High School

HHS will offer both “get ahead” and credit recovery courses for current high school students this summer. School counselors will work with students who need credit recovery and can also assist with those looking to get ahead. See below for more information.

Get Ahead courses:

  • Drivers Education
  • Personal Finance/Consumer Education
  • American Government
  • U.S. History

Credit Recovery courses:

  • Credit Recovery (electives and core classes offered)
  • Algebra 1 – Semester 2 (students must have passed Semester 1)

What criteria is used for selecting summer school students?

Any student looking to get ahead in credits or clear up a spot in their schedule can request a Get Ahead course. Each course has a specific set of prerequisites that must be met to be considered for a seat. Please note that, due to staffing, not every request may be able to be honored. Students needing a Credit Recovery course should sign up based on their credit deficiencies. Students who select a credit recovery option will be put on a list and verified by their school counselor to ensure eligibility.
