Summer Programs

Summer School

Summer school courses can be taken through various organizations and institutions. Courses may be offered through your local public school district or another area public school. Online summer school programs are a popular and flexible way for students to pursue summer classes, particularly for credit recovery. Some online school options include, but are not limited to: Michigan Virtual High School and BYU Independent Study. If you are interested in learning more about summer school programs and course offerings, please visit the following websites to explore some of the available options.  **Please note that Mercy does not endorse any one particular summer school program/organization.  
Plans for summer school participation must be discussed with the student's counselor. Your counselor needs to verify the course(s) you plan to take prior to registration.

Mercy High School receives information throughout the year regarding various summer programs, classes and camps. Many of them are for enrichment and some also offer college credits. Most programs have spring deadlines but all information and applications should be available online through the programs.
