Courses for Original Credit

Health-This is an online course. Students may work at their own pace provided they submit completed assignments by the due dates. Students will meet at Elder for approximately 1 hour on Wednesday, May 29 at 7:45am to meet the teacher and obtain class information and the textbook. Students will also meet at Elder for approximately one hour on Wednesday, June 19 at 7:45am to take the final test and return the textbook. Students must have access to email and a computer to complete this course. The cost for the original credit course is $300. Students must be registered by Wednesday, May 22.
Physical Education-The Physical Education (PE) course is open to students currently in grades 8-11. The PE course may require students to make arrangements for transportation to off-campus sites and pay a minimal additional fee for a few activities. The majority of the activities will take place on Elder’s campus. The course will meet daily from 7:45am-10:30am, May 29-June 19. The fee for the course is $300.
Students who successfully pass these courses would receive high school credit. The acceptance of the credit is determined by the individual high school.
Registration starts Monday, March 18. Students interested in taking one of these courses should submit a completed registration form and the tuition fee to the main office. Summer school information including the registration form and course descriptions may be obtained from the student’s counselor, the main office, or online at elderhs.org.
