2017 Summer School classes will be held at Agoura High School. Please be sure you meet the prerequisites before enrolling. 

Students wishing to take a class for the first time MUST enroll in both semesters of the desired class (the equivalent of a full academic year) or no credit will be granted by the student's high school. For example, students who want to take Algebra I for the first time must enroll in Algebra I, semester 1, AND Algebra I, semester 2. 

Workshops

Students enrolling in a workshop do not have to be enrolled in other summer school classes.

Workshop Description Dates
Strategies for Success

This one-day workshop will provide a compilation of strategies, research, and first person experience to help students be successful in the high school classroom. Led by LVUSD teachers, this workshop will introduce your student to the latest research on how the brain learns and different learning styles, including specific suggestions on how students can improve their performance based on their individual learning styles. Instructors will discuss communication styles and techniques that students can use to effectively communicate with their peers and their instructors. Current LVUSD students who have demonstrated success both academically and extra-curricularly will offer their insights for a peer perspective on how to be successful. Finally, each student will walk away with a handbook filled with specific study strategies and techniques designed for a wide variety of high school learning environments.

This workshop is geared to students entering 9th grade in fall 2017, but students in other high school grades are welcome to attend.

There are no summer school classes on the workshop days.

On the following Fridays:

June 30 or July 14

To be held at AHS

Mastering Middle School

This one-day workshop is for students entering 6th grade in fall 2017. Current 6th and 7th graders were asked what they wished they had known before entering 6th grade.
