High School Summer Program

The primary goal of the Summer High School Program is to offer Albemarle County Public Schools students the chance to retake a course where they would like to improve their knowledge, skills, and understandings that were not developed during the regular school year.  Additionally, there is the opportunity to earn new credit in Health, PE, and Economics and Personal Finance.
