VHS Learning Opens 2021 Summer School Registration

Posted Feb 09, 2021

Boston — Feb. 9, 2021 — VHS Learning has opened registration for its summer 2021 courses. The summer program begins June 16 and offers more than 36 online high school courses for credit recovery and enrichment. Courses are either eight weeks or four weeks long and are instructor-led and include NCAA-approved options. Eight-week courses begin on June 16. Four-week courses are offered in two sessions. The first series of four-week courses starts June 16. The second series begins July 19.

The summer program offers core math, social studies, history and English courses as well as a variety of electives for enrichment such as JavaScript programming, creative writing, personal finance, and solar energy design. Students in grades 7-12 can enroll in the summer courses.

“VHS Learning’s summer courses have a proven track record of helping students recover credits they need to graduate,” said Carol DeFuria, President & CEO of VHS Learning. “Taking courses over the summer can help students who are behind catch up on concepts they missed during the school year, and summer courses also give students who want to explore a subject of interest the ability to complete their coursework during the summer, when they have more time. Because VHS Learning summer courses can be accessed day or night, students can still meet work and other summer commitments while achieving their academic goals.”

VHS Learning has a 25-year reputation for educational quality, including rigorous professional development for the certified teachers who provide summer course instruction. All VHS Learning teachers complete graduate-level Online Teaching Methodologies (OTM) training to learn best practices for online teaching and learning, and 81% of VHS Learning teachers possess a master’s degree or higher.

VHS Learning course design and delivery standards were the model used by the National Education Association when they created the first standards for online learning. In 2019, in collaboration with the international nonprofit Quality Matters, VHS Learning helped update the National Standards for Quality (NSQ) in three areas: Online Courses, Online Teaching, and Online Programs.

“We take a lot of pride in the quality of our courses and instruction,” DeFuria continued. “And our summer school teachers are ready to help students catch up and stay on track with their academic studies.”
