Summer school offers students an opportunity to make up classes or credits they may have failed, or an opportunity to get ahead and open up room in their school year schedule for other classes. Either way, students have two options for summer classes through the Amphitheater School District: in the classroom or online.
Classroom instruction will take place at CDO this year and information about registration can be found here.
Online classes are offered through the Mesa Distance Learning Program (MDLP) and information about registration for those classes can be found here.
Whichever program a student chooses we recommend that they speak with their counselor before registering to make sure that they are choosing the correct class.
Listed below are opportunities that are offered at various universities and colleges around the nation and others here in the Tucson area. The Counseling Deprtment is not endorsing or recommending any of these but rather is providing information. Please be sure to check out any programs you might be interested in before you sign up.
