What To Expect

Each semester is just four weeks long, therefore, summer classes are fast-paced. In addition to the four hours of instruction received each day, it will be important for each student to allocate additional time after school to work on homework. For online classes, an even greater time commitment is necessary. Online PE and Dual Enrollment Spanish 3/C Spanish 102 are eight week course. Online courses will require students to be on campus for a final on the last day of each session. Dual Enrollment Spanish students will be required to be on campus for a final on August 2nd.

Behavior Expectations

The Cathedral Catholic High School behavior code is intended to provide good order indispensable for the serious pursuit of academic excellence and for the high moral tone expected at CCHS. Behavior that is dangerous or keeps students from learning or prevents the teacher from teaching is not acceptable and will not be tolerated. Observance of this behavior expectation will place demands on the students’ self-control and growth toward maturity. The school reserves the right to review unsatisfactory conduct. The school is entitled to discipline the student and may include dismissal from summer school should any of behaviors be deemed intolerable by the school. The knowledge and compliance of the behavior expectations is expected of every student enrolled at Cathedral Catholic High School Academic Summer School.

Cathedral Catholic’s administration reserves the right to review the conduct and actions of CCHS students regardless of when or where such actions take place if they are of a nature to bring discredit to the school or if they conflict with the Christian values for which CCHS stands.

Attendance Requirements

Due to the short nature of the summer session, students are required to follow all attendance policies. Students are permitted one absence per session. More than one absence per session will result in the student being dropped from the course. Students are not allowed to be absent on the day of the final, and being absent on the final day of either session will result in a zero on the final and possibly an “F” in the course. Student are only allowed 2 tardies per session with the third tardy resulting in an absence. Any tardy thereafter will result in dismissal of the course, thereby forfeiting credit. If a student is dismissed from Cathedral Catholic High School Summer School, tuition will not be refunded.

If a student is absent:
If an absence occurs, parents are required to call the attendance office (858) 523-4001 by 9am on the date of the absence. Travel and appointments are unexcused absences for summer school courses, so if dates cannot be changed to accommodate required class attendance, the student is advised not to sign up for summer school.  All finals will be taken on the last day of each session. No accommodations will be made for students unable to take the final at it’s scheduled time.

If a student arrives late:
All students arriving late must report to the attendance office. Students are allowed two tardies per session. The third tardy will result in an absence with any tardy or absence thereafter resulting in dismissal from summer school. Students that arrive more than 40 minutes late will receive an absence. 

If a student must leave early:
Students that leave more than 40 minutes early will receive and absence and absence thereafter will result in dismissal of the program.  Early departures within the 40 minute allowance, will result in a tardy.  Two early departures, or any combination of tardies and departures exceeding two will result in an absence.  Any early departure, tardy or absence thereafter will result in dismissal of the program.

Parents/guardians are required to call the attendance office (858) 523-4001 to request a passport. Early dismissal is generally not allowed and will only be considered in extenuating circumstances. The summer school director reserves the right to withdraw a student from his/her course for leaving early.
