Retaking Courses for Credit and/or Grade Recovery
FUHSD Summer Academy
The Fremont Union High School District offers a limited summer program prioritizing students who have earned a F in a class required for graduation. Offerings in Biology, Algebra 1, Geometry, English, World History, US History, Government, and Economics are filled first by students who have not passed the course. Students who have earned a D in any of these courses, and wish to make them up to be college eligible, are placed as space is available.
Summer Academy sign-ups begin in January. Students who need to make-up a course/grade should contact their counselor to register between January and March.
Options Outside FUHSD
For options beyond the FUHSD Program, the LHS Guidance Team researches local opportunities at Private High Schools, Online Summer Programs and Community Colleges to find affordable opportunities to make-up grades. This is not an exhaustive list of programs. Families may submit the request for credit form (linked below) for other school programs if they sound like a more appropriate fit for your student.
Keep in mind that for graduation purposes, a "D" grade is considered passing, but 4-year colleges may not accept a "D" grade as passing credit. Visit the University of California A-G Requirements webpage to clarify admission requirements to the University of California (requirements are the same for the California State University system.)
- Meet with your counselor to discuss program and goals (Counselors are not available after May 31st).
- Review Lynbrook's Summer Options for different ways to make up courses.
- It is often difficult to find equivalents for AP and honors courses during the summer and some times, it may not be possible to find a course.
- After selecting a program, submit a Request for Credit Form to the LHS Main Office and await approval. Request for credit forms to make up a course/grade are due to the main office by June 19 (the office is open for limited hours - check the LHS website).
- Once you complete a summer course, don't forget to send a final transcript to: LHS Registrar, 1280 Johnson Ave, San Jose, CA 95129.
