FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Temecula Education Foundation Sponsors 8th Year of Accelerated High School Summer Classes
Registration Opens May 1; Temecula Students Have Until May 31 to Sign Up for High School Acceleration & Enrichment Classes
April 24, 2017 – TEMECULA – The Temecula Education Foundation (TEF), a nonprofit dedicated to supporting the nearly 30,000 students in the Temecula Valley Unified School District (TVUSD), is pleased to announce that its list of proposed classes for Summer 2017 high school acceleration and enrichment, known as TEF Summer High School, is now online at temeculaeducationfoundation.org. Online class registration opens May 1, and closes May 31. There are no refunds for any courses after June 6. Classes will be held on the campus of Chaparral High School, 27215 Nicolas Rd., in Temecula.
The TEF-sponsored for-credit and non-credit classes offer high school students, including current eighth graders who will be high school freshmen in August, an opportunity to get a head start on their 2017-18 high school classes. Students also can prepare for the rigors of high school algebra or advanced level (AP/IB) Chemistry by taking enrichment boot camps. TEF is pleased to continue its collaboration with TVUSD to provide this opportunity for students.
Among the proposed classes are Ceramics, Geometry, Spanish 1, 2, and 3, World History, Economics, and Government. All for-credit classes meet University of California “A-G” entrance requirements.
To help give students an advantage before tackling regular school-year classes, workshops (for practice only; no credit) will be offered in Pre-AP/IB Chemistry and Algebra I “boot camp” workshops. The designation AP refers to Advanced Placement, and IB/International Baccalaureate, college-level classes which are generally more demanding. Back for its fourth year is the Algebra I Boot Camp, which is designed to help students transition from middle to high school by reviewing and helping them understand basic algebraic concepts and mathematics standards.
Fee-based acceleration and enrichment classes are sponsored by TEF, with the Temecula Valley Unified School District (TVUSD) serving as the accreditation body for courses taught for credit. Class registration can be accessed online via the TEF website, using the cloud-based purchase platform sponsored by PurplePass Ticketing.
Classes will be held Mondays through Fridays at Chaparral High School beginning June 12 and concluding July 7. There will be no class held on Tuesday, July 4th, in observance of the Independence Day holiday. Schedules vary; see temeculaeducationfoundation.org for specific dates. Classes are intended for students within the TVUSD boundaries; students from other districts should check with their home schools before registering. Classes are subject to change based on lack of enrollment and/or teacher availability.
Enrichment or for-credit classes should not be confused with TVUSD high school credit recovery or remediation summer school courses. Information on those courses is available from each high school’s counseling department and on the TVUSD website at www.tvusd.k12.ca.us.
