Please consider the amount of work time required prior to enrolling in an online summer school course. If you are committed to sports camps, band camps, church camps, family vacations, travel abroad, etc. and will not have daily reliable internet access or time to work on your course each day, you should carefully consider whether or not you will have sufficient time to complete the work successfully.

Half credit and recovery courses are designed to require approximately 72-90 hours of work, and full credit courses are designed to require approximately 144 - 180 hours of work.

You must be available to work on your class for several hours each day in order to finish in the six week summer term. Online courses are a different and exciting way to learn but they are not the "easy" way to earn credits.

Students may recover a credit or earn initial credit to move ahead toward graduation. It is strongly recommended that no more than a half credit be attempted during summer school unless the student is willing to make an extraordinary time commitment.

Labs will be available at each of the three Putnam County high schools each day during the summer school term. Lab hours are as follows:

CHS - 8 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.

MHS - 8 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.

UHS - 8 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.

Before you register for an online course, you must first meet with your guidance counselor to determine if the course you are interested in will meet your needs and help you move toward graduation.

Once you have determined that an online course or courses will meet your needs, follow these steps:

  • Check the calendar on the home page to find out the deadlines for each school term.
  • Check the list of available courses and the time frame to complete the course.
  • Check the course description and the list of required materials.
  • Talk to the Onsite Facilitator in your school. They are listed along with phone numbers and email addresses on the Contact Us page.
  • Set up an account in Genius, our Student Information System. You must complete all the information requested and make sure it is accurate.
  • After your application is approved, you can submit a course request in Genius. Click HERE for the list of summer school courses.
  • Your Onsite Facilitator will collect any fees due and then approve your course.
  • You and your parents must read and agree to abide by the VITAL Academic Integrity Policy and the VITAL Code of Conduct.
  • After you are enrolled in your course, you will be required to attend an orientation at your school to help get you started and be successful in your course.
