    On-line Make-up Courses 

    Online make-up courses in the subjects of Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies are for students who failed a subject during the school year who had a minimum grade of 60-69%. If a West Chester Area School District student received a grade below 60%, he or she is not eligible to enroll in a make-up course for credit. The goals of the online high school summer school program are to help students:

    Make up a subject failed during the regular school year who earned a minimum grade of 60-69%.

    Improve a grade in a high school course already taken for credit.

    The courses are offered through Educere, a leading K-12 virtual education service organization with customers.
