Absences & Scheduling Requests

All Summer School courses run Monday June 21st- Friday July 23rd. 
Monday, July 5th is a Summer School holiday.
 
Major scheduling conflicts?
 
Most of our courses will run fully online. Required course meetings, live instruction, and assessments would take place within the posted course times. Please email the Summer School Office at summerschool@materdei.org if the student would not be able to be active online for more than 3 days.
Need to make a scheduling request?
 
The schedule cannot be finalized until we know how many students will enroll in each class. Please note any scheduling requests, including preferred class period or activities to schedule around, when you register.
 
Requests made by the Priority registration deadline of May 10th, 2021 are more likely to be granted.
Absence Policy
 
Students should not plan to miss more than 3 class days. This includes missing required time online. Exception: student's middle school or high school (other than MDHS) ends up to one week after our Summer School begins (note on registration form). All other absence requests extending more than 3 days must be made in advance by emailing summerschool@materdei.org.
Final Exams
 
Final Exams in all courses take place on July 23rd, 2021. This includes all course types and all formats. Summer School closes on July 23rd- all student work and final exams must be turned into our instructors by that date. Early Final Exams will require approval from the Summer School Office and instructor, and an Early Final Exam fee for each early exam.
When will I receive the schedule?
 
Student schedules will be emailed a few days prior to the start of Summer School. If you requested certain class periods and registered by May 10th, 2021, we can almost always accommodate these requests. This means that, for example, if you requested period 2, you can plan for period 2. 
Can students attend Mater Dei's Summer School from different states or countries?
 
With the online format, students will be able to access course materials and live lessons from most any location. To participate in online Summer School courses, students will need a strong and stable internet connection, an electronic device, and should be available during the class times. Summer School courses will run in CA time. 
 
If the student is not a US citizen and not an MDHS International student, they may not participate. MDHS International students must have the appropriate approvals to earn credits from US courses. MDHS International students may check with our International Student Director, Ms. Lee. New International Student applicants, please check here
