Columbus City Schools to Offer Virtual Summer School Programming for K-12 Students

June 15th through July 25th

In its continued effort to balance the safety and health of all students and staff, Columbus City Schools (CCS) will continue its Online Virtual Academy by offering an online, month-long summer school program for students in grades K-12. 

The Columbus City Schools Summer Experience, which is free for CCS students, will take place from June 15th through July 25th. Students enrolling in summer school will continue to use the online educational platforms Edmentum, iReady, Study Island, and Achieve3000, the platforms students currently use in the CCS Online Learning Academy.

“This online Summer Experience will provide students who need additional support, the opportunity to complete additional learning,” said Dr. Talisa Dixon, Superintendent/CEO Columbus City Schools. “Whether it’s catching up with their classmates, working ahead, or recapturing courses they may have struggled with,” added Dixon.

Registration begins Tuesday, May 26th through Friday, June 5th through the Infinite Campus Parent Portal.

Online programming for elementary and middle school students will be held Monday through Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to Noon. 

The District’s secondary students will use the CCS VCAP platform, Monday through Friday, June 15th through July 24th. The CCS Summer Program will offer expanded hours to enable students more flexibility to work on their assignments, take tests, and get the support they need to complete their courses successfully. 

For students served in multiple disability classrooms, summer school will address the Ohio Extended Learning Standards for ELA and Math (K-12). Students and families will log in to Google Classroom to access materials from Unique Learning System as well as teacher-directed enrichment activities.

Language assistance will be available for families throughout the summer.
