What To Expect

Each semester is just three 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.

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.


If a student arrives late:
All students arriving late must report to the attendance office. A student who is late more than three times will be dropped from the class.  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.

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.

Dress Code

All students must wear either CCHS spirit wear or school uniform.  Students that are non-CCHS students are allowed jeans, khaki pants/shorts and a solid tee shirt or polo.
