Summer Reading Requirements

In preparation for the 2022-2023 school year, your child is encouraged to read throughout the summer. All students are expected to read at least two books: one grade level book and one book selected from our SAS Book Club list. Students may select a title of their choice from that list. We’ve set aside time early in the school year for our Book Club discussions. The grade level book will be discussed and assessed in the first few weeks of school in humanities courses. For more information about summer reading, including the Book Club list, please see our Summer Reading page.

Academic Preparation

Skills Review

Some students may benefit from practicing their math skills during the summer, and several good options exist for doing so. The Summer Skills workbooks, designed to help students maintain their math skills over the summer, offer short lessons by subject area. Khan Academy is a free, online option that offers video tutorials, practice problems, and progress tracking. 

Acceleration or Credit Recovery

If your child is seeking acceleration, One Schoolhouse (OSH) provides full year credits in their summer online courses. Students should expect to spend about 20 hours per week working on an OSH course. In order to be eligible to take a course, students must have an A average in the discipline in which they are seeking to accelerate and have a recommendation from their most recent teacher in that discipline, as well as final approval from me.

If your child failed a course and is seeking credit recovery, Laurel Springs Academy offers a variety of semester or full-year credit courses this summer. Please reach out to me to discuss options for your child.

2022-2023 Courses

In late April, returning students were guided through the course and afternoon program request process for their grade level. In the Upper School, final course determination is dependent upon individual student schedule needs and class size limits. Student schedules will be made available in mid to late July.
