Temecula Education Foundation Sponsors 7th year of High School Summer Classes

Registration Opens May 2; Students Have Until June 1 to Sign Up for High School Acceleration & Enrichment Classes

May 2, 2016 – TEMECULA – The Temecula Education Foundation (TEF), a nonprofit dedicated to supporting the more than 28,000 students in the Temecula Valley Unified School District (TVUSD), is pleased to announce that its list of proposed classes for Summer 2016 high school acceleration and enrichment, known as TEF Summer High School, is now online at Online class registration opens May 2, and closes June 1. There are no refunds for any courses after June 6. Classes will be held on the campus of Temecula Middle School, 42075 Meadows Parkway, in Temecula.

“The TEF-sponsored for-credit and non-credit classes offer high school students, including current eighth graders who will be freshmen in August, an opportunity to get a head start on their 2016-17 high school classes. Students also can prepare for the rigors of high school math and Advanced Placement (AP) Chemistry by taking enrichment boot camps. We are excited to continue our collaboration with TVUSD to provide this opportunity for students,” said Barbara Burkett, TEF President.

Among the proposed classes are Ceramics, Geometry, Spanish 1, 2, and 3, World History, Economics, and Government. In addition to traditional classroom courses, students also will have the option of virtual, blended (VB) courses which are a combination of in-class and on-line studies. Among these VB, for-credit classes are Government and Economics. 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 Chemistry and Algebra I. The designation AP refers to Advanced Placement, college-level classes which are generally more demanding. Back for its third year is an 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 Common Core 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. This year, the foundation is introducing a class registration system accessed via its website, using a new cloud-based purchase platform sponsored by PurplePass Ticketing.

Classes will be held Mondays through Fridays at Temecula Middle School beginning June 13 and concluding July 8. There is no class on the Monday, July 4th, holiday. Schedules vary; see for specific dates. Classes are intended for students in the TVUSD; 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
