High School Summer Learning Programs

The San Ramon Valley Unified School District is excited to share information about our summer learning programs.  Through our Personalized Learning Initiatives, SRVUSD is expanding educational opportunities for students during the summer months. These options are only available to students beginning  the second semester of their 8th grade year.


The 2018 high school school summer learning options include:

  • Offer SRVUSD high school summer school courses beyond remediation. High school students will be able to take SRVUSD summer classes to advance and fulfill graduation requirements.

  • Accept accredited non-district courses to meet SRVUSD advancement or graduation requirements and be included on official transcripts.

  • Partner with Diablo Valley College to host summer courses on SRVUSD campuses.


ONLY students currently enrolled in SRVUSD are eligible to register and take the summer school courses.


Click here for the informational letter that was sent to parents in February.  It is important for parents/guardians to let the district know what courses students are planning on taking this summer in order for SRVUSD counselors to plan the fall schedule.  Please do this by clicking on the appropriate link in the boxes below. 

Important note to parents of 8th grade students

  • 8th grade students are eligible to begin the advancement process beginning the second semester of their 8th grade year, and not before. (7th grade students are not eligible.)
  • Courses that are going to be used to fulfill graduation requirements  (i.e. Algebra 1 and Biology) cannot be completed before the end of the 8th grade year. 
  • In order to be counted as a graduation requirement, courses must be completed AFTER the student finishes their 8th grade year.  For current 8th graders, coursework must not begin until January of 2018 and cannot be completed until June 2, 2018 or later.
  • Course enrollment dates will be checked during the application approval process. Courses that begin prior to the beginning of the second semester will not be approved.
  • Course end dates will be checked upon official transcript submission.  Courses that end prior to the completion of the 8th grade year will not be accepted for graduation requirement fulfillment and cannot be placed on the high school transcript.

Summer School Lottery Results

The lottery for those who submitted their Intent to Enroll in an SRVUSD Summer School Course by the March 4 deadline, was held on Thursday, March 15, at 10:30 a.m. in the District Office Boardrooms.


Not all courses required a lottery.  Some courses did not have as many interested students so we were able to accommodate everyone who submitted their Intent to Enroll in an SRVUSD Summer School Course by the March 4 deadline.   


The following courses had demand that exceeded our capacity and were included in the lottery:

  • Algebra 1
  • Algebra 2
  • Vs.Net
  • Art 1

We were able to accommodate all students who submitted their Intent to Enroll by the March 4 deadline for the following courses:

  • English 12
  • Health & World Geography
  • PE 9
  • Theater Arts
  • World History

For those students who did not get their first choice but submitted their Intent to Enroll by the March 4 deadline: more information will come out after spring break regarding second and third choice options for those who made those selections.  


We will not be able to look at the secondary wait list until May, after the primary wait list has been taken care of. 

Program #1 - SRVUSD High School Summer School Opportunities

Courses for Advancement and/or Graduation Requirement Fulfillment

Where: California High and Charlotte Wood Middle School campuses

When: June 11 - July 20  (no school on Friday, June 29 or Wednesday, July 4)

Time: 8 a.m.- 12:40 p.m. 

Cost:  Free to SRVUSD students


The Intent to Enroll window closed on March 4.

To add your student to the SRVUSD Summer School Wait List,

click here.

Wait List note:   Students who met the March 4 deadline that did not get in to their desired course were placed on a wait list based on the lottery results. Students who missed the March 4 deadline will be added to the bottom of the wait list in the order that they are received.  We will not be able to provide information on your position on the wait list until second and third choices are considered for students who met the March 4 deadline.


Due to staffing limitations and high demand, the chances of students getting in to the Algebra 1, Algebra 2, or Art 1 courses are very slim.  Questions regarding  the wait list should be directed to  


Some of our courses will be taught using a hybrid learning model.The hybrid model combines teacher-led instruction with an on-line program called Edgenuity. Students will be in a summer school teacher-led class for two hours a day on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, they will have an opportunity to either meet with the teacher 1 on 1 for help or work from home on the on-line component of the course.


Courses being offered:

  • Hybrid learning model courses
    • Algebra 1 *
    • Algebra 2 *   
    • English 12 
    • Health and World Geography (must be taken together) 
    • World History 
  • Traditional, in-class courses
    • Art 1 *
    • Theater Arts 1 *
    • Computer Science C++ ( *
    • PE 9 - NOTE: students who take PE 9 in the summer will need to complete the FitnessGram in the spring at their high school.  The FitnessGram is required for every 9th grade student, per California Ed Code. 


  • Students can only take one SRVUSD summer school course per year.
  • Classes marked with * can be used for Advancement purposes.
  • Students can only advance one level per subject per year, either through SRVUSD or an outside institution (not both).
  • If you are currently in Algebra 1 and looking for Geometry, you are able to take it from an outside institution. SRVUSD is not offering it in Summer School.
  • Students cannot go from Algebra 1 to Algebra 2 and skip Geometry. The progression is from Algebra 1 to Geometry to Algebra 2. As stated above, students can only advance through one level of math per year.

Students who were hoping to use one of the above courses for advancement purposes but did not get in still have time to register for Advancement Via Outside Institution (see Program #2 process below). The deadline to enroll in an advancement course from an outside institution is June 25. This may be a better option for some courses as spaces may not become available in the SRVUSD Algebra 1, or Art 1 courses due to  high demand. 


Courses for Remediation /Credit Recovery

Where: California High and Charlotte Wood Middle School campuses

When: Session 1 -  June 11 - June 28 (no school on Friday, June 29)

            Session 2 - July 2 - July 20 (no school on Wednesday, July 4)

Time: 8 a.m.- 12:40 p.m. 

Enrollment for Remediation Summer School is coordinated through the student's counselor and not via this site. 


SRVUSD summer school will continue to offer courses for students who need to remediate a D or F grade. Students should meet with their counselors to learn more about this program.   


Courses being offered include:

  • English 9, English 10 and English 11
  • Spanish 1
  • US History and World History
  • Biology and Chemistry
  • Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2 and High School Math
  • ESY - Special Ed

How many days of summer school can my student miss?

We strongly discourage students from missing any days of summer school due to the compressed timeline. However, we know this is not always possible.  For remedial summer school classes and advancement classes that are not taught through hybrid learning, students can only miss one day per session. For hybrid learning classes, students can miss up to 3 days over both sessions.  Any work assigned during a student’s absence is the student’s responsibility to make up.  All students must show up on the first day or they will be dropped from the class.


Venture School - Independent Study Summer School

As in past years, Venture School will continue to have an Independent Study summer school program for high school students that are credit deficient and/or want to remediate a D or F grade. Every summer about 160 students from the other high schools in the District attend Venture summer school. Venture School offers greater flexibility in terms of when during the 6 weeks of summer school students can begin or end their course work and how often students need to come to school each week.  In general, students are only required to come to school once a week to turn in homework and take tests. However, students are encouraged to come in for one-on-one instruction or math labs as often as necessary to master their course material.


Venture summer school students can miss one week of school, which may be helpful given family vacation plans, and once a week attendance can reduce the transportation challenges created by having to go from Alamo, for example, to conventional summer school at Cal High every day. Summer jobs and sports training are among many other reasons why daily summer school attendance may be a challenge. Ask the counselor at your home school if Venture Summer School is appropriate for you.

Program #2 - Summer Advancement/Graduation Requirement Fulfillment via Outside Institutions

Students are now able to take courses from outside institutions (i.e. BYU Online, NUVHS, Quarry Lane, Etc.) for advancement and/or graduation requirement fulfillment and have these courses added to their SRVUSD transcript.  A maximum of 40 credits can be added to a student's transcript over the four years of high school.Click here for the informational letter that explains this program.


Outside institutions must meet the following requirements:

  • Must be WASC or regionally accredited and offers coursework leading to a high school diploma
    • Courses taken through providers that are WASC accredited as Supplementary Ed will not be accepted for credit.
  • Must be UC approved
  • Must issue official transcripts with letter grades 

Click here for a list of courses/institutions that have been used in the past.  SRVUSD cannot recommend any specific program. Students will need to find their own proctors for outside institution courses; SRVUSD will not proctor outside exams. 


Note:  Students can only advance one level per subject per year.

Advancement via Outside Institutions

Registration process:

  • Step 1 - Register for the desired course at the outside institution of choice
  • Step 2 - Obtain proof of enrollment document which will be needed to finalize SRVUSD registration
    • (Click here for more information on Proof of Enrollment documentation and sample documents)
  • Step 3 - Sign up for an SRVUSD Learning Stream Course System account if you don't already have one
  • Step 4 - Complete the SRVUSD Advancement via Outside Institution Registration form  - Proof of Enrollment documents must be attached for both parts of a two part course
  • Step 5 - Upon completion of the course, hand-deliver an official, unopened transcript to the counseling office to your student's high school no later that Friday, August 17.

Once the application and acceptable Proof of Enrollment documentation has been reviewed, parents will receive an email notifying them of their status.  If the document that was submitted for Proof of Enrollment was incorrect or not sufficient, parents will receive an email letting them know that additional documentation is required.  Parents are able to go back into their SRVUSD Learning Stream Course  System accounts to upload additional documents (click here for instructions). Parents will also be able to monitor the status of their application by logging in to their SRVUSD Learning Stream accounts. Please allow 10 business days for processing. 


The deadline to register for the SRVUSD Advancement program is June 25.


Graduation Requirement Fulfillment via Outside Institutions

Students are now able to take courses at outside institutions to fulfill graduation requirements and have these courses placed on their transcripts.  Courses, including Algebra 1,  that will be eligible to be added to an SRVUSD transcript to fulfill a graduation requirement must be completed after the end of a student's 8th grade year. Courses that can be taken include:

  • English 9, English 10, English 11, English 12 and AP English
  • US History, World History, AP History (Euro, US or World), World Geography, Economics and Government


  • PE 9 cannot be taken outside of SRVUSD. 
  • Any course taken to fulfill a graduation requirement MUST be placed on the SRVUSD transcript.  Students are limited to 4 classes (40 credits) over their four years of high school. Schools will share more information about this process in September.
  • Grade level courses cannot be used for advancement purposes (i.e., if a student is going in to the 10th grade in September and takes English 10 the summer prior, they cannot take English 11 as a 10th grader. The intent is to free up a period of their day to take another class.)

WARNING: The course and/or outside institution you choose to fulfill a graduation requirement for SRVUSD may not be accepted by the UC/CSU system, private colleges and universities, out-of-state institutions, or NCAA as fulfilling entrance requirements. It is your responsibility to check with an admissions officer from each campus to which you intend to apply to ensure it will be accepted.


Click here to submit your Intent to Enroll in an Outside Institution for Graduation Requirement Fulfillment. Parents will need to create an SRVUSD Learning Stream  Account if they do not already have one. 


The deadline to register for the SRVUSD Graduation Requirement Fulfillment program is June 25.

Program #3 - SRVUSD and DVC Summer School Partnership

SRVUSD/DVC Courses for Advancement and/or Graduation Requirement Fulfillment

Click here to read the informational letter explaining this program.


Important Note:  Our Intent to Enroll form closed on March 4 but students are still able to register for DVC courses.  Our Intent to Enroll form was used to gauge interest in DVC courses so we can let DVC know how many students are interested in each course for planning purposes. 


The DVC Special Admission Form was NOT due on March 4th. Please see directions below for registering for the DVC courses.


New This Year! SRVUSD is partnering with Diablo Valley College's San Ramon Campus to host a limited number of courses on our summer school campuses this year. Students can  use these courses to advance through a course sequence  and  will also be able to add them to their SRVUSD transcript if they so choose. Counselors will explain the process of adding a course to a transcript in September. Space will be very limited for these courses. 


Where:  California High School and Charlotte Wood Middle School Campuses

When:  June 18 - July 26

Time: 8:00 am - 12:40 pm

Courses being offered:

  • Geometry - MATH 114
  • Statistics - MATH 142
  • American Sign Language (ASL) - SIGN 280
  • Introduction to Business - BUS 109


DVC Enrollment Procedures for High School Students


Step 1 - Apply by submitting online application at Open CCC

Step 2 - Submit a Special Admission Recommendation Form - Please note that this form must be signed by student's high school principal so plan ahead!


DVC registration fees and all textbooks and supplies are the responsibility of the student. 


Per DVC policies, high school juniors and seniors will not be able to register for the courses until Tuesday, May 29.  Students in 10th grade or below will not be confirmed in a course until the first day of DVC classes on June 18. 


IMPORTANT! If students do not get in to the DVC course that they submitted an Intent to Enroll form for, they will have until June 25 to enroll in a substitute course from an alternate outside institution (follow Advancement via Outside Institution procedure below). However, parents/students must be aware that all courses taken for summer advancement must be started in time to complete the course, take the final exam, order/receive the official transcript and  then  hand-deliver it to the counseling office at their student's high school no later than Friday, August 17. Therefore, students who have to wait until the first day of DVC classes to enroll but do not get in to their desired course may not have time to complete this process which would prevent them from being able to advance in a class this fall. (Click here to see important enrollment deadlines for National University Virtual High School.)


DVC will continue to offer their usual summer courses at the DVC campuses in San Ramon and Pleasant Hill.  Students who wish to enroll in these courses will need to follow the DVC enrollment procedures listed above for High School Students above AND complete the Advancement via Outside Institution registration process (explained below) once they have successfully registered at DVC.
