Overview

The Brookline Summer Program is an enriching educational experience that affords numerous opportunities for academic growth and creative expression. Standard level English, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, and Spanish courses are designed to allow students to make up or to review work that was not successfully completed or that proved difficult during the regular school year. Original credit courses offer the opportunity to receive full-year standard-level credit. Elective courses allow students to explore their interest and earn credit toward graduation. Enrichment courses are also offered for students to continue their educational journey through the summer.

Course Cancellation Policy

Courses with fewer than six registered students may be canceled. Parents will be notified of a cancellation by July 1st. Parents are encouraged to explore alternative courses in the event of a course cancellation.

Curriculum

All courses are based on the Brookline Public Schools Learning Expectations and reflect, where appropriate, Massachusetts State Standards.

Immunization Requirement

All Summer School students must present evidence of immunization as required by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts at the time of registration. This information will be on record for current Brookline students, yet it must be up to date. Student who register online should mail, fax, or electronically send to the director. If the necessary documentation is not submitted, students will not be able to participate in courses until appropriate documentation is provided.  

Financial Aid

Students who attend Brookline Public Schools and qualify for financial aid will see this reflected in their My School Bucks Account during the registration process. Students who do not attend Public Schools of Brookline should seek financial assistance from their school district. Financial aid inquiries should be sent to the Director, brendan_kobus@psbma.org. 

Credit

Credit will be granted for successful completion of summer school courses under the following conditions:

Upon student request, Brookline Summer School will forward official reports to non-Brookline student’s school concerning courses completed during the summer. Students must submit appropriate information on page 25 for grades to be sent upon completion.

Expectations

Attendance

The intensive demands of a five-week session make it imperative that students be in class every day.  Any student who is taking a course for credit and who has attended fewer than 22 days may be informed that they will not be able to receive credit and will not receive a refund of his/her tuition.  Any tardies or absences will directly (at teacher’s discretion) affect the student’s overall grade.

Code of Conduct

In order to create and maintain a positive and safe learning environment that supports student learning, there are behavioral as well as academic expectations for all summer school students.  The disciplinary offenses described in the Brookline High School Student Handbook pertain to the summer session as well.  Appropriate school dress is required during the summer.  Most courses will provide daily homework and a final examination.
