Description:

North Hills School District is accepting registration for its summer educational programs. The district’s Online Academy @ North Hills, which is open to students throughout southwest Pennsylvania, is offering 38 online courses for students in grades seven to 12.

The Online Academy offers summer classes for credit recovery in math, English, science, social studies and health. Credit recovery courses are intended for students who were not able to achieve a passing grade during the school year.

In addition, the Online Academy provides full-credit enrichment courses in health, language arts, mathematics, keystone algebra I, keystone literature, keystone biology, physical education, contemporary art, teen transitions, computer applications and driver’s education (theory only). The online academy will also offer SAT Verbal Prep and Language Enrichment in which the emphasis is based on weekly vocabulary and etymology lessons and review of SAT-testing strategies for the critical reading section of the exam. Students will receive access to the official SAT Online study course with their enrollment in this course, a $69.95 value. The online course includes full-length practice tests, interactive activities and automated essay scoring. The online academy also will offer world language courses in Chinese, German and Latin.

Tuition for credit recovery courses is $115 for a three-week, half-credit course and $235 for a six-week, one-credit course. Tuition for the eight-week, for-credit courses range from $20 to $399.

All courses are developed by highly qualified high school teachers from partnering school districts and organizations. The curriculum for each course is aligned to the Pennsylvania Academic Standards, Assessment Anchors and Eligible Content. PSSA and Keystone Exam instructional strategies have been embedded throughout each course.

Interested students are encouraged to talk with their guidance counselor before applying. Applications are available in high school guidance offices and can be downloaded at www.nhsd.net.

Classes begin June 27. Students must complete an online orientation which will be available starting June 23. Course expectations, syllabus and materials (if needed) will be available at that time. In addition, an introduction to Blackboard, the course management software, will be presented.
