Two sessions will be held this summer primarily for students who need to make up classes they failed, though students may take courses to get ahead if space is available.
May 1, 2012
High school students can begin registering this week for summer school classes through their counselors. Summer school is primarily for students who need to make up classes they failed, though students may take courses to get ahead if space is available. Incoming freshmen are only allowed to take PE during the summer.
Tuition for summer school classes for APS students is $200 per half-credit. Non-APS charter school, homeschooled and private school students pay $250 per half-credit. Payments can be made at the APS Summer School Office, Suite 500E in the Alice and Bruce King Administrative Complex (City Centre) at 6400 Uptown Blvd. NE, or at all branches of New Mexico Educators Federal Credit Union.
Tuition for APS students can be discounted or waived based on income eligibility. To determine if students qualify for free or reduced-price tuition, families need to fill out a meal eligibility program application (aplicación en Español).
