June Academy is a robust educational experience for students and teachers that facilitates “learning for learning’s sake.” Participation in these courses will spark a desire for students to be curious, learn new things, and ignite their own creativity. Students engage in work outside of the standard curriculum in an area of special interest. June Academy courses will be graded on a pass/fail basis, and students are expected to follow regular attendance policies.
June Academy is right around the corner and we are excited for what’s in store! It is scheduled to begin on June 11th and will conclude on June 22nd barring any additional snow days. With 80 courses to choose from, we hope that there is something for everyone with varied interests, passions, and learning styles.

Please note that course assignments are prioritized by grade level. It is imperative that you complete the survey to the best of your ability. Failure to complete the survey will result in courses being chosen for you. If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Gordon or Mr. Luu.
June Academy course selections are due by Friday, March 30th at 3PM. In addition, there will be an opportunity for all students to complete their course selection next week in school.
Looking forward to June!
