Summer School 2021

The Anchorage School District will be offering Summer School classes this summer starting June 2nd.  Classes will be free of charge and can be taken for Credit Recovery, Grade Replacement, and Original Attempt. Students can take up to four (.5 cr) Credit Recovery and/or Grade Replacement classes or two (.5 cr) Original Attempt classes. 


There are two different Summer School options to choose from: On-Site Summer School and Virtual Summer School.


On-Site Summer School -


On-Site Summer School will take place at Eagle River High School as well as several other sites in Anchorage including East High.  Classes taken on-site are for Credit Recovery only.  These are for students who failed classes and need to make up credit to catch up. There will be two sessions and students can take up to two classes in each session for a total of four.  Classes will be primarily taught through the online APEX program, but will be led by teachers who will also provide in-person instruction and group activities.  Transportation will NOT be provided.  These classes are also not NCAA approved.


Session 1: June 2 – June 30           AM (8:00 AM – 11:00 AM)           PM (12:00 PM – 3:00 PM)

Session 2: July 12 – August 6        AM (8:00 AM – 11:00 AM)           PM (12:00 PM – 3:00 PM)


Virtual Summer School -


Virtual Summer School can be used for all three types of classes, Original Attempt, Credit Recovery, and Grade Replacement.  These classes will be 100% online and will not require students to attend any school sites. Virtual classes in most cases will require students to be more self-disciplined and motivated.  Credit Recovery and Grade Replacement classes (up to 4 total) will follow the same schedule as On-Site (see above).  Students can take a maximum of two Virtual Original Attempt classes and will have from June 2 – August 6 to complete them.


Sign-ups for all Summer School classes have begun.  All requests for classes must be entered by your student’s counselor.  To help facilitate the sign-up process, we have created two forms for student/parents to fill out, one for On-Site, and another for Virtual.  Some of you have already filled out a form from the ASD website, and counselors are monitoring the results from that.  If you know what classes you want/need to take, just fill out the form, choose the class(es) and counselors will enter your requests .  If you are not sure what you need or have questions, please contact your counselor by e-mail or give them a call.
