Summer Enrichment Academy Launched by Dublin Partners in Education
Dublin Partners in Education recently announced the creation of a Summer Enrichment Academy for high school students with the assistance of Las Virgenes Education Foundation (LVEF). Courses will be offered at Dublin High School starting in mid-June as outlined below.
Courses offered for Summer 2012 include: Speech and Debate, Spanish 1, World History, Geometry, U.S. History, Honors Chemistry/Lab, Health and Physical Education.
The announced program is fee-based and enables high school students to take additional courses over the summer to provide more flexibility in course scheduling during the school year. Dublin students are given priority registration and the program is open to students from outside the District.
Dublin Unified School District Superintendent Dr. Stephen Hanke, “Through the DPIE Summer Enrichment Academy, Dublin High School students will be able to complete classes toward graduation during the summer break. They will then be able to expand their participation in academies, the arts, and other electives during the year. This will clearly enrich the educational experience of our students and help us expand opportunities for them to succeed.”
