High School Summer Programs Descriptions

The high school summer programs provide credit courses for high school students to accelerate their program of study or to repeat courses not successfully completed during the regular school year. Students enrolling in a credit bearing course for the first time must complete a two-session summer program equal to one year of instruction in the regular school term to receive full credit. Students repeating a course they have previously failed may earn credit by completing a one-session summer course.

Virginia Beach Digital Campus online courses are taught in the two-session summer format for first time takers. Students needing a repeat course who take a Virginia Beach Digital Campus class must complete the full summer term. All course offerings are dependent upon sufficient enrollment and the availability of suitable certified and endorsed instructors.

All VBCPS students who are taking a summer school course and are required to take the associated end-of-course (EOC) SOL test may be expected to participate in taking the SOL test during summer school, unless the student has already passed the test. Students must be enrolled in Virginia Beach City Public Schools for the 2020-2021 school year before testing begins. All SOL tests except writing require one day of testing. Students who are scheduled to graduate by August 26, 2021 and are taking the SOL EOC writing test require four days of testing. Students scheduled to graduate after August 26, 2021 and are taking the SOL EOC Writing test require two days of testing.

Dates: June 29 – August 16
