Discovery High School Virtual Summer Health & PE
Discovery High School Summer School Health and Personal Fitness courses are being offered virtually through Discovery Community School. Classes are virtual and will begin on Monday, June 5th, 2023, and end on Wednesday, June 28th, 2023. These two courses are graduation requirements but can be taken at any time during a student’s four years. While optional, successful completion of these two courses over the summer will give your students open slots in their future academic schedules.
These two summer courses are recommended for rising 9th-grade students interested in band, orchestra, theater, and athletics, as well as any other rising 9thgrader who wants to open two-class slots during the normal school year for other courses and opportunities, like Advanced Placement courses, Dual Enrollment, and electives that can lead to academy pathway completion and certification. The Health course cost is $250.00and the personal fitness course cost is $250.00. With the successful completion of each course, you will earn .5 credits for each course and complete a graduation requirement. You may register for one course or for both courses. One course would be $250.00 and both courses would be $500.00
