Summer 2024 APEX Program

James Wood High School will be offering courses for credit recovery this summer through APEX.  Apex is a computer-based program that allows students to complete a course online while being monitored by a teacher from James Wood High School.  Students will be limited to 2 recovery courses or one new course in the Apex summer program.  New courses will only be offered via Apex if there are available seats after credit recovery registration.  

Applications will be accepted online via the James Wood High School website beginning May 28, with a deadline of noon on June 17. Access the online application.

Approved applicants will be notified by email.  Once approved, payment can be made via MySchoolBucks.  Information on how to access courses will be emailed by June 17.    

Classes will start on June 17 and must be completed by August 9.  All work will be done virtually.  Students must have internet access in order to take a summer school course.  Teachers will meet with students virtually via Google Meet as needed and requested by the student.  Face-to-face meetings will take place upon appointment with the teacher.

If you plan to take a summer course, please do NOT turn in your Chromebook at the end of the school year.  You may keep it over the summer to complete your summer courses.

Fees: Repeat courses cost $250 for a full credit and $125 for a half credit course.  New courses cost $325 for a full credit and $165 for a half credit course.  New courses are subject to availability.  All fees must be paid in advance via MySchoolBucks.  No refunds will be given after a course has started.
