This summer, Eagle County Schools is offering an online summer school program.

The program is for students entering third through 12th grade, and includes a variety of classes including both core curriculum and electives. The classes will be delivered through Odysseyware, a fully accredited online distance-learning academy.

The online classes will be offered through the district’s World Academy.

“We would love to work with any student who would like a flexible program and would like to strengthen skills over the summer,” said Wade Hill, who’s running the summer school program, and is World Academy principal.

The program is flexible; parents and students can design what they need. Students can recover credit for failed classes or complete required courses or work ahead. All courses are self-paced online, and a local, certified teacher will be available in a learning lab at both ends of Vail Valley.

Students heading into high school can take courses to create more flexibility in course scheduling during the school year.

“Completing classes online is becoming more common as both a direct avenue through school and as a complementary enrichment tool for traditional classroom work,” Hill said.
