Summer School

Kent ISD offers a summer school session for high school credit, open to all Kent ISD students. 

The Summer School program is centered around students completing their coursework at home or in remote locations with all final exams completed at the Kent Career Tech Center building, Kent Innovation High Wing. 

Counselors verify approval of the Summer School class for credit and enter your enrollment information with the request to waive the fee.

Testing Information

EFFECTIVE JUNE 30, 2020, ALL ON SITE TESTING IS CANCELED FOR JULY

The governor had a press conference at 3:00 pm on June 30 that outlined the roadmap for returning to schools.  Her roadmap explains that in phase three schools are not permitted to have face-to-face instruction with students.  On June 29 the Grand Rapids region was moved back to phase 3.  Therefore we will not have students on campus for testing. 

All exams are now to be completed at home. 

ALL PRIOR ON-SITE TESTING TIME SLOT SELECTIONS ARE VOID. NO ACTION IS REQUIRED: Your reservations has automatically been canceled. The campus is closed.

 

What to Expect After Enrolling
