In order to enroll, students must complete the attached application and mail it to Mountain Lakes High School Summer Academy. The application is available in the brochure, as well as on the Mountain Lakes School District website. The tuition deadline is June 1st and enrollment is based on the order of applications received. Students may enroll before this date or after, provided that the requested course is not closed. Please note that we reserve the right to cancel any class due to enrollment. We will make that decision in early June.
2013 Schedule Classes will meet every day, Monday through Friday. (There are no classes scheduled on Thursday, July 4th.) The meeting times for each course are listed in the course descriptions section of the brochure. Advance credit courses and preview courses meet Monday, July 1st to Friday, August 9th. The dates for the courses that run less than six weeks are listed in the course description section. Missing any class time is strongly discouraged. However, students taking advance credit courses are allowed two absences, totaling no more than 8 hours. It is the responsibility of the students enrolled in advance credit classes to make up all work and assignments missed when absent.
Tuition & Fees A separate enrollment fee of $50, which can be paid by check, cash, or money order, must be submitted with the completed MLHS Summer Academy application form to Mountain Lakes High School. The tuition for each course is listed in the course descriptions section of the brochure. The tuition balance can be paid by check, cash, money order or credit card through our online service, and is due no later than May 15th. A student’s place in a course may be relinquished if the student has a tuition balance after May 15th. Students may enroll in courses after May 15th; however, the enrollment fee and the full tuition must be paid at the time of application. Most textbooks will be provided to students for free during the session. However, students may be required to purchase supplemental materials.
Refunds The $50 enrollment fee is non-refundable. An additional $150 fee will be assessed if a student withdraws from a course between May 15th and the first day of his/her class. If a student withdraws in the first half of a course, a refund of 25% of the remaining balance will be given. No refunds will be given after a student has completed half of his/her course.
Student Conduct Expectations are high at Mountain Lakes High School in all areas. Students are expected to conduct themselves in a manner worthy of respect. Behavior that strips any member of the school community of her or his dignity or that infringes on another student’s opportunity to receive an education will not be tolerated and failure to comply with the rules of conduct will result in dismissal from the summer session. Students should dress comfortably, yet modestly. To ensure the safety of our students, only those who are enrolled in a summer course (or who are picking up a student) are permitted in our building. The MLHS Summer Academy’s office closes each day at 1PM, so please make sure that your transportation needs are met by that time.
