Read through our Frequently Asked Questions for up-to-date information about Summer@Prep 2021.
What is Summer@Prep’s COVID-19 health and safety plan?
We are in constant consultation with our COVID-19 School Compliance Task Force to develop a comprehensive and adaptable plan for summer school. We will keep our families informed on this webpage and through email communications as we make updates to our plan and as state and Los Angeles County protocols evolve. The health and safety of our community, including our summer school community, are our primary concern and we continue to follow all state and local guidelines. To learn more about Prep’s Return to Campus Plan and our school’s current COVID-19 protocols, click here.
How do I register for classes?
- Browse courses by session by clicking the links above.
- Click on the “Click Here to Register” button.
- Follow the steps to create an account/login to your existing account.
- Select courses and submit payment.
- Remember your login information to access copies of your invoice and to see your list of registered classes.
How will the program be conducted: in-person, online only, or a hybrid learning environment?
- Our hope is to launch in a hybrid model, allowing students the opportunity to choose whether they want to take a class in person or online. If state and local guidelines allow students on campus, families will be able to decide whether they would like to learn in person or at home at the time of registration.
- In a hybrid model, courses will be taught concurrently, with online students engaging along with students who are on campus. A few courses are available for online instruction only and are specified as such when you enter our registration site.
- In-person instruction is entirely contingent on county and state public health guidelines. We are prepared to move all courses seamlessly to online-only instruction if required to do so by state or county guidelines.
- Safety and health are our primary concerns. Just as with our Return to Campus Plan, our Summer@Prep plan will allow us to move fluidly between in-person, online, and hybrid models as circumstances change, in order to maintain health and safety, reinforce continuity of teaching and learning, and protect community well-being.
Will sports camps and athletics be offered this summer?
We hope to offer in-person sports camps and outdoor activities for small cohorts of students that follow all state and local county guidelines on athletics. As state and LA County guidelines evolve, we will update this information. For students and parents interested in sports camps, please sign up for our summer newsletter by filling out the form on our summer home page to receive the latest updates.
What is your tuition refund or cancellation policy?
- Total tuition is due with your submitted application. Students who withdraw from summer school before June 1 will receive a full refund, less a $100 administrative fee. There will be no refunds for withdrawals after June 1.
- If Flintridge Prep cancels a class and an acceptable alternative class cannot be found, all fees associated with that class will be refunded.
- Flintridge Prep does not prorate fees for any courses or camps.
- For-credit classes: A 50% refund will be given if a student withdraws from the class before the end of the first week of class. No refund will be given if a student drops a for-credit class after the first week is complete.
Does Flintridge Prep offer financial aid for summer school students?
Summer school financial aid is available to incoming and current students presently receiving financial aid from Flintridge Prep. Financial aid does not apply to all courses. Please contact us at email@example.com to see if the courses you are interested in qualify for aid.
What is your for-credit policy?
Flintridge Prep Accelerating Students:
- With prior approval from the mathematics department, current and enrolled Flintridge Prep students receiving an A- on a final exam as well as a final grade of A in an accelerated summer course (Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2) may receive credit for the course. Students may not miss more than three days of class and still receive credit.
Flintridge Prep Non-accelerating Students:
- For Algebra I and Geometry a passing grade must be received in order to matriculate into the next level course in the fall. For Algebra II students, a course of a B+ or higher must be received to be placed into Precalculus in the fall. A student with a grade of B or lower will be placed in Statistics.
Non-Flintridge Prep Students:
- Please contact your child’s school before registering for a summer school course to learn what the requirements are to receive credit for summer session courses. Each school maintains their own policies for acceleration and credit. Transcripts will be sent to schools upon request.
