BHS Summer Learning Opportunities K-12
The summer programs in Bloomfield Hills Schools will extend the school year by providing continuous learning opportunities for students.
For students in grades kindergarten through eighth grade, BHS Summer Academy will include small group instruction, with a desired outcome of building confidence and providing enriched social experiences. The summer academy will focus on interacting with peers and teachers to build upon math and literacy skills. The learning format will be in-person, no charge for students, and open to all Bloomfield Hills Schools students. In order to balance the need for a summer break, classes will be held for two and a half hours, three days a week, for four weeks. Students can continue with another four week session for additional learning time.
Students in grades kindergarten through eighth grade also have the option to participate in Staying Sharp virtual learning with a focus on math and literacy. These live-virtual sessions take place twice a week, for 30 minutes, for four weeks, and cost $75 (no cost for students with free/reduced lunch status).
High school students have a variety of summer program options. The learning format is virtual, with in-person office hours for tutoring and support offered on the Bloomfield Hills High School campus. Summer programming for high school students offers three options; (1) a student may retake a course in order to improve their grade, (2) recover credits for a course that was not successfully passed during the school year, (3) earn credit for a required course in order to advance and accelerate their high school curriculum.
