Summer School

students at computersHanover County Public Schools provides a variety of educational opportunities for students during the summer. The purpose of summer school is to enrich the education of students and to permit students to earn credits needed for graduation or promotion.

Due to COVID-19, elementary summer school as well as middle school remediation options are still under development at this time. 

High School Courses

The 2020 secondary Hanover County Public Schools summer school program is fully online and provides students the opportunity to earn credits needed for graduation, promotion, and courses for advancement. Students may enroll only in one course.

    Note: If a student takes the online course for health and PE 10, the student would need to take on the responsibility both personally and financially to take drivers education as it will not be part of the summer school online curriculum, and Hanover Schools will not offer a standalone driver’s education course outside of the health and PE 10 course offering.

Students who want to take other courses are encouraged to visit the Virtual Virginia website and review summer course offerings. Your school counselor will assist with the registration process if interested.

Online Course Considerations:

With help from your school counselor and parents, students should consider the following questions?

  • Am I self-motivated and disciplined? Students should be prepared to devote as much time to the online course as would be expected in a face-to-face course. (three to five hours per day).
  • Am I receptive to information through written or visual context as opposed to spoken communication with an instructor?
  • Am I able to self-advocate and troubleshoot to get my academic and technological needs met?
  • Do I have consistent access to the internet and a reliable laptop/desktop?

We understand that some students may find accessing online learning resources challenging. If you need reliable tools or connectivity, please contact our summer school coordinator.
