Ferndale High School & University High School students may pre-register for summer classes with their counselors any time before official registration. 

All students, especially non-Ferndale Public Schools students, should get their summer classes approved by their guidance counselors before registering to ensure that it is possible to receive credit for those classes. Any enrollment made without the pre-approval of the student’s counselor will be done at the risk of the student not receiving credit despite passing the class.

After a class reaches its limit, the class will be closed, and no more students will be enrolled in that course.

Classes are subject to cancellation due to low enrollment. Therefore, when possible, students should indicate an alternate choice for each hour. All efforts will be made to accommodate first choice selection.

All classes are for students who are repeating a class.

Students removed from the program for disciplinary reasons will not receive a refund.

Class Information

All classes will be held at Ferndale High School. 

There are no busses for high school students. Students and their families must provide their own transportation.

Classes meet according to the attached calendar (see next page).

Students may take up to 3 courses, with the third course being online only.

At the teacher’s discretion, each class may have up to two five-minute breaks during the class period.
The twenty-minute break between classes is not long enough for students to leave school and return to second hour safely. Therefore, we ask that all students enrolled in two classes stay on campus for lunch, which will be provided free-of-charge in the cafeteria. Students may also, of course, bring their own food from home.

Rules, Policies & Philosophy

Absences

There is a three-absence limit. After a student’s third absence, the teacher is no longer required to assign make-up work to that student or to offer any instruction for the day(s) the student missed. Any and all make-up work that an absent student does receive must be turned in within two days of the absence.

Tardiness

Timeliness is extremely important to us. Students are considered tardy for class if they are even one second late. Once a student accumulates three tardies, at his/her teacher’s discretion, the student can be excluded from any subsequent class segments for which he/she is tardy and sent to the office to wait until the class takes a scheduled break. Finally, three tardies will count as one absence toward the three-absence limit (see “Absences” above).

Disruptive Behavior

Any disruptive behavior (in or out of the classroom) can result in the student being sent home and/or dropped from the summer program, depending on the seriousness of the offense. Repeated rule violations of any kind will result in removal from the Summer Academy. Students removed from the program for disciplinary reasons will not receive a passing grade or a refund.
Driving: Students who drive to the Summer Academy must park in the front parking lot and obey all traffic laws both on school property and in the surrounding neighborhoods. Speeding, reckless driving, noise pollution from car stereos, or other violations will result in the loss of parking privileges and possible dismissal from the Summer Academy. The Ferndale Police will be contacted if necessary.

Snacking Responsibly

The enjoyment of snacks on school grounds is a privilege, and carries with it the following responsibilities: (a) enjoying their snacks in the designated areas only and (b) keeping the school grounds and the surrounding neighborhoods free of litter. 

Closed Campus

The twenty-minute break between classes is not long enough for students to leave school and return to second hour safely. Therefore, we ask that all students enrolled in two classes stay on campus for lunch, which will be provided free-of-charge in the cafeteria. Students may also, of course, bring their own food from home. Furthermore, out of respect for our neighbors, we ask that, on the way to and from school, students refrain from going to the neighborhood convenience stores or, at the very least, behave appropriately when they do go.

Dress Code

Students should not wear anything that is inappropriate for an educational environment. Students determined by the staff to be dressed inappropriately will not be permitted to attend class until they change into appropriate clothing. Also, because the building has intermittent air conditioning, dressing warmly but in layers is recommended. 

*These rules, policies, and procedures are non-negotiable and will not be debated. If you cannot abide by these rules, this program might not be for you.
