MD Parent Overview Letter

Dear Parents of current Mater Dei students in grades 9-12,

 

We are excited for Summer 2018 and wanted to ensure that you are aware of the opportunities that Mater Dei’s Summer School offers your student(s).

 

Mater Dei’s Summer School offers FOUR types of opportunities:

  1. Recovering credits from any previous D or F grades
  2. Getting ahead in coursework
  3. Preparing for success in the next school year, for College Applications, and for Life after high school
  4. Exploring interests outside of the regular school year (we have Workshops in Biotechnology, Art, and Astronomy!)

Details below:

  1. If your student needs to recover credits due to earning any D or F grades, please register them for Credit Recovery You will find details and a list of our Credit Recovery courses here. Please check with your student’s Academic Counselor here at Mater Dei if you are unsure of which course(s) and semesters your student needs. Students can take up to 3 semesters in one Summer and each semester runs from June 18th-July 20th with July 4th as a holiday. Our preferred registration deadline is May 31st. We will make every effort to ensure that scheduling requests (e.g. specific periods) are accommodated if registration is completed by the preferred date. Late fees will apply starting June 17th.
