Summer Academy Remediation (incoming 10th-12th)
June 13 - July 20

We offer a remediation program for students who need to elevate a D or F grade from the prior school year. O'Dowd students receive full academic credit for these classes. Students from other schools should check with their counselors or Academic Assistant Principals on academic credit eligibility. Students cannot be promoted to the next level of a content area unless they pass the previous class. In general, D's need to be remediated to retain college eligibility. Some colleges allow 'validation' of a first semester D in math and foreign language with a C or higher during second semester, but colleges change their policies often and unpredictably (e.g. University of Oregon, for instance, no longer allows validation). D's in Religion or non-college prep classes can be left for strict college eligibility purposes, but will negatively impact the overall GPA. The safest approach to ensure eligibility is to remediate D's.

Courses are offered in two formats, as traditional classrooms and as micro courses (1 - 5 students).  The format and cost varies based on student need.  Courses that traditionally have low enrollment turn into micro courses, students meet for a shorter amount of time daily and can often move through the curriculum at an accelerated pace.  A laptop is required for all courses.

All classes offered in this program provide full academic credit for O'Dowd students. Students from other schools should check with their counselors or Academic Assistant Principals to see if O'Dowd courses are acceptable for remediation purposes.
