Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students,
Thank you for all of you who came to the parent-teacher conferences and made it the most successful yet--we were pleased to see you and further develop our partnership. As we have stated several times this year, Summer school must be completed at Santa Clara High School for any classes where a student fails (D+ and below since colleges will not accept anything below a C-). The information flyer is attached and we have copied and pasted it below just in case you cannot read it. We will allow students to take credit recovery courses or enrichment courses that would normally not fit their schedules. In some cases we will allow students to take courses at Oxnard Community College as an alternative but the student must get approval first.Thank you for your attention to this matter. Happy Friday!
SUMMER SCHOOL SESSIONS (CURRENT STUDENTS)
Santa Clara High School offers summer classes for its own students who need to repeat a class or who
would like to take an elective or enrichment class that would normally not fit their schedule during the
year. Students must remediate any semester grade of F in order to graduate. Students who wish to attend a
four-year university must remediate any semester grade of D. The cost is $250 for each semester class.
The registration deadline is June 7 for the first and second session. Registration is available online as well
as in the front office. SCHS students also have the option of taking the classes at Oxnard Community
College (even those who need to repeat a class). For Oxnard Community College the approval of the
counselor or the Vice Principal is required. Questions about whether a student needs to attend summer
classes should be directed to the student's counselor. The contact information is as follows: Mrs. Eileen
Huber at Huber@santaclarahighschool.com and Mrs. Dina Palmisano at
If a student needs to take two classes in any given session, the student must physically come to SCHS for
the first class (4 hours) and must take the additional class at home (additional 4 hour commitment every
day). If taking more than 1 class in a session, discount of $50 will be given for the 2nd class.
Session I June 13 to July 1 from 8:00 to 12:15 each day, $250 per class per session.
Session II July 5 to July 26 from 8:00 to 12:15 each day, $250 per class per session.
