Expectations

A positive and constructive working relationship among the School, the student and our families is essential to fulfillment of the School’s educational mission.

Structure

Courses will meet daily (five days a week) for a total of 2.5 hours a day throughout the three sessions. Students may enroll in one course per session, earning no more than three total credits throughout the Summer Learning 2020 Program. Courses will run between 9 a.m.-2 p.m. EST so as to best accommodate students from varying time zones. Students will be expected to be present for all synchronous components and the workload will reflect expectations consistent with year-long and single-term courses.
 
If either the student or the instructor does not adhere to the above structure, open and timely communication is imperative. Emergencies do happen. However, any delay in submission or response needs to be accounted for in advance. If either the instructor or the student has concerns about a lack of communication or a missed deadline, the program administrator should be contacted immediately. If a student has a problem with responsiveness from an instructor, it is that student’s obligation to contact the administrator immediately. Concerns and complaints that are not raised until the end of the program will not result in a refund or other amelioration; problems must be brought to the attention of the administration within a week of their occurrence.

  • I pledge to be truthful in my words and honorable in my actions.
  • I pledge that for any academic work, I have neither given nor received unauthorized information in the course of preparing that work (assignments, tests, examinations, projects, etc.), and I have not plagiarized.
  • I pledge to treat respectfully the person, reputation, and property of all members of the community, and our surroundings.
