with required due dates: tests and exams cannot be opened early. If you are planning on being absent for any time this summer, for example, for a family vacation or a camp, please contact our administration at DVHS.firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 703-630-1990 before beginning the class. We are located on MCB Quantico in Virginia in the EDT time zone.
Because students will be participating in the DVHS Online Summer School Program away from the local school environment, students must have access to a computer at home or another location with a stable internet connection for the entire length of the program. Students should also plan to devote, at a minimum, two to four hours each day per course (Monday-Friday) throughout the term. This dedicated time is necessary to allow students to be fully engaged in learning activities, submit assignments, and complete coursework.
Requests for withdrawal from a summer school course must be submitted to the summer school email address provided on the student's (DVHS.email@example.com) enrollment letter within five days of the start of the course.
