MPS Summer Academy June Session goes online

Summer Academy BannerSummer provides a critical learning window for many MPS students. To support credit recovery and other learning needs, the June Session of Summer Academy will take place through an online platform this year. Students in schools on the early start calendar (last day of class is May 21) are eligible to enroll in June Session.

June Session will be held this summer from June 1 to 26. High schoolers, current 8th-graders, and students in Extended School Year can attend. High school students can earn up to one credit through credit recovery (retaking a course to earn credit) or one-half credit through credit acceleration (taking a course for credit the first time).

June session will be held Monday through Friday from 8:30 A.M. to 12:30 P.M.

Please note: July Session will be held July 6 to 31. Details will be posted in the coming weeks.

How will online learning work?

  • Students will need a computer or Chromebook and Internet access daily. MPS is currently providing Chromebooks to students; families should make requests now to their school principal.
  • Students move through designated coursework at their own pace at home.
  • Students will work with licensed teachers.
  • Summer Academy is open to all city of Milwaukee residents who need to recover or obtain credits.

Registration is now open! Register online at June Academy. Paper forms will be available starting the week of May 11 at MPS Stop, Grab, and Go sites. Paper forms can be scanned and emailed to elo@milwaukee.k12.wi.us or can be dropped at Stop, Grab, and Go sites. Families may also mail their forms to MPS Room 150, 5225 W. Vliet St., Milwaukee, WI 53208.

Students not currently enrolled in MPS are eligible! Families must submit their registration and have their school counselor email a current copy of their transcript and a letter of course requests to elo@milwaukee.k12.wi.us. Students who are not city of Milwaukee residents must submit tuition payment at the time of registration. Course selections will be determined by a school counselor.

Special note: Students with no course progress two or more days in Summer Academy may be dropped from their courses; in this event, students will not earn credit for those courses.

To learn more, visit the Summer Academy page of the MPS website, contact your child’s school counselor, or email elo@milwaukee.k12.wi.us.
