Summer Program Description

Regular attendance at the summer program is very important because of the fast pace and high concentration of daily work.  In order for the students to make sufficient progress, students are expected to be in attendance each day.

  • Each day’s work is the equivalent of a week’s work in the regular term.  A student who misses more than two days, excused or unexcused, will not receive credit.  Each tardy to school will count as ½ of an absence.
  • Students are required to remain in class during the entire instructional day, 8 a.m. – 1 p.m.


Any student whose behavior is disruptive and interferes with classroom instruction will be dismissed by the summer program principal. The WJCC Code of Student Conduct (available on the WJCC website) outlines the expectations for student behavior. Students will be subject to suspension or dismissal from classes if they violate policies with regard to student conduct.

Dress Code

Adherence to the School Board Code of Dress shall also be maintained: “All students are expected to wear dress appropriate to the occasion; extreme or ostentatious apparel or appearance is to be avoided. Any article of clothing or accessory which advertises alcohol or an illegal substance, depicts lewd graphics, displays offensive or obscene language, or is gang-related is forbidden.” 


There are no exam exemptions during the Summer High School Program.

Food Service

Snack foods are available for purchase during the high school program.


Students that would like to park on campus during the Summer High School Program must have a parking pass.  A parking pass can be picked up during Open House.  Rules will be issued with the parking permit.

Tuition assistance is available for high school credit-recovery, credit-bearing and enrichment courses (forms available in the school counseling office). Parents must complete a Withdrawal Form and submit it to the Summer Program office by July 8.  No refunds will be made for withdrawals after this date.  All refunds will be given within 10 business days and must be picked up by a parent from their child’s school.  No refund of fees will be made if a student is dismissed for disciplinary reasons or excessive absences.
