SUMMER SCHOOL 2023
The Servite Summer School Program strives to offer remediation/credit recovery and advancement opportunities to the students of Servite, Rosary, and surrounding communities. Additionally, we offer an incoming Freshman Academy program both for advancement and specially identified students who would benefit from the reinforcement of foundational skills and to students who would like to experience academics on the campus before they officially attend school as freshmen.
All courses will be in person and there will not be a remote option.
Registration information for current and future Servite students:
If you are required to take summer school and are currently a Servite student or will be one in the fall, your counselor has registered you for summer school. If you would like to take a summer school advancement course, please be sure to indicate so on your course request sheet and submit to your counselor. Online Registration is only for Non-Servite students.
Summer School fees will be automatically added to your tuition account through Blackbaud. You may pay immediately by going to Blackbaud Tuition Management and making a manual payment, or your payment will be automatically deducted on your auto-pay due date in July or August.
Servite strives to offer its students a comprehensive remediation program. Our students receive access to our digital textbooks that allows them to work from anywhere they have an internet connection. Students repeat the entire course they are remediating, focusing on the mastery of concepts covered in the course. Daily teacher interaction, comparable content and rigor, and regular feedback, all combine to make the remediation experience a genuine opportunity to review previous content and prepare for future courses.
Advancement GEometry Courses
Servite students who want to take an Advancement Geometry course must be cleared to do so by their counselor. Advancement Geometry (both Honors and College Prep) are rigorous courses that move at a very fast pace. Students who take an advancement math course must be committed to working diligently on their assignments and keeping up with the pace so that they are successful and effectively learn the skills taught in the course.
A student who enrolls in an advancement course can withdraw from the course no later than 4:00 p.m. on the fourth day of class without any effect to his transcript. Any student who does not officially withdraw from the class before that date will show the earned grade on the transcript and may need to remediate that class if the grade earned is a D or an F. Grades of C or higher cannot be remediated. Students who withdraw from any summer school class after 4:00 p.m. the first day of class will not receive a refund.
Freshman Academy includes all courses that incoming freshmen may take during the summer. These fall into two categories: Review and Advancement.
Based on the High School Placement Test scores and a thorough review of their application file, some students are recommended and/or required to take summer academy classes in English, Study Skills, and/or Mathematics. Students and their families are informed of the recommendation/requirement by Admissions. Freshman Academy review classes in English and Mathematics are also open to any incoming freshman who wants to take a refresher course to transition more smoothly into high school. Students get a feel for the campus and meet new classmates before officially entering as a freshman.
In rare cases, a student’s acceptance to Servite is directly tied into his successful completion of the Academy review program. In these cases, those families will have constant communication with the school regarding progress and a meeting will be held with these families and the student if course progress is not meeting expected standards. If a student who was required to attend summer school as a condition of his acceptance fails to do so that student’s acceptance to Servite will be revoked.
Specifically offered for incoming honors students who wish to pursue athletics or multiple years of a fine art in addition to our advanced curriculum. Taking this course over the summer alleviates the need to take a zero period class freshman year. If space allows, college prep students wanting to start a fine art in addition to their foreign language may also take this course. Parents are encouraged to contact their son's counselor if they have any questions.
A student who enrolls in an advancement course can withdraw from the course no later than 4:00 p.m. on the fourth day of class without any effect to his transcript. Any student who does not officially withdraw from the class before that date will show the earned grade on the transcript and may need to remediate that class if the grade earned is a D or an F. Grades of C or higher cannot be remediated.
