Summer School

  • Depending on the academic needs of the student, SVUSD high school students have different summer school program opportunities for credit recovery and, under certain conditions, original credit.
  • Because each program is unique, it is important that you meet with your Guidance Counselor or Guidance Technician to determine which program and course(s) you need to enroll. 
  • All programs are available to high school students only who will attend a SVUSD high school in the fall of 2019, SVUSD summer graduate seniors, and students who live within the SVUSD boundaries.
  • For more information, please contact your school's guidance office.
